You’ve done a fantastic job taking care of your face, so don’t let your hands be the tell-tale sign of your age. Your hands are often exposed to sun damage more often than any other part of your body. Sun beats through the windshield when you’re driving, they’re exposed when you’re participating in outdoor activities, and often sunscreen is washed off when washing hands when it is remembered. If they’re exposed to sun damage, it’s no surprise that they’re exposed to attention from others as well. Fortunately, there are several things you can do to help your hands along.
IPL Photofacial treatments to the top of your hands are not uncommon. In fact, we do these quick spot treatments quite often. Intense pulsed light penetrates the skin to eliminate red and brown spots. It usually takes several treatments to achieve optimal results, but the outcome is worth it.
Radiesse® is a dermal filler that can be utilized for more than just facial volume. It has recently been FDA-approved for treatment in the hands as well. Not only can sun damage the color in your hands leading to hyperpigmentation, but you also lose volume in them as you age. Radiesse restores that lost volume, and your results can last up to a year.
Not interested in getting a treatment done? Here’s a pro-tip: dispense your desired amount of all of your facial products to the back of your hand before applying it to your face. Don’t wash off anything left on your hand. Rub the tops of both of your hands together. This means none of your products are going to waste, and you’re combating more than just your facial skin concerns.
