How old do your hands look? According to Vogue, this is a growing concern for many. After all, it doesn’t make sense to prevent wrinkles on your face and ignore your hands. Daily sunscreen is a great place to start.

If your hands do show some damage, fortunately, there’s a fix for that. Many doctors offer cosmetic treatments that can help repair and refresh the appearance of hands. Here are three common hand rejuvenation treatments, and some amazing before-and-after photos to show off the results.

 

Radiesse

Radiesse is a semi-permanent injectable filler used to correct wrinkles and plump up areas of thinning skin, including the backs of the hands.

“Plumping the skin in this area helps to disguise the tendons and blood vessels that become more visible with time and age and weight loss,” said Dr. Grant Stevens, a Los Angeles plastic surgeon, in a RealSelf Q&A. “Often a patient’s hands and arms look much older than their face, and we strive to have you looking like one youthful whole person.”

Fat transfer

Fat transfer is the process of taking fat from one area of the body and injecting it into another to boost volume.

“Fat transfer for wrinkled hands is something I have done for 35 years and works well for the top of the hand,” said Dr. Toby Mayer, a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, in a RealSelf Q&A. “It does not work well for fingers in that you do do not want sausage-looking fingers.”

Fraxel laser treatment

Fraxel lasers aid in correcting aging, wrinkled and sun-damaged skin.

“If you have generalized pigmentation on the hands with great surface irregularities, then the Fraxel will give excellent results,” said Dr. Michele Green, a New York dermatologist, in a RealSelf Q&A. “If there are discrete pigmented spots, then the YAG laser may be more effective for you.”
