Here at Greenwich Dermatology™, we have more than one trick up our sleeve to give your hands a youth boost. Brown spots are treated with one of our many pigment lasers, while bony hands can be gently plumped up with fillers, specifically FDA-cleared for that purpose. Crepey skin will be firmed up with one of our skin tightening devices and will be stimulated to maintain results thanks to a new volumizing moisturizer. Best of all, this can all be done on the same day.
While some hand creams can improve the appearance of dark spots, wrinkles, and crepey skin, many don’t work the way they claim to. However, if you want to look into a hand cream before anything else, get one that contains retinol or hyaluronic acid. Those ingredients will do the best job firming, hydrating, and regenerating the skin on your hands.
One of the most popular procedures that people look to for aging hands is laser treatment. This tightens the skin and can also eliminate dark spots, which is ideal for people with splotchy pigmentation or crepey skin.
You might feel a slight pinch that comes along with any injection, but most patients find this procedure to be relatively painless. Afterwards, there might be slight discomfort due to swelling, since the hand does not have as much circulation as other parts of the body. But this swelling should subside in one to two weeks.
Fillers can be used to alleviate the bony and veiny appearance of the back of the hands, which commonly occurs with age. This happens because both muscles and skin in this area atrophy over time.
