Do your hands look older than they did at the beginning of 2020? You are not alone. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected us in many different ways, especially how often we wash and sanitize our hands. Months of excessive hand washing and using alcohol-based sanitizers all throughout the day has had an impact. If your hands look and feel years older due to the rough elements of 2020, consider a hand rejuvenation treatment.
Even under normal circumstances, the hands are exposed to harsh elements. They encounter cleaning chemicals, sun exposure and abrasive injuries. The skin on the hands becomes thinner with less elasticity as you get older and fat is lost under the skin. It is very common for hands to begin to look wrinkled and bony with age. With the added stress of constant sanitizing to the skin over the last few months, it is no wonder many people’s hands look years older.
Hand Rejuvenation Treatment Options
There are a few different hand rejuvenation treatments that we offer at Arcadia Wellness Center. Many of the same skin treatments that can be used to make your face more youthful can also rejuvenate the skin on the hands. Hand rejuvenation treatments can help eliminate sunspots, tighten skin, smooth wrinkles and add volume to bony hands. One or more of the following treatments may be recommended to help improve the appearance of your hands.
Laser skin treatments use light energy to repair the skin from damage. IPL or Intense pulsed light treatments can improve the skin’s surface. IPL treatments or photo facials can be used to fade away sunspots and improve the texture of the skin, including the skin on the hands.
If your hands are wrinkled and the skin seems thin, skin tightening treatments may help your hands look younger. Skin tightening uses radiofrequency (RF) heat to stimulate collagen production in the skin to improve elasticity and firmness.
Restylane dermal filler was the first dermal filler to be FDA-approved for hand rejuvenation treatments. If you have noticeable tendons or veins on your hands due to lost volume, Restylane injections are a solution. In one quick treatment, Restylane hand rejuvenation treatment can restore a softer, more youthful appearance to your hands.
