Laser skin resurfacing
Lasers give your doctor precise control to gently remove the damaged skin layer by layer in a rapid bloodless fashion. Laser hand rejuvenation is performed with local anesthesia. Following recovery, your “age” spots disappear to reveal smooth, fresher-looking hands. More about laser resurfacing.
Microdermabrasion is a superficial skin polishing that improves the appearance of the aging skin. The results are immediate. Maintenance treatments are required. More about microdermabrasion.
Depending on your skin type and the desired results, your physician may recommend a superficial, medium or deep chemical peel. Your surgeon will select the proper chemical or mix of chemicals (glycolic acid, Jessner, TCA or trichloroacetic acid or carbolic acid). More about chemical peel.
Retin-A and glycolic acid derivatives
Topical applications of Retin-A and glycolic acid derivatives can repair sun-damaged skin and cause “age” spots to fade. Moreover, they stimulate the production of collagen.
Note that, no matter which of the above cosmetic procedures are chosen, your hands will need to be protected from future sun damage by regular use of sun protection. Consistent use of sunscreens will significantly prolong your improvements. Dermaceutical medical grade serums provide additional anti-aging support.
