As time goes by, changes in your body composition, skin aging and unprotected sun exposure can have a significant impact on the appearance of your hands. If your hands have taken on a sallow appearance or if you are struggling with the unsightly appearance of dark spots, there are different methods that Dr. Otis Allen might present.

Hyaluronic acid can be used as a dermal filler to plump and thicken the appearance of sallow hands. This dermal filler solution has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use as dermal fillers. This is a highly effective, short-term method for restoring the youthful appearance of your hands. In time, the hyaluronic acid will safely be absorbed by your body.

Dark spots on the back of your hands can be visually reduced by using a skin-brightening cream and stimulating exfoliation in the dermis. This might include a skin cream with prescription-grade Retin-A or multiple microdermabrasion treatments.

More significant signs of premature aging on the hands might call for more extensive treatments such as a chemical Peel, sclerotherapy, or a laser skin resurfacing.

If you live in the Bloomington, Illinois, area and you are struggling with the appearance of premature aging on your hands, you should call 309.827.3881 to set up a consultation at Institute for Plastic Surgery.
