Banish Wrinkles and Age Spots with Hand Rejuvenation Treatment
The sight of an elegantly curved hand, graced with all the beauty and strength of youth, is a thing to be admired. But as we age, our hands become battered by years of exposure to sun and wind. As a result, we see the slow emergence of age spots, wrinkles, and the gaunt appearance that comes from the sharp outlines of bones and tendons. Whether your hands are suffering from the tell-tale spots that denote aging, or if they suffer from lack of youthful, healthy collagen, the powerful hand revitalization treatment offered by Board Certified Drs. Burton and Reps Sundin at the Modern Body Contouring and Laser Center (MBody) will help your hands regain the heathy glow of youth once again.
At MBody, with offices in Richmond and Vienna, Virginia, Drs. Sundin have developed their own unique approach to hand rejuvenation which addresses both pigmentation problems and loss of volume. By using light therapy techniques, combined with revolutionary collagen-based dermal fillers, their hand rejuvenation treatment address the roots of aging at its source. The non-surgical treatment is comfortable, minimally invasive, and can easily be performed during a short, simple office visit. There’s no need for anesthesia, and the treatment involves no downtime for recovery—so you’ll be back to your daily routines almost immediately, proudly showing off a pair of youthful, revitalized hands.
Hand Rejuvenation—How It Works
Our hand rejuvenation procedure takes into account the two most common issues affecting the hand’s aesthetic appeal: skin damage and lack of collagen. For that reason, our approach is two-fold. A powerful system of intense pulsed light (IPL) pours its healing strength into the skin of the hand. And to fill in those harsh lines and gaunt aspects of aging, a gentle, collagen-based dermal filler is used to give the hand a pleasing, youthful plumpness.
Intense Pulse Light (IPL) Treatments
Intense Pulsed Light is one of the top techniques used in the treatment of skin suffering from sun damage. And many of us, although diligent about applying sunscreen to our faces, often forget that the hands are the portion of the body that receives the most sun exposure! Therefore, the hands can develop age spots, pigmentation abnormalities, and a weathered-looking texture long before our face betrays our true age. IPL works through targeting the troubled spots with a precise, non-damaging ray that radiates multi-wavelength light deep under the surface of the skin, stimulating collagen production and the formation of new skin cells. Although the upper layer of skin remains cool and unaffected, the procedure stimulates the body’s natural regenerative powers, allowing it to smooth over irregularities in pigmentation, as well as forming new, unblemished skin across the hand.
A More Youthful Appearance with Radiesse®
The gaunt, bony appearance of aging hands is often the result of loss of collagen under the dermis, revealing bones and tendons that were once covered under a healthier mantle of youthful skin. Radiesse® is a safe, effective dermal filler that plumps out the flesh around the hands, encouraging a youthful, healthy appearance. Approved by the FDA as the only dermal filler appropriate for use on hands, the benefits of Radiesse® are both short and long term—reducing wrinkles and fine lines, smoothing the soft tissues and stimulating the body’s natural production of collagen. This is a benefit, the results of which you will continue to experience for up to a full year following treatment.
This two-fold hand rejuvenation technique is a quick and easy treatment, requiring no surgical techniques or downtime. It can often be accomplished in a simple 30 minute office visit, typically resulting in minimal and temporary side effects, allowing you to return rapidly to your normal routines. After your treatment, you will see immediate improvements in the appearance of your hands, but the full effects of the treatment will not be visible for several weeks afterwards, as your body’s production of collage intensifies. The treatment has long-lasting effects, with most patients continuing to experience gorgeous, youthfully healthy hands for a year following treatment.
