*Rejuvenate Your Hands with the Combined Power of IPL and Radiesse®!
The thin, delicate skin on the back of the hands is probably the most exposed area of the body, and therefore it should come as no surprise that the hands can betray our age even more quickly than the face. Aging hands generally suffer from two very distinct problems: constant sun exposure leads to sun spots, age spots, and other pigmentation irregularities, while loss of collagen leads to a bony, thin appearance with visible veins and tendons. Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, lead plastic surgeons at Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery, offer hand rejuvenation treatment.*
Board Certified plastic surgeons Drs. Burton and Reps Sundin understand that maintaining truly beautiful hands means erasing sun damage while simultaneously replacing collagen lost through the natural aging process. In order to address both these problems at their source, Drs. Sundin have developed a hand rejuvenation treatment that combines the healing energy of light with next-generation collagen-based dermal fillers. This non-surgical, minimally-invasive treatment can be completed in a simple, quick office visit without the need for anesthesia or recovery time.*
Our Hand Rejuvenation Procedure
Our unique hand rejuvenation treatment utilizes a personally-tailored combination of powerful light-based energy—IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light—and the advanced collagen-based injectable Radiesse®. *
Intense Pulsed Light
- Reduces “photoaging”: sun spots, age spots, hyperpigmentation, darkening skin, and irregular skin tone and texture*
IPL, now considered the “gold standard” in the treatment of common skin irregularities caused by sun exposure, works by directing a precisely-calibrated, non-ablative (non-damaging) pulses of multi-wavelength light energy deep into the dermis, or inner layer of skin. While the outer layer of skin remains unaffected and cool (helped by the application of a cooling gel), the light energy heats the dermis and stimulates the skin to remodel existing collagen strands, as well as build new collagen, to reduce pigmentation irregularities and create smooth, even, beautiful skin on the back of the hands.*
- Restores lost volume, reduces lines and wrinkles, and reduces the bony, thin, translucent appearance*
Radiesse® is the only injectable dermal filler approved by the FDA for use on the hands. This advanced filler offers incredible short- and long-term benefits: by restoring natural collagen levels, wrinkles are filled in and the skin becomes visibly plumper, fuller, and smoother, while at the same time, Radiesse® actually sparks the body’s natural production of new collagen strands, ensuring supple, soft, and youthful hands for up to a year. Individual results may vary.*
This hand rejuvenation treatment is completely non-surgical and minimally-invasive. It can be easily completed in a quick office visit, usually in less than 30 minutes, making it ideal for scheduling during your lunch break or on your way home from work. Side effects are minimal and temporary, and most patients can return to all normal activities immediately. Preliminary results may be visible right away, but more optimal results may become apparent several weeks after the treatment as the body begins to develop new collagen. Most patients will enjoy naturally beautiful, youthful hands for up to a year after treatment. Individual results may vary.*
