How to have young-looking hands again

One of the best ways to tell a woman’s age is to look at her hands. As we age, our hands lose their youthful plumpness and begin to look bony and fragile. Veins, tendons and joints often protrude, and skin texture becomes thin and translucent. Age spots are common.

Combating the aging process takes more than just a hand cream with sunscreen. The latest anti-aging medical advancements in hand rejuvenation can make a dramatic improvement.

For serious bulging veins in the hands, patients might choose microphlebectomy, a minimally invasive procedure where unsightly veins are removed through tiny incisions. The procedure usually takes less than an hour and the recovery time is rapid. Patients experience little to no scarring with excellent clinical and cosmetic results.

To restore volume to older hands, a cosmetic filler, such as Radiesse, can be injected to give the hands plumpness. Another benefit is the filler can conceal protruding tendons.

“Radiesse immediately plumps up and replenishes volume to the back of the hands to provide a supple and youthful appearance,” says Dr. John Chuback, medical director of Chuback Medical Group in Paramus. “Placed beneath the skin, Radiesse raises the skin level so that tendons and joints lose their prominence.”

The key to Radiesse’s success, Chuback says, is that it provides a scaffold for collagen building. The body’s own collagen interweaves into this structure, which makes the skin feel soft, natural and smooth – and look younger.

Applying Radiesse for hand rejuvenation is a simple and easy in-office procedure that usually takes 30 minutes. Patients can resume their normal daily activities without any downtime. Results are seen immediately and can last up to a year. Repeat injections are usually needed to maintain optimal corrections.

Lastly, patients can even out their skin tone by removing brown spots that have accumulated over many years. Dr. Jaime Bastidas, a board-certified plastic surgeon at Chuback Medical Group, uses the PicoSure Laser to target hyperpigmented areas due to sun damage.

Unlike expensive skin care serums and moisturizers, PicoSure’s laser light reaches deep below the surface of the skin causing the brown spots to fade away. Depending on your skin type, multiple sessions may be recommended to achieve the best results. PicoSure laser skin treatments are not considered painful, but a cooling cream is available to help alleviate discomfort during the procedure. After treatment, some redness and minor swelling is common, but will resolve rapidly. Most people can resume their regular activities immediately following treatment.

Treatments with Microphlebectomy, Radiesse and PicoSure are considered an elective procedure and not covered by insurance. The staff at Chuback Medical Group will consult with prospective patients and discuss payment options for the procedure. For more information, call 201-693-4847 or visit chubackmedical.com.
