You may be aware of cosmetic surgery procedures for the face, breast, and body, but did you know there are plastic surgery procedures for the hands, too? At our Tallahassee, FL, plastic surgery practice, our board-certified plastic surgeons offer a range of hand rejuvenation procedures, from light-based skin treatments to more complex reconstructive surgeries.
Read on to learn more about some of the most effective procedures for achieving youthful, healthy hands.
Also called an IPL (intense pulsed light) treatment, the photofacial is a light-based procedure that breaks up pigmentation in the hands to create a more evenly pigmented surface. By targeting melanin particles and blood vessels just below the skin, it disintegrates excess red and brown pigmentation. It works wonderfully for addressing common signs of aging on the hands, including:
- Dark spots
- Pigmented areas
- Age spots
- Sun spots
This treatment is quick, requires little to no recovery time, and is safe to use anywhere on the face and body. It also provides a subtle collagen boost to keep your skin smooth and elastic.
Spider Vein Removal
Spider vein removal, also called sclerotherapy, is an injectable treatment that breaks up superficial veins, causing them to fade. If you want to address small red, purple, or bulging veins on your hands (or on other areas of your body, like your legs), this might be the treatment for you. It requires little to no recovery—just a series of quick injections.
Sometimes it’s necessary to use fat grafting, a surgical treatment, to conceal the loss of volume and cover up visible tendons in the hand after treatment. If you are looking to address signs of aging in your hands, this surgical option is available as well.
Whether your hand concerns are purely cosmetic or require the expertise of a reconstructive surgeon, Southeastern Plastic Surgery’s team of board-certified plastic surgeons are ready to help.
