Common Aesthetic Concerns

Hand skin is thin and fragile, and usually exposed to UV rays, which causes skin laxity and loss of volume over time. Most people tend to forget wearing sunscreen on the hands, which also contributes to the early signs of aging in the hands. Some of the common concerns related to the hands that can be addressed by a hand surgeon or a cosmetic surgeon include:

  • Hyperpigmentation or age spots and dark skin
  • Depletion of skin volume and visible appearance of veins and tendons
  • Thin, bony and wrinkled appearance of the hands
  • Irregular skin color, tone and texture

Invasive and non-invasive hand rejuvenation procedures can help to reverse the signs of aging and restore a youthful appearance of the hands. Leading plastic surgeon Dr. Yalif receives patients from Atlanta, Roswell, Woodstock, and nearby areas for hand rejuvenation.

 

Fat Grafting

To add volume to the hands, the surgeon may perform a fat transfer procedure. This will involve liposuction surgery to remove the required amount of fat from donor sites in the body where excess fat deposits are present. This fat is then processed and sterilized for re-injected into the targeted areas of the hands.

The harvested fat is grafted in multiple layers to achieve smooth, linear and natural looking results. Sometimes FDA approved dermal fillers may be used instead of fat grafting to volumize the hands and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds.

 

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is a time-tested non-surgical injectable technique to eliminate the unsightly appearance of spider veins and minor varicose veins. A saline solution is injected directly into the targeted vein, causing it to blanch and gradually disappear.

 

Chemical Peels

Sun damage, discoloration, wrinkles, and irregular pigmentation in the hands can be improved with chemical peels. Superficial peels, which are mild in strength, are usually more appropriate for hands because of the delicate skin of hands.

 

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is a fantastic and marvelous non-surgical hand rejuvenation treatment. It involves exposure of the affected areas to short and controlled bursts of high intensity laser energy to gently exfoliate the topmost layers of dead or unhealthy skin cells.

 

IPL Treatment

Intense Pulsed Light or IPL treatment is a popular non-invasive procedure to remove dark spots and hyperpigmentation from the skin of hands. A series of mild treatments of light waves can help the patient achieve rejuvenated hand skin.

The types of hand rejuvenation treatments

Similar to other types of plastic surgery, hand rejuvenation surgery includes various procedures. Each has its own advantages and associated risks. The common procedure types include:

1. Sclerotherapy: procedure to straighten out veins. During this treatment a sclerosing solution is injected to a specific vein. The irritation caused by this chemical agent turns veins white. The veins disappear gradually.

2. Laser Skin Resurfacing: as the name suggests treatment is done via directing short bursts of laser onto the skin. Dark spots and crooked veins are rectified. Skin prep before the surgery is done by applying glycolic acid.

3. Injecting fillers: fillers like collagen, fat, restylane, etc. are injected into the hand to give a fuller appearance. Skin that appears plump appears youthful.

4. Microdermabrasion: outer layer of the skin is polished by rubbing off the superficial layer by using microscopic crystals. Skin protection from the sun is imperative post microdermabrasion. Do remember to apply sun screen before stepping out.

The procedures are explained in detail by the plastic surgeon. To start with it is important to first discuss with the plastic surgeon on your expectations from the treatment. Hand rejuvenation procedure is the least time consuming procedure that allows you to get back home as soon as the procedure is completed.
