Turning Back The Hands Of Time
Like the rest of our bodies, our hands show signs of aging that may include brown spots, thinning skin, wrinkles, and large veins. There are a few simple procedures that can make your hands match your new youthful appearance. A few minor non-invasive procedures can be done successfully with impressive results.
Brown spots on the hands can be treated topically with a daily application of hydroquinone cream or select proprietary creams available at Boise Image. In addition, fine wrinkles and pigmentation may benefit from a laser skin treatment. One of the most effective and convenient procedures is the use of ELOS. This form of photo-rejuvenation will smooth color irregularities and evens skin tone. Daily use of a good hand cream containing glycolic acid, Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Beta-carotene is recommended. It is imperative to use Sunscreen on your hands, just as you do on your face and neck. We recommend SPF30+ with Zinc 5% or higher.
With age and sun damage, the skin of the hands may also begin to atrophy, leaving hands with a bony appearance. A treatment with an intradermal filler can soften wrinkles, cover prominent veins and tendons, and disguise enlarged joints on the hands. It restores the soft tissue that is lost with age or disease and helps fill out grooves between the bones of the hand, as well as help improve the texture of the skin.
