Hand rejuvenation: Take time off your hands
We spend a lot of time and effort fighting the signs of aging on our faces, but we often forget another highly visible, delicate area: the backs of our hands. Look in the mirror. Now hold the backs of your hands up at the sides of your face. Do your face and hands appear to belong to two different people? A woman and maybe her grandmother? Then it’s time to take action and consider some of the many treatment options available for safe and effective hand rejuvenation.
Dermal Fillers: Fewer wrinkles and fresh, plumper skin
Wrinkles are more than skin deep. When we lose volume below the skin's surface, the top layers of skin are unsupported and begin to wrinkle or get a crepey appearance. The same loss of tissue that thins our lips and causes hollows under the eyes impacts the backs of our hands.
Dermal fillers can be used on the backs of hands to support the skin and create a smoother appearance. These fillers are injectable gels that build volume under the skin to smooth the upper, visible layers. During hand rejuvenation, they are carefully injected into the backs of the hands to smooth skin and hide veins and tendons. Dermal fillers are made with natural ingredients such as calcium and hyaluronic acid, offering long-lasting results.
Forever Young BBL™ for hand rejuvenation
Forever Young BBL™ laser skin treatment, or broadband light treatment, effectively decreases or eliminates many signs of skin aging. BBL therapy stimulates a resurfacing of the skin with new, fresh cells to balance tone and make skin appear more even.
Any area that receives a lot of sun exposure, such as hands, arms, face, neck, chest and shoulders, is a good candidate for improvement with BBL. Because BBL is non-invasive and non-ablative, you have zero downtime or recovery with amazing results!

PicoSure® Skin offers impressive results treating challenging pigment conditions. The particles that form age spots and uneven skin tone are dispersed using a highly targeted, low-heat energy that prevents damage to the surrounding cells.
PicoSure® Skin can also improve wrinkles and age lines by promoting collagen and elastin production in the deeper layers of the skin. These rebuilt structures plump skin at the surface for a smoother, firmer appearance, adding a layer of tissue that can camouflage veins, tendons and joints. The new collagen and elastin structures keep rebuilding for months before the full effect is reached, offering ongoing, long-lasting results. Non-ablative PicoSure® Skin treatment is safe for all skin tones and skin types and is safe even the delicate skin on the backs of our hands.
Caring for your hands after treatment
Since it isn’t practical to wear gloves 24/7, it’s important after you have had hand rejuvenation therapies to take steps to protect your hands from the elements that speed the aging process. When you apply daily sunscreen to your face, take an extra few seconds to apply it to the back of your hands. Use a deep moisturizer at night and a non-drying soap for hand washing. We can also recommend high-quality sunscreen and other skin care products that will help maintain your new, even skin tone and keep skin plumped and happy throughout the day.
If your hands are giving away your age (or even adding a few years), fight back with hand rejuvenation. Which of these treatments is right for you? Contact Integrative Wellness today to schedule your consultation and we'll create a treatment program that will give you smoother, younger-looking hands with lasting, beautiful results.
