Question: I have had several facial rejuvenation procedures and am often told that I look at least 10 years younger. One day, I was quite embarrassed when someone said my hands and décolletage look 70 while my face looks 55. Are there any effective, non-surgical options for treating aging hands and décolletage?
Answer: With the popularity of non-surgical facial rejuvenation, many more people are undergoing facial cosmetic procedures. As a result, there is a greater focus on the hands and décolletage which can readily give away your older age. A mismatch between a youthful face with aging hands and décolletage can be quite embarrassing. Viable non-surgical treatments for hand and chest rejuvenation can now be performed in short office appointments with minimal to no downtime.
When brown spots or sun-damage also exist, intense pulse light or similar “lasers” can be combined with fillers. Filler options include Bellafill – The 5 Year Filler, Sculptra, Juvederm and Radiesse, the latter being FDA approved for injection of the hands with the others being considered off-label, yet consistent with commonly accepted medical practice.
An aging décolletage typically shows loss of skin elasticity, poor skin texture with wrinkles as well as volume loss. Multi-modality therapy with Infini or Ulthera for skin tightening and intense pulse light for skin textural changes combined with injectable filler for volume loss can be very effective. This combination of minimal and non-invasive treatments can result in dramatic rejuvenation of the décolletage.
When rejuvenating your facial appearance, it’s important not to forget your hands or décolletage, both of which can easily reveal your true age. Hand and décolletage rejuvenation can be done using minimal invasive treatments with minimal to no downtime.
