You use them every day! You wash them multiple times a day, they are exposed to sun all year around not by choice, they work hard and they are often the second thing (first is the face/eyes) people notice when they meet you for the first time! Your hands. Men and women often feel that the look and the health of their hands age them! Give your hands a bit of TLC and take years off your first … and second … and third impressions!
Just like with your face, buttocks, and feet, as you age, your hands lose youthful volume. Natural fat transfer procedures that are often only associates with adding volume to the face and buttocks can also be used to restore volume and plump up hands. Dr. Guanciale offers the cosmetic plastic surgery procedure, fat grafting with the use of the Adivive LipoKit system to effectively remove your own fat from one area of your body and target your hands to re-inject the natural fat to add volume.
Dark spots created by sun exposure/damage are hard to avoid, but relatively easy to resolve. IPL (intense pulsed light) treatments are quick and not very painful. Destroy the melanin that is creating the spots letting your skin repair itself with new, clear skin to give a more even tone and texture. For a more intense treatment, consider a chemical peel to remove the top layer of skin and extra pigment. Dr. Guanciale offers the cosmetic plastic surgery aesthetic treatments of IPL and chemical peels at varying strengths to ensure the treatments are customized to target your needs.
Moisturizer and sunscreen application daily, following hand washing, and all year around will also aid in the health of the skin. Hydrate with drinking lot of water daily as well … not only your hands will thank you, but your body will too!
