Do you feel like your hands are the oldest looking part of your body?
You’re not alone. With all the incredible non-invasive facial rejuvenation technologies out there, people are looking younger and younger all the time. Why should hands be any different? They’re in full view all day long… when we shake hands… when we hail a cab… when we show off our new jewelry… 🙂

What is Hand Rejuvenation?
Hand rejuvenation involves two separate treatments:
- Injectible Soft Tissue Filler: Long-lasting soft tissue fillers like Radiesse make an excellent choice for hand rejuvenation. The filler is placed very precisely to hide and soften the appearance of tendons and veins on the top of the hands, which takes years off immediately.
- Laser Treatments: The hands are exposed to an awful lot of sun in a lifetime, and sun damage can make them look years older than they actually are. Specialized laser treatments like IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) therapy can drastically lessen the appearance of brown spots with nearly no downtime.
Does it hurt?
Both parts of the procedure are surprisingly comfortable! In our office, we typically use numbing cream for the filler injections and for the laser treatments, so you won’t feel much of anything.
When will I see the results?
The results of the filler treatment to hide the tendons and veins will be visible immediately. With the laser treatments, the brown spots on the skin will initially get slightly darker, and then gradually lighten and fade over the next 2-3 weeks. Occasionally, it’s necessary to do small “touch-ups” of either the filler or laser treatment to get a perfect result, but this is a very easy and comfortable thing to do.
How long does it last?
Fillers such as Radiesse can last up to 12 months (sometimes longer in the hands), but the laser treatments are permanent.
