Beauty is in the Details
Though they are often ignored, your hands are one of your most important body parts. They’ve held your children, helped you through work, and allowed you to accomplish great things. But with that much responsibility, your hands are also one of the first areas to show visible signs of aging.
As you age, the loss of subcutaneous fat and volume in the hands can cause veins and tendons to become accentuated, leading to a hollowed look. Additionally, your hands are often the least protected from the elements. Sun damage, extreme weather, and perpetual dryness can speed and intensify the development of fine lines and deeper wrinkles. Using a combination of techniques, Dr. Bekanich has developed a treatment plan that can help rejuvenate your hands and restore a smooth, youthful appearance.
Combination Treatment for Enhanced Results
Dr. Bekanich uses a two-tiered approach to hand rejuvenation. By addressing both surface issues, such as wrinkles or age spots, and volume loss, Dr. Bekanich is able to provide you with smoother, younger-looking hands.
Putting Fat to Good Use
Through fat grafting, Dr. Bekanich is able to use your own fat to add volume to your hands. This process begins with Dr. Bekanich using liposuction techniques to “harvest” fat from a problem area on your body, typically the abdomen, thighs, or hips. The fat is then purified and skillfully injected into the areas of your hands that need it most until the desired results are achieved. Fat is an ideal “filler” for hand rejuvenation as it provides safe, long-lasting results.
Fat grafting can help:
- Make tendons and veins less prominent
- Fill in deeper-set wrinkles
- Improve the appearance of thin or “crepey” skin
- Leave your skin looking healthy and full
Smooth, Bright, Radiant
Volume loss is not the only contributing factor to aging hands. To treat surface concerns, Dr. Bekanich uses TCA (trichloracetic acid) chemical peels. By prompting the body to shed damaged layers of skin, TCA peels effectively:
- Reduce appearance of age and sun spots
- Even out skin texture and tone
- Diminish fine lines
- Improve mild scars
TCA chemical peels are considered to be “medium” chemical peels, meaning you can experience dramatic results without the downtime associated with deeper peels. Because treatment is quick and comfortable, TCA peels are a perfect option for hand rejuvenation.
