Conveniently located to serve the areas of San Diego, CA

hand rejuvenation

Hand rejuvenation is an effective way to reduce signs of aging and sun damage in the hands. Volume loss is associated with looking older as the veins and tendons on the back of the hands become more prominent. There are many treatments to reduce the look of aging on the hands and reintroduce lost fullness, including the use of dermal fillers, lasers, and chemical peels. 

At Alexus Medspa in San Diego, our team of medical providers perform many treatments under the guidance of Dr. John T. Alexander II and Dr. Jordan S. Kaplan. To schedule a private consultation with us, you can contact us directly at (888) 463-9532 or fill out this form.

About Hand Rejuvenation

Our hands are not only essential tools for everyday tasks but also highly visible indicators of our age and overall well-being. Hand rejuvenation, a comprehensive approach to restoring youth and vitality to the hands, is an increasingly popular procedure.

As we grow older, our hands are susceptible to volume loss and sun damage. Loss of elastin and collagen fibers, subcutaneous fat loss, as well as bone and muscle atrophy can bring attention to aging hands. (1) Veins can also start to protrude, and sun exposure can amplify discoloration. To replenish the youthful structure of your hands, there are three minimally invasive options:

  • Dermal Fillers
  • Laser Treatments
  • Chemical Peels

Dermal Fillers

Since the skin on the hands can be extremely sensitive and delicate, it is more prone to developing uneven pigmentation and wrinkles due to aging. One of the best ways to treat wrinkles in particular is with dermal filler injections.

Dermal fillers can be placed under the skin using a fine needle to plump the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles immediately. In addition to an instant fullness under the skin, fillers can stimulate your body to create collagen in the area in which they are injected. (2)

  • Radiesse – Made up of calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), this filler replaces missing volume. Since CaHA can be found naturally in the bones and teeth, it is a naturally occurring bodily substance, making this treatment safe and effective.
  • Restylane Lyft – This filler contains the active ingredient hyaluronic acid (HA), which is essential for hydration. Its primary use is for cheek fullness restoration, and it works in the same way to make the hands plump and full.
  • Sculptra – Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) helps with the production of collagen, and when used in the hands, this filler can help rejuvenate the skin directly. Collagen production is essential for your skin to look younger and healthier.

The dermal filler treatment process is simple and quick, and there is usually very little to no downtime for the patient. Fillers can also be combined with other treatments to achieve the desired effect.

Laser Treatments

To address concerns such as age spots, sun damage, and uneven skin tone on the hands, we offer advanced laser treatments. Our state-of-the-art lasers target pigmented lesions, stimulating collagen production and promoting the growth of healthier, younger-looking skin. The laser treatment effectively reduces the visibility of age spots, evens out skin tone, and improves overall texture. Multiple sessions may be required for optimal results, and our skilled team will customize a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.

Commonly used in the treatment of hands, ablative lasers can achieve maximum results. Here are the laser and light treatments we offer:

Laser skin rejuvenation can include non-ablative treatment, such as broadband light (BBL) targeting problem areas underneath the surface layer of the skin, and allowing little damage to the epidermis, or ablative treatment. Ablative lasers create a controlled wound to promote new skin regeneration. The collagen in the skin is then kicked into overdrive to try and heal the wound, boosting its production and effectively allowing new skin to grow. In hand rejuvenation, the production of collagen is very important to encourage restoration of the skin. This reduces the look of fine lines and brings life back to the skin.

One of the key benefits of laser hand rejuvenation is its ability to specifically target unwanted pigmentation or age spots on the hands. The laser energy is absorbed by the pigmented areas, causing them to break down and fade over time. This can significantly improve the overall tone and texture of your hands, giving them a more even and youthful look.

Chemical Peels

A chemical peel is a highly effective aesthetic procedure that involves the application of a chemical solution to the skin. This solution causes controlled exfoliation and removal of the outermost layers of the skin, revealing a fresh, rejuvenated complexion underneath. In the case that you have issues with pigmentation or discoloration of the hands, chemical peels can be a great, straightforward treatment option.

Alexus Medspa offers the Jessner Peel, a treatment that removes the outermost layer of skin, promoting the reduction of wrinkles and lightning of hyperpigmentation. This peel works by prompting skin regrowth, enhancing the overall youthful and smooth appearance of the skin. When applied to the hands, it is important that the chemical makeup is much lighter than it would be if used for facial peeling. (3)

Benefits of Hand Rejuvenation Treatments

Noticing skin changes and signs of aging on the hands can be very frustrating. Even if you are diligent with sun protection and daily moisturizing, you may still notice significant changes. There are many benefits to receiving treatment for aging of the hands:

  • Reduces the appearance of wrinkles
  • Increases fullness and elasticity of the hands
  • Corrects certain pigmentation changes like age spots
  • More cost-effective and less invasive than surgical treatments
  • Minimal to no downtime for treatment
  • Extremely customizable and combinable

Candidates for Hand Rejuvenation

There are several reasons patients might inquire about hand treatments:

  • Obvious or early signs of aging on the hands
  • Discoloration from sun exposure
  • Raised or unsightly veins on the hands
  • Loose or wrinkled skin leading to a bony look
  • Hands look older than the rest of the body

Whether you are just now noticing the loss of fat in your hands, or you have been hiding your hands for a while, it is never too late to try these treatments to restore fullness and confidence.

Personal Consultation at Alexus Medspa

During your personal consultation with one of our medical experts, we will ask about the condition of your hands and what your overall goals are. Your answers will inform what treatments might be right for you. A member of our staff will schedule an appropriate treatment based on your individual needs.

Recovery and Results

The recovery process for most hand rejuvenation treatments is very short. If you receive dermal fillers, you will experience slight bruising and swelling, but it should go down in a few days. Laser treatments can be more invasive, requiring a longer recovery that usually lasts around 1 to 2 weeks depending on your specific treatment plan.

What are some non-surgical options for hand rejuvenation?

There is a range of treatments tailored specifically for hand rejuvenation. Dermal fillers are a popular choice, as they can add volume to the hands, smoothing out wrinkles and restoring a more youthful appearance. Laser treatments and chemical peels can also be effective in reducing pigmentation, improving skin tone, and tightening loose skin on the hands.

Can I just remove my stubborn veins to make my hands look younger?

There are procedures used to remove the veins completely, but they often lead to problems with future blood circulation. It also makes it harder to reach a blood source for IVs and drawing blood. Fat transfer and dermal fillers allow you to keep these essential veins by camouflaging them.

How long do the results of hand rejuvenation last?

The longevity of hand rejuvenation results can vary depending on factors such as the specific treatment used, individual skin characteristics, and lifestyle factors. Generally, dermal fillers for the hands can last anywhere from 6 months to over a year. Laser treatments and chemical peels may require multiple sessions for optimal results, and their effects can be long-lasting when combined with proper skincare maintenance and sun protection.
