Turn back the clock on aged hands What causes the appearance of aged hands?

The appearance of aged hands is often multifactorial, including:

  • Sun-damage and irregular pigmentation
    • Most of us are exposed to more than our fair share of sun. Overtime, this sun damage causes the increase in sunspots, freckles and actinic damage.
    • This can be treated with one of our advanced lasers or our IPL therapy. This removes abnormal pigment and resurfaces tired wrinkled skin.
  • Loss of volume
    • Ageing causes loss of the thin fat just under the skins dermal layers (i.e. subcutaneous fat). This causes veins and bones of the hand to become more prominent.
    • Plumping this area with dermal fillers replaces lost volume, restoring the hands to their once youthful appearance.
  • Skin laxity and loss of collagen
    • Loss of collagen and elastin fibres as we age causes fine lines and wrinkles to appear on the backs of hands.
    • Fractional laser resurfacing, skin boosters, collagen stimulating injections or radio-frequency skin tightening are all excellent treatments to stimulate regeneration and tightening of this area.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the options for resurfacing of the backs of the hands?

The options for resurfacing the backs of the hands include:

  1. Fractional non-ablative laser. We use a variety of fractional lasers (including Fraxel) to tone and resurface the skin on the back of the hands. Contour Clinics use wavelengths from 1540 to 1927 depending on your individual concerns and treatment goals. Your expert Cosmetic Physician will advice on the laser right for you during your complimentary consultation.
  2. Q-switch Nd:YAG laser. This is far less aggressive than fractionated lasers. They have the added benefit of smoothing pigment, while toning and rejuvenating hand skin. They are very well tolerated with no downtime.
  3. Chemical peels. These range from gentle toning vs. aggressive skin resurfacing. These are a popular treatment at Contour Clinics.

How does laser work to resurface the skin of the hands?

Fractional lasers deliver a laser beam that is divided (fractionated) into thousands of microscopic columns. These penetrate deep into the dermis.

This creates a controlled micro-damage to the epidermis and dermis in the treated area, while leaving the healthy unaffected surrounding tissue that helps heal the microscopic columns created by the laser beams.

This micro trauma creates an intensive collagen stimulating and remodelling process that resurfaces skin, leaving it looking 10-15 years younger.

What is the recovery time for hand resurfacing lasers?

This varies from laser to laser.

  • The most aggressive fractional non-ablative laser may leave the backs of hands with a mild-moderate sunburn like appearance for 3-5 days.
  • Q-switch Nd:YAG laser leaves the hands red for only a few hours post treatment. Often there is no downtime or redness whatsoever.

 

Does laser on the back of the hands hurt?

Most of our patients find there is minimal discomfort from lasers in this part of the body.

We use topical numbing cream prior to treatment to improve your comfort.

For all of our treatments we have the option of nitrous gas (happy gas) to help improve the comfort of treatment.

What causes age spots and pigmentation on the hands?

The hands are seldom protected from sunlight and harsh environmental factors.

Pigmentation is common with age. Sun exposure causes activation of our pigment producing cells (melanocytes), causing an overproduction of melanin. This manifests as an irregular pigmentation on the skins surface.

Age spots are due to pigment (melanin) collecting in one spot. They are also known as liver spots or solar lentigines.

How can pigmentation be removed from the backs of hands?

This depends on your underlying skin type:

  1. Lighter skin types (Caucasian/Celtic/Northern European) benefit most from intense pulsed light. This smooths irregular pigment in 1-3 sessions spaced 1 month apart with minimal downtime.
  2. Darker skin types (Asian/Mediterranean etc.) require either a long pulse Nd:YAG or Q-Switch laser to safely treat pigment. Most patients require 2-3 sessions spaced 1 month apart.

Both options are $350 per session.

How does IPL work to remove pigment from the hands?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) works by delivering light delivered at a specific power and wavelength to the treatment area. At specific wavelengths the light is selectively absorbed by pigmented structures within the skin. This causes a breaking up and ‘lifting’ of pigment, that then flakes off in the days following treatment. This occurs while leaving the surrounding skin structures unharmed.

What can you expect after laser pigmentation removal from the hands?

After your laser pigmentation removal you can expect some mild redness on the backs of your hands. This will be similar to a mild sunburn.

You can return to your daily routine immediately after treatment, but we ask that you refrain from sun exposure for 2 weeks post treatment.

Is laser treatment of pigmentation safe?

Yes. This is a very safe treatment. All lasers used in pigmentation removal at Contour Clinics have been FDA and TGA approved for this indication.

All of our laser practitioners are extensively trained and certified in all aspects of laser treatment and laser safety.
