Real Doctor, Beautiful Results
Since hands receive so much exposure, they often show visible signs of aging. This can include wrinkles, brown spots, and pronounced veins that are the result of the natural aging process as well as exposure to the sun. A loss of fatty tissue can also make our hands appear bony and fragile. Discolored, wrinkled, and veiny hands can often make us feel self-conscious about our appearance.
Many women camouflage tell-tale signs of aging on the face by using make-up. However, it is much more difficult to do so with aging hands. That’s why it is often said that the hands are a true indicator of age. The hands receive as much, if not more sun exposure than the face, yet often go unprotected.
There are a number of effective techniques and technologies that can rejuvenate your hands, improving the quality and texture of skin, while decreasing the wrinkling and prominent veins. These can include skin resurfacing, the use of lasers, cosmetic fillers, and more.
Approach to Treatment
At your initial consultation, Dr. Friedman will examine your hands and evaluate the current state of your skin. He will discuss available and relevant treatment options with you based upon your desired outcome. Dr. Friedman will then prescribe an appropriate course of treatment personalized for your individual skin type, with the goal of making your hands appear more youthful, supple and soft. Improving skin texture and tone, restoring volume, and removing age and sun spots will help to make your hands look their best. The type and frequency of treatment differs from patient to patient. Depending on the selected course of treatment, any associated downtime can vary.
