Aging Skin Treatments in Algonquin IL Area
When you think about anti-aging treatments, you probably think of procedures and creams designed for your face. However, your hands also tell an important story about your age and vitality! At Dermatology Specialists of Illinois in Algonquin, Illinois, Dr. Vikram Khanna and our team of dermatology professionals offer a variety of anti-aging skin treatment options to rejuvenate your hands.

Issues that anti-aging treatments target

Your hands are one of the most active parts of your body. In addition to being exposed to the sun daily, think about all of the tasks they help you perform throughout the day. Some of the common hand-related issues that patients ask us to treat include:

  • Bulging veins and crepey skin: As your skin becomes older, it begins to thin and lose fat and hydration, which makes the veins in your hands more obvious. Additionally, because we tend to lose collagen as we age, the thinning skin in the hands can begin to become crepey and wrinkled, resembling tissue paper that has been crumpled up. Dermal fillers, a popular facial anti-aging treatment, can also be used in the hands to boost lost volume, reduce the appearance of veins, and minimize the wrinkling and crepey texture of the skin.
  • Age spots: While most people are diligent about using sunscreen on their faces, their hands are also susceptible to the aging effects of the sun, leading to hyperpigmentation spots on the skin that can add years to the appearance of your hands. Laser skin resurfacing or intense pulsed light therapy can help revitalize your skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, age spots, and other types of pigmentation, all while improving your skin texture.
  • Scaly or rough skin: Washing your hands and using them throughout the day can have a drying effect that can lead to dull, dry, or scaly skin. Microdermabrasion treatments designed for your hands can help gently exfoliate your skin to refine its texture and tone.
  • Crepey skin: Discolored and/or brittle nails: Fungal infections and other issues can cause your nails to look yellow or brown and become brittle. We offer a variety of treatment options for patients with fungal infections, including light-based therapies and oral or topical medications. Dr. Khanna will help you determine which option is best for your specific needs.
