If you have age spots on your hands that you are looking to erase, then consider a Hand Lift in Melbourne, Florida. Dr. Clevens believes that treating aging hands is a three-step process. First, if you have age spots as well as discoloration, we will treat it with Intense Pulse Light (IPL), which is a quick and easy way to erase spots. Secondly, if you have loss of volume and thin skin, injectable fillers will plump the hands and give you a more youthful look. Finally, to keep the skin on the hands looking younger it is important to take care of them as part of your daily skin care routine. Use a UVB/UVA sunscreen daily and avoid direct sun exposure as much as possible.
Combating the aging hand syndrome takes more than hand cream (though that simple step does make a difference). The latest technology has given us a set of procedures that will have similar effects as those we have been able to accomplish for the face. One of the most age-telling body features is our hands. Because the skin on the back of your hands is extremely thin, the loss of fat padding shows as we age. Our hands lose firmness and plumpness and the underlying structures appear and make them look bony and fragile with tendon, bone and vein protrusion. In addition, sun exposure over the decades sets up a prolonged cascade of liver spots and brown patches that blemish your hand.
