Like your face, your hands are quick to show the signs of aging. Hands may develop wrinkles and age spots or become thinner and bonier due to aging, sun exposure, and collagen loss. At Skin Physicians & Surgeons, we offer MiXto SX® Microfractional CO2 Laser and RADIESSE® treatments to rejuvenate your hands and reduce the signs of aging.
Signs of Aging on the Hands
Your hands can show various signs of aging including age spots, volume loss, wrinkles, and extreme dryness. Age spots, also called sun spots, are caused by prolonged sun exposure and commonly show up on older hands due to having more years of sun exposure. The skin on the back of the hands can become thin and crepey due to collagen loss. Dry, scaly skin is another sign of collagen loss. Wrinkles and fine lines may start to form, further contributing to an aged appearance.
MiXto SX® Microfractional CO2 Laser Treatment
The MiXto SX® Microfractional CO2 Laser is a new advancement in skin resurfacing that can rejuvenate aged skin on the hands. This laser uses fractional technology to administer a tightly focused laser beam in four quadrants with a matrix pattern. The rapid delivery of light provides uniform tissue ablation, immediately causing the skin tissue to tighten. This new technology also stimulates collagen production, which continues to improve the appearance of the skin over the six to twelve weeks following treatment. A single treatment with the MiXto SX® Microfractional CO2 Laser can eliminate sun spots, soften wrinkles, and minimize pores. Treatment lasts between thirty and sixty minutes and presents little discomfort and minimal downtime.
RADIESSE® is a dermal filler that can fill in deep wrinkles in the hands. The aqueous gel is filled with calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres that stimulate collagen production. When injected into the skin, RADIESSE® restores volume for immediate and long-term anti-aging solutions. Like the MiXto SX® Microfractional CO2 Laser, RADIESSE® stimulates collagen production for continual improvement in skin quality over the weeks and months after treatment. Treatment with RADIESSE® is performed in-office and takes between twenty and thirty minutes.
Treatments with the MiXto SX® Microfractional CO2 Laser and RADIESSE® can rejuvenate your hands to restore a more youthful appearance. To schedule your consultation today, please call us at 909-981-8929 or fill out our online contact form.
