Your face looks 20, your hands not so much. Luckily, now you can do something about it! Dana Elise, co-owner of Laser Solutions in Beverly Hills, California, fills us in on 3 treatments that’ll have your hands looking young in no time.
Photofacial Rejuvenation IPL
This can take 3-5 sessions and should be done 3 weeks apart. Each session lasts about 45 minutes.
You will see a 35% improvement after the 1st session, and this treatment can take about 10 years off.
This hand facial targets hyperpigmentation (brown sun spots). The spots initially get darker by 1-3 shades, but it sheds away in 6-8 days.
The cost is $400 per session.
A foam solution is injected into the veins resulting in hands that will look flat, even, and young again.
Your hand is bandaged and left on overnight. Heavy duty exercise or anything that stimulates the blood to circulation such as going to the jacuzzi or massages is not permitted for 2 days, but walking is encouraged.
The cost is $375 for 15 mins.
Juvederm or Restalyne
These popular facial fillers are being used for hands now. They’re especially great for anyone that has the lumpy hand look.
The cost for Juvederm Ultra Plus is $750 for the first syringe and $700 thereafter.
The cost for Restalyne is $650 for the first syringe and $600 thereafter.
