What is a hand lift?
Frequently the focus of cosmetic improvement is the face. Yet, 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.
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.
“The Hand Lift” is a fast, super simple procedure that literally converts older-looking hands into younger looking hands in minutes. Dr. Clevens achieves complete hand rejuvenation by combining Radiesse with Artisan Skin Resurfacing.
Radiesse injections immediately re-plump and replenish volume to the back of the hands to provide a supple and youthful appearance instantly. Placed beneath the skin, Radiesse raises the skin level so that tendons, joints and veins lose their prominence. Radiesse provides instant and durable long lasting results.
Artisan Laser is used to diminish the appearance of brown spots and pigmentation. This laser seeks out darker pigment with a single, painless treatment. Within 7-10 days the brown spots slough off and you are left with more youthful appearing hands.
