Hand Rejuvenation in Los Altos, CA
As with any other part of the body, the hands show characteristic signs of aging over time, such as sunspots, age spots, wrinkling and skin laxity. Loss of volume and thinning skin can also make veins and bones more visible, prematurely aging the appearance of the hands. At Mittelman Plastic Surgery in Los Altos, board-certified facial plastic surgeon Harry Mittelman, MD, uses a powerful and effective fractional CO2 laser to resurface the hands of patients from San Jose, Palo Alto and the surrounding communities of California. Laser skin resurfacing can improve the appearance of discoloration, skin laxity and uneven tone and even renew once plentiful collagen fibers within the outermost layers of aging hand skin.
Are You Interested In Rejuvenating Your Hands In Order To Make Them Look Much Younger?
The aging process is an inevitable experience that many people wish to delay for as long as possible. The sometimes unattractive results of aging lead to emotional fear when signs of the aging process are visible to both ourselves and others around us. Aside from the face, the hands are one of the most visible parts of the body, and the hands often show tell-tale signs of aging before anywhere else. For this very reason, treatments that restore a more youthful appearance to the hands are becoming one of the most sought-after cosmetic procedures. As the demand for hand rejuvenation has risen, so have the methods cosmetic surgeons use to achieve it.
Am I A Good Candidate For Hand Rejuvenation?
Hand rejuvenation is not only an ideal way to improve the overall appearance of aging hands, but it also serves as a wonderful complement to other anti-aging efforts. This procedure works for people who want to correct any combination of the following cosmetic concerns on their hands:
- Freckles and other signs of discoloration
- Thin, sunken skin
- Enlarged pores
- Crepey skin texture
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Protruding veins and tendons
CO2 Laser Hand Rejuvenation
If your hands have prominent age spots or other unwanted imperfections, Dr. Mittelman will use a CO2 laser to resurface the skin on your hands and remove damaged cells. Once the desired treatment area has been firmly established, the doctor will cleanse your hands and use his keen aesthetic eye to evenly pass the laser over the treatment site. The laser will slough off the outermost layers of skin on the hands, revealing fresh, healthy skin cells underneath. As the body goes into its natural repair mode, the new skin cells will produce a healthy, new layer of skin that has fewer fine lines, wrinkles, age spots and other age-related imperfections.
Are You Curious Why Hands Show Signs Of Aging Before So Many Other Parts Of The Body?
In addition to the face, the hands are one of the first areas to reveal your true age because they’re exposed to constant sunlight and other environmental elements over the years. The hands are more likely to take on an aged appearance because unlike the face, the hands tend to go unprotected from repeated sun exposure. This repeated exposure can lead to discoloration, dangerous growths and an overall loss of the volume that gives hands a supple, more youthful appearance.
How Much Does CO2 Laser Hand Rejuvenation Cost in San Jose?
The majority of insurance companies consider hand rejuvenation to be an elective procedure, therefore, most policies do not extend benefits for CO2 laser hand rejuvenation.
