Treat signs of aging
Our hands can quickly give away our age in a matter of seconds. Today, a series of new hand rejuvenation procedures offer us a chance to turn back the hands of time on our hands. Common signs of aging in the hands are age spots, rough areas and a loss of fatty tissue making our hands look bony. Hand rejuvenation techniques can in the course of two treatments change the appearance of your hands. During your consultation, Dr Lorraine Smith will discuss your treatment options and help you achieve superior results.
TYPES OF HAND REJUVENATION TREATMENTS
Prescription topical treatments and medical-grade skin care products can be effective for treating dryness, pigmentary change and create much fresher looking skin.
Dermal fillers such as Teoxane Teyosal are injected into the hands to plump out the tissues in the hands restoring a more youthful, smooth appearance. Results can last 12-24 months depending on the filler agent selected. You can achieve outstanding results by combining fillers with PRP therapy. This is sometimes referred to as a Vampire lift R.
