Before and after a hand filler treatment that was performed at Qazi Cosmetic Center in Newport Beach, California.

We do a lot with our hands, from washing the dishes to embracing our loved ones. Have you reached for a handshake and realized that your hands look less youthful than they once did? It happens to everyone!

Our age tends to show in the face and the hands first. While makeup can cover signs of aging in the face, it is more difficult to hide these telltale signs of aging when it comes to hands. 

While many people take great care to maintain a skin care routine for anti-aging, hands are often neglected. The solution is hand rejuvenation.

Celebrities like Demi Moore and Kris Jenner have reportedly gotten the procedure to maintain their youthful glow from head to toe. 

What is Hand Rejuvenation? 

Hand Rejuvenation describes a variety of cosmetic procedures used to reduce signs of aging in the hands, namely wrinkles, dark spots, and volume loss. 

Dr. Qazi specializes in chemical peel treatments and fillers in order to most effectively revitalize your hands. 

Hand anti-aging treatments have been steadily growing in popularity. According to Longevity, a popular website for wellness-related articles, Medspas and cosmetic clinics have seen an 18% increase in inquiries about hand-related treatments. Much of the popularity comes from an increasingly holistic approach to anti-aging procedures. 

The Benefits of Hand Anti-Aging Treatments

You know that phrase, “you never get a second chance to make a first impression?” Well, it’s true, and 55% of a first impression is made by what we see. Hands are highly visible – almost as visible as faces – from handshakes to holding hands on a date to adjusting clothing.

Hands are hard to hide, and it is even harder to hide signs of aging.

Even if you already feel confident having rejuvenated your neck and face, your hands can give away your true age. This is why it is important to approach anti-aging holistically. If areas like the face have already been treated, then attention could be drawn to the untreated areas of the body. 

Our Hands are Important 

According to a recent study in the June Issue of the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons: “Want to know a person’s real age? Just look at their hands.” The study found that participants could accurately guess a person’s age by looking at photos of their hands. 

These signs of aging can easily make a person feel self-conscious. Even highly accomplished celebrities like Madonna have reported feeling uncomfortable with the wrinkles, dark spots, and volume loss on their hands. It has led Madonna to wear fingerless gloves on stage and countless others to avoid holding hands because of insecurity. 

Life is too short not to hold hands! If you feel insecure about signs of aging in your hands, then you owe it to yourself to consider hand rejuvenation.

Hands are important, so restore yours with a variety of safe and non-surgical hand treatments offered by Dr. Qazi at Qazi Cosmetic Clinic in Orange County.

    How to Take Care of Your Hands

    It is very important to protect hands from sun damage by using at least a SPF 50 sunscreen.

    Many people do not think of it, but it is especially important to sunscreen your hands before driving. The time we spend in the car is a common opportunity for excessive sun exposure. 

    Another vital way to keep your hands looking their best is to moisturize after washing hands to prevent dryness and peeling. Especially with the health precautions made necessary by COVID-19, people are washing and using hand sanitizer at much greater frequency. If you are washing more, you should also be moisturizing more.

    One of the best ways to keep your hands both moisturized and clean is to choose a sanitizer with aloe in it to prevent excessive dryness. 

    You can also prevent dryness by staying hydrated. In general, drinking plenty of water is one of the best ways to keep your skin glowing. That includes the skin on your hands. 

    Finally, it is best to avoid activities and substances that can harm and age your hands.

    When washing dishes, it is best to always wear gloves because the hot, soapy water can contribute to premature aging. Because skin gets thinner with age, hot water has greater potential to damage the skin on your hands.

    What to Look For if You Are Considering Hand Rejuvenation in Orange County

    The most common damage to the hands that may necessitate a hand rejuvenation procedure are sun damage, dark spots, volume loss, and wrinkles. These are the primary indicators that allow others to tell your age by your hands. Sun damage alone is one of the major causes of premature aging in the body. 

    What causes wrinkles, dark spots, and loss of volume? 

    According to the National Institute on Aging, Wrinkles are caused by UV damage from the sun, naturally occurring loss of elasticity in the skin, gravity, and certain lifestyle choices like smoking. 

    Dark spots – also called liver spots and age spots – are also caused by sun exposure. They appear most often on the hands, face, arms, back, and feet. While dark spots are harmless and pose no threat to your health, they can be unflattering, make you feel old, and hurt your self esteem.

      Loss of volume in the hands is caused by the atrophying of subcutaneous fat in the hands.

      This loss of fat causes bones, ligaments, and blood vessels to become visible. The skin also naturally thins with age due to the decline in collagen and elastin. These are important proteins found in connective tissues that help tissues retain their shape after stretching and contracting. 

      It is important to remember that genetics primarily determine the speed and extent of age-related changes. However, it can also be influenced by factors like drinking alcohol, smoking, excessive sun exposure, chemical toxin exposure, overwork, and rheumatological disease. 

      We do not always have much control over how we age or how our bodies are affected; however, we can control how we respond to it.

      This is why Qazi Cosmetic Clinic offers a great variety of treatments for the face, hands, and entire body. If you want to change how you look in order to boost your confidence, then Dr. Qazi can help!

      Chemical Peel Treatment For the Hands 

      Chemical peel treatments are a unique procedure that can be utilized for hand rejuvenation as well as facial rejuvenation. Dr. Qazi’s medical-grade chemical peels are exclusive to physicians and can produce much better results than treatments at esthetician-run spas. These customized peels penetrate deep into the dermis and assist with fading wrinkles, dark spots, and discolorations from sun damage. 

      By removing damaged skin cells, chemical peel treatments effectively improve the look and feel of skin by revealing healthier skin underneath.

      This treatment is a great choice for people who do not want to be treated with any needles. The treatment is highly customized to fit your particular needs and to help you achieve your aesthetic goals. 

      What are the Different Kinds of Chemical Peels? 

      There are three different types of chemical peel treatment: superficial peels, medium peels, and deep peels. 

      Superficial peels use a mild acid, like alpha-hydroxy acid, to gently exfoliate. It only works on the outermost layer of skin and does not penetrate any deeper. This is a good option if you only have minor wrinkles and dark spots on your hands. After the treatment is complete, the chemical solution will be carefully removed or neutralized. 

      Medium peels use trichloroacetic or glycolic acid in order to penetrate through the outer layer of the skin. This type of peel is much more effective at removing seriously damaged cells than the superficial peel. Because blue color is often added to trichloroacetic acid, this type of peel is sometimes called a “blue peel.”

        No neutralizing solution is needed in medium peels; instead, the doctor will apply a cold compress or utilize a fan to cool your skin. In some cases, your skin may be tinged a little blue for several days after the procedure. No worries! The color will fade and your skin will be glowing. 

        Deep peels fully penetrate all the way through the middle layer of the skin in order to address the most serious wrinkles and discolorations on the hands and face. Deep peels use phenol or tricholoracetic acid.

        During this procedure, you will be sedated in order to ensure your comfort. Only a board-certified physician like Dr. Qazi is qualified to perform chemical peel treatments. For maximum safety, Dr. Qazi performs deep peels only in 15 minute intervals to limit skin exposure to the acids. 

        After a chemical peel treatment, it is very important to follow Dr. Qazi’s instructions for caring for your skin after the procedure. 

        Fillers For Volume Loss 

        If you have experienced volume loss,  fillers are an ideal solution for hand rejuvenation. 

        Fillers are a great solution for a variety of cosmetic needs, including the hands. Fillers provide immediate volume and correction by filling areas in the hands that have experienced volume loss. The results are remarkable and fulfilling. Just one quick and comfortable procedure can turn back the clock on your hands. 

        What is Radiesse? 

        At Qazi Cosmetic Clinic, Dr. Qazi prefers to use a diluted form of Radiesse by Merz Aesthetics for hand filler procedures. Radiesse is composed of Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CAHA) microspheres. This means that it provides immediate volume and correction in the area of the body where it is injected.

        This product is unique and ideal for hand rejuvenation because it triggers the body to increase collagen production. This uptick in collagen production lasts for several months, which results in a more natural looking and longer lasting filler. 

        Radiesse fillers for the hands last about two years in the body before you will need a second appointment. In order to maintain a youthful glow from head to toe, repeated procedures for hand rejuvenation are recommended. 

        What will my appointment for hand rejuvenation fillers be like? 

        • Dr. Qazi always puts your comfort and safety first. 
        • The price of hand fillers will depend on how much volume loss your hands have experienced and how much filler is needed.
        • Your treatment will be carefully customized to meet your individual needs and to provide you with the most natural-looking results. 
        • In order to reduce the amount of discomfort, Dr. Qazi uses the smallest possible needles for dermal filler procedures. 
        • Fillers are injected slowly and gently under low pressure. This gentle injection technique is designed to prevent any complications. 
        • After injection, it is necessary for Dr. Qazi to massage the hands to ensure that the final contours are smooth and natural in appearance.
        • For best results, you should ice your hands for the rest of the day and avoid strenuous exercise, alcohol, and intense work with the hands for several days. 
        • The entire treatment takes around 30 minutes and is very comfortable. Most patients report that the needles hurt less than their annual flu shot.

        What are Other Cosmetic Uses for Fillers? 

        At Qazi Cosmetic Clinic, Dr. Qazi offers a variety of non-invasive cosmetic solutions in order to meet the needs of Newport Beach residents.

        Dr. Qazi utilizes fillers for non-surgical jawline contouring, to provide a plump look in the cheeks, and for improving hollowness in the eyes. If you have questions about hand rejuvenation or another procedure that uses fillers, please contact Dr. Qazi today. Dr. Qazi offers consultations to answer all your questions and to help you determine which cosmetic procedure would be right for you. 

        Dr. Qazi’s unique temple fillers are also a very popular solution to aging in the face.  Because the temples naturally become hollow with age, temple fillers are a subtle solution to make you look years younger. 

        Chin fillers are also a highly sought-after procedure used to balance the face and change the shape of the chin. Many people are unhappy with their chin. Thanks to chin fillers, you could walk out of Dr. Qazi’s office with a new chin.

        ✨Cheek and Chin Sculpting✨ Sometimes, due to weight fluctuations, ageing, genetics, or hormones, we notice that parts of our face are sagging or more hollow 👎🏻. There is no exact age when this happens, but it’s vital to help provide structure and support 🏋🏽‍♀️. This young patient was concerned about jowling and loose skin. We determined that the best course of action was to provide balance and harmony key structural areas of the face so that everything appears natural and untouched 💁🏻‍♀️. I used the long lasting, collagen stimulating filler @merz_Aesthetics Radiesse to immediately provide lift and volume to the cheeks and chin. In the future, we might provide some more structure in other strategic areas. Contact us now if you would like a consultation for facial sculpting 💕
