HAND REJUVENATION – Houston, TX
Overtime, our hands can become weathered and start to look aged. Most of this occurs secondary to sun damage or even poor lifestyle choices such as smoking. You may start to notice sun spots, uneven texture/tone, and loose skin. Here at MD Aesthetica we offer some of the most advanced cutting-edge treatment for this condition. Typically for a patient we will either recommend a Brightening Hand Peel, ResurFX, IPL Photofacial, or Radiesse.
Brightening Hand Peel
For mild-moderate photo-aging of hands – Reduces the appearance of dark spots, fine lines, small scars and coarse wrinkles on the hands – Gives immediate skin brightening effect – Improves skin texture and tone. An affordable and good introduction into the world of hand maintenance.
ResurFX for the Hands
For Hand Rejuvenation, it has never been safe to perform ablative laser resurfacing on the hands due to the risks of scarring and skin color changes. But now, with the introduction of ResurFX non-ablative laser resurfacing, you don’t have to put up with the problem any longer! MD Aesthetica is able to offer skin rejuvenation techniques that are most commonly used on the hands to remove aging changes such as pigment, sun spots, age spots, rough dry or crepey skin, wrinkles and other aging changes from the aging skin on the hand.
Non-ablative ResurFX Laser Skin Resurfacing clears and rejuvenates damaged, discolored and uneven skin as well as lines and wrinkles. This laser uses controlled thermal injury to trigger wound-healing, which wakes everything up by realizing an abundance of growth factors to regenerate the skin, without traumatizing it. The laser removes the epidermis and upper dermis triggering the body’s natural healing process which stimulates the growth of healthy new skin. It is a targeted laser treatment meaning it works on your problem areas, leaving the rest of your skin untouched.
Rejuvenating your hands can be easy with our ResurFX laser as it works by taking away a fraction of the top layer of the skin and stimulates new skin growth, revealing more youthful hands. There may be some redness, heat and tightness to the skin following treatment, but this is short-lived, lasting an average of a day or two and not compromising movement. The best results are seen with a course of 5 -6 treatments, approximately six weeks apart with an annual freshener if required. ResurFX can be used on most skin types.
IPL for the Hands
Intense pulsed light systems, or IPL, are ideal for treating aging hands. Hands often develop an assortment of red and brown discolorations called liver spots, and are affected by thinning, sagging skin caused by a reduction in collagen and elastin production. An IPL treatment at MD Aesthetica can treat all of these problems simultaneously. The energy of the IPL is absorbed by the pigmented areas on the skin, causing them to break apart and slowly vanish. The energy of the IPL also encourages the skin to produce more collagen and elastin, resulting in a more youthful-looking texture.
IPL therapy uses high-energy light similar to lasers. However, a laser emits a pulse of light that is one wavelength. IPL emits a broad range of light wavelengths of light, allowing various skin pigments to absorb the light effectively. A single IPL treatment can treat brown, red, and purple discolorations on the skin while simultaneously promoting collagen formation and rejuvenation of the skin. The wide range of wavelengths also allows the treatment to be precisely customized for each individual’s natural skin color as well as the problem being treated.
Radiesse Hand Rejuvenation
Radiesse injections immediately re-plump and replenish volume to the back of the hands to provide a supple and youthful appearance instantly. Placed beneath the skin, Radiesse raises the skin level so that tendons, joints and veins lose their prominence. Radiesse provides instant and durable long lasting results.
Because Radiesse provides a scaffolding for collagen-building, the body’s own collagen interweaving into this structure keeps the skin feeling softly natural and smooth.
