Hand rejuvenation involves a set of procedures to make the hands appear less aged, especially on their back sides. One of tell tale signs of aging are the hands. Someone can look young and rested based on their face, but if the hands are wrinkled, with sun spots, and skeletonized, the age of the person becomes obvious. The methods I use for hand rejuvenation is a combination of TCA 35% peel to get rid of the sun spots and wrinkles on the skin, and fat transfer to the areas between knuckles and back of the hand to smooth it out.
Recovery after hand rejuvenation
Recovery is minimal. Your hands might be swollen for a few days, and the skin on the back will peel over the next week. There is not much pain or discomfort. You can go back to normal activity almost immediately.
