DENVER — Plastic surgeons in the metro area are very busy lifting faces and tucking tummies. But now there’s an increased demand for yet another area.
Many women feel that tired-looking hands can say a lot about you, especially if they detract from a youthful face.
Aging and harsh elements can wrinkle the skin on your hands. Doctor Tahl Humes is seeing a demand for hand rejuvenation at her Cherry Creek practice Vitahl.
According to Dr. Humes, it doesn’t matter whether you are male or female, signs of wear and tear on your hands can begin around age 30.
“You’ll hear women say some guy told me that they noticed I was in my 30’s because of my hands,” said Humes.
One treatment used to fill-out wrinkling hands is called Juvederm. It is injected between the bones to create a smoother appearance.
Another option is Sculptra, which actually stimulates collagen production in your hands, plumping them out.
Lasers are also used to resurface skin but are not advised for those with darker complexions.
Dr. Humes warns that it’s important to start protecting the skin on our hands in your 20s by using sunblock and plenty of moisturizers.
