Are Your Hands Suffering from Summer?

You may shade your face and cover your body in clothing or sunscreen, but your hands are almost always exposed to the Arizona sun. The UV rays, heat and constant hand washing all take their toll on your skin and hands during the summer. By the end of August, your hands may look years older than they did back in the spring. Rejuvenate your hands and make them appear years younger with one of our cosmetic hand treatments at Arcadia Wellness Center in Phoenix.

Hand Laser Treatments

The skin on your hands is constantly exposed to UV rays that can cause sun damage. The majority of skin aging is due to UV rays, including wrinkles and age spots that are common problems on the hands. If you have noticed that your hands have new brown spots or the skin is losing its elasticity, laser treatments may be the solution.

Both intense pulsed light (IPL) and laser skin resurfacing treatments can be beneficial for rejuvenating the skin on the hands. IPL laser treatments, also called photo facial, are excellent for removing pigmentation on the skin such as age or brown spots. IPL treatments can also improve the texture of the skin for a more youthful appearance. Laser skin resurfacing can stimulate collagen production to reduce wrinkles and improve skin density.

Hand Filler Injections

Sun exposure can accelerate the skin aging process, including the skin on your hands. If you notice that your hands look older with visible veins and a boney or wrinkled appearance, filler infections are a quick solution. Adding dermal fillers under the skin on the backs of your hands can plump the skin for a smoother, more youthful appearance. The results are usually immediate and can last for several months or longer, depending on the filler used.

If summer was rough on your hands or aging is taking its toll, come see us at Arcadia Wellness Center in Phoenix. Hand rejuvenation treatments can restore a softer, more youthful appearance to your hands. Call today to schedule your appointment.
