The hand can show changes due to aging and sun overexposure just like other parts of the body. The concepts for treatment are similar – Restore lost volume, restore skin tightness and elasticity.
Lost volume can be addressed with injections of fat, Radiesse, or Juvederm/Restylane. The injections are well tolerated and offer great results. There is no comparative study to assess which technique is best but I believe all are good. I prefer to use Radiesse because it lasts long and there is not the added procedure of harvesting fat. Results will be complete after a few days of swelling.
Restoring the skin can be done with lasers. I recommend the Matrix Laser (Fractional CO2) or the Pearl Laser from Cutera. The newer tighter skin will be noticeable within 1 week. These lasers can also remove brown pigment spots. Lasers can also be used on the arms.
