Because the hands can show signs of aging, coupled with our hands being on display all the time moresp perhaps than any other part of the body, an increasingly popular form of treatment is hand rejuvenation.
As we age, the already-thin layer of skin and collagen on the hands loses volume, resulting in visible veins, tendons and bones. Hand rejuvenation seeks to reverse these effects by restoring volume underneath the skin, as well as resurfacing the skin to correct age spots or other blemishes.
We know that no two pairs of hands are alike, so Dr Kersh and the Team at 23MD approach hand rejuvenation on a case-by-case basis, giving your hands the individual, personalized care they deserve.
In order to give your hands the treatment they deserve, we will likely use dermal fillers in combination with laser resurfacing. This way we can restore your skin’s volume while also removing age-related blemishes.

In order to give the hands proper, natural-looking volume, Dr Kersh may use one or several dermal fillers. These are injected under the skin into the collagen layer to mimic the natural collagen of the body.

If your hands have developed age spots or other superficial blemishes, your practitioner may use IPL laser resurfacing to remove the damaged cells. After firmly establishing the treatment area, your hand will be thoroughly cleansed. The laser is then applied evenly and expertly. This removes the outermost layer of skin on the hands, leaving only the healthy cells underneath. These can then regenerate a new layer of skin, reducing the signs of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots and other age-related blemishes.
