Many times, women who were diligent about their beauty care regimen in their younger years, find that they neglected an area of the body that prominently displays their age: their hands. As women age, muscle diminishes, reducing the plump appearance of youthful hands. Due to hormonal changes, the skin also thins and results in an almost skeletal hand, where the bones, veins and tendons are prominent.
The growing trend among high-flying ladies is an elegance-restoring hand lift, which can be complemented by other cosmetic services for a more youthful appearance. Often, a woman’s age-less visage is marred when she places her hands near her face and the contrast becomes evident. If your hands have been overlooked and give away your age, Southwest Plastic Surgery in El Paso offers several age-defying treatments to turn back the time on your hands.
Permanent Hand Lifts
One of the more popular alternatives for hand restorations involves relocating fat from elsewhere on you body, to your hands. It only takes a small amount of material, so even very thin women can have this procedure. Because the fat is taken from your own body, there’s no risk of reaction and the results are permanent.
This minimally invasive procedure uses a fat graft, taken from areas like your thighs or tummy, that’s the expertly deposited in tiny droplets through a miniscule tube, into the thinning areas of your hand. Your treatment culminates in more natural looking, youthful hands. Unlike traditional hand lift fillers, future treatments aren’t necessary to maintain the plump appearance.
Recently approved by the FDA for hands, Radiesse is a cosmetic filler that allows skillful recontouring of the hand tissue. With strategic injections, the tissue that lies along the bony surface of your hands becomes more voluminous and supple, hiding the skeletal appearance that ages you.
Radiesse is completely non-toxic, being derived from calcium and phosphate ions, which are naturally found in human bone. The results are also instantaneous. You can see the obvious difference during your hand lift, when comparing your treated hand with the one that has not yet been treated.
Chemical Peels, Laser Rejuvenation
Enhance the results of your hand lift with additional cosmetic options such as chemical peels and laser rejuvenation. With a chemical peel, newer, younger skin is revealed, improving the wrinkle-free appearance of your hands. Minor flaws, fine lines and age spots can be diminished with laser rejuvenation to complete your hand’s age-defying transformation.
Your hands are constantly on display throughout the day, whether they’re busy with mundane tasks or gently wrapped around a cup of coffee as you chat with friends.
