Many people first notice the signs of aging on their hands, and that is because our hands are constantly exposed to sunlight and harsh chemicals over the years. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy allows our team to turn back the clock and erase some of the most common signs of aging on the hands, including wrinkles, fine lines, loose skin and discoloration. Unlike many other anti-aging treatments, PRP injections have almost no unwanted side effects. In as little as a few weeks, this amazing technology can restore the youthful appearance of your hands and boost your self-image.
Even if you do everything in your power to protect your hands from the elements, practically everyone notices age-related blemishes at some point. That is because your hands are exposed to many of the different variables that can cause a weathered appearance, including direct sunlight, dry air, chemical-laden beauty products and cleaning products. These can result in many different cosmetic issues, such as age spots, scaly skin and visible veins. While most of these blemishes are not dangerous, many patients find them to be unsightly and want them removed.
A Look at Over-the-Counter Products
Anyone who walks into a pharmacy will quickly realize just how many anti-aging products are on the market. Most of these products are designed to lock in moisture or prevent sun damage, but they will do very little to reverse the signs of aging. You can take many different steps to protect your skin, but you will most likely need professional help once you begin to notice any blemishes. There may come a point when it feels as if combating age-related blemishes feels like you are fighting an uphill battle. If you have a negative self-image because of your hands, then you might be the perfect candidate for PRP injections.
The Science Behind PRP Injections
PRP therapy has been used within the medical community for over a decade to treat many different conditions, including arthritis, tendonitis and acute injuries. Within the last few years, researchers have discovered that this style of treatment can also be used to lessen age-related blemishes. During a treatment session, our specialist will first remove a small sample of the patient’s blood. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge to separate the plasma from all of the other molecules. The final step in this process is to inject the PRP back into the treatment site.
After being injected into the hands, the body will begin producing additional collagen and elastin. These two types of protein are integral to the body’s natural healing process and help reverse the signs of aging.
