If you have been to a Houston med spa recently, there is a good chance that you underwent a treatment or procedure designed specifically to help you look younger, healthier, and full of life. For most people, this means chemical peels, microdermabrasion, or some form of laser skin resurfacing therapy. The problem is that you have probably focused almost entirely on your face, neck, and shoulders because they are the parts of your body that you see the most. Nothing will give away your true age faster than your hands. Fortunately, there are a number of things you can do in order to rejuvenate your hands and help them look and feel young again.
Get Rid of Age Spots and Wrinkles on Your Hands with a Laser Treatment
The easiest way to help your hands look young again is by minimizing or eliminating obvious age spots and wrinkles. To date, one of the most effective treatments is laser light therapy. There are a variety of laser technologies which are designed to specifically target brown pigment spots. Following your treatment, a scab will form for about a week. As the scab flakes off, neutral pigmented skin will be revealed underneath.
In most instances, you will be able to target age spots and wrinkles simultaneously with AFT laser treatments. Depending upon your specific situation, 3 to 5 sessions is normally required in order to achieve the best possible results. In most cases, the more harsh or intense the treatment is, the better the results will be. At the same time, the more intensive treatment is the longer your downtime will be. Many people have discovered that certain laser treatments strike the perfect balance between pain (generally considered to be mild), recovery time, and results.
Eliminate Loose Skin with Chemical Peels or Injectable Fillers
Along with getting wrinkles and age spots, your skin gradually becomes looser over time. In order to fully restore your hands both of these issues must be addressed. Chemical peels have been shown to help stimulate collagen production which will enhance your long term results and tighten skin. Injectable fillers such as Radiesse have been shown to be uniquely beneficial for hands. Most physicians prefer to inject into the space between the tendons. This ensures the best possible results by making sure the filler goes where it is needed most.
Setting Up Your Own Customized Strategy
The easiest way to develop a customized strategy to make your hands look and feel younger is by consulting with a professional at a high quality Houston med spa. They will be able to identify your primary problem areas and suggest a variety of treatment options which will help you achieve the results you want. Along with focusing on specific treatments, you should always inquire as to which treatments can be completed simultaneously. Nearly every treatment which provides long term results on your hands will require some amount of recovery time. By undergoing multiple procedures simultaneously, you can recover from all of them at once rather than individually.
