Young hands that are smooth and without lines look great flashing costume jewelry. Even a simple manicure with plain unpainted nails is attractive. But the passage of time and the effects of long term sun exposure take a toll. Aging hands with thinning skin and wrinkles are due to the skin’s loss of ability to renew once plentiful collagen and elastin.
PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma Injection Treatment is a new cosmetic therapy that helps to restore the look and feel of young hands. Using the patient’s own blood, obtained as easily as blood for a lab test, concentrated platelets containing growth factors are isolated from the blood and reinjected into the problem areas, such as the hollows of the hand. This platelet rich plasma (PRP) is used to stimulate the body’s natural processes to repair and restore its cells and tissues, and leads to collagen renewal in the area. Unattractive aging hands are rejuvenated by the body’s own innate ability to heal itself.
Results can be seen after several weeks when the injected PRP stem cells begin to produce collagen to regenerate the skin. Improving over several months, skin looks firmer and thicker for smooth, younger looking hands.
