"I can tell how old she is by looking at her hands."
For this reason, hand treatments at Cosmetic Skin and Laser Center have become very popular in the past 10 years. For patients who just have some age spots on the hands, we generally recommend the Intense Pulse Light (IPL) to remove and lighten the sun damage. If a patient is complaining of the crepe-paper like skin on the hands, then the FX laser is the answer.
Although there's a few days of downtime after the FX laser (hands very red and a required layer of vaseline for 5 days), the skin becomes much smoother within about a week. Probably our most popular treatment for hands is the dermal fillers like Radiesse. Radiesse can be injected into the hands and minimize the protruding veins and boney looking hands. These results are instant and the results last about a year!
