Ageing hands result in pigment disorders (often referred to as liver spots). The skin becomes thin and dry. The hypodermis will lose a substantial amount of fat causing the skin to crease, sag and show superficial veins, resulting in the hands looking gaunt.
Hand rejuvenation uses a combination of techniques including:
- The removal of dark spots using pigment lasers, peels or liquid nitrogen cryotherapy.
- Hyaluronic acid fillers to ‘fill’ the backs of the hands compensate for fat loss and fade visible blood vessels.
- Countering the thinning of the skin and the deterioration in its texture using mesotherapy and/or fractional CO2 laser.
