It’s not only your face that shows your age. Our hands are always in the sun and are forgotten in the daily sunscreen routine. Many people wonder how to get rid of hand wrinkles and spots.
At Constantine Cosmetic Surgery, we offer a combination of two treatments to get the best outcome. The first step is using filler the FDA has deemed effective to regain youthful hands. There are two types: Restylane Lyft or Radiesse. These correct in three ways:
- Replenishes lost volume
- Minimizes visibility of veins and tendons
- Provide a smooth, natural result
