While more people are vigilant about using sunscreen and skin care products on their face, they often forget to care for their hands. One of the first places to show the signs of aging is the hands with prominent veins, wrinkled and thin skin, age spots, uneven tone, and a rough texture. Hand rejuvenation at Dr. Paresi of Dr. Robert J Paresi, Jr. MD in Chicago is used to restore the youthful appearance of the hands using fat injections and laser skin resurfacing. The fat transfer removes excess fat from an area of the patient's body and then re-injects the purified fat into areas of the hands that have lost volume. Laser skin resurfacing can address lines, wrinkles, discoloration, sun damage, and age spots. Schedule a consultation with plastic surgeons Dr. Robert Paresi to learn more about hand rejuvenation.

"Dr. Paresi and his and his staff are great people, very friendly. I had lipo done on my lower and upper stomach, and my love handles. I was never able to lose fat from this area no matter how hard I tried. My results were better than I could have ever expected. My only regret is that I waited so long to have this done. Thanks again Dr.!"- A.M. / Google / May 28, 2019

"I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Paresi!! When his patient consultant Kim and I first spoke, I was highly impressed by her professionalism and exuberance. You can tell that she really loves what she does, as well as, the doctors and medical staff too. On Feb 13th, I had my necklift consulation with Dr. Paresi and Kim which put me at ease and got me excited about something that I have been thinking about doing for quite a while. I had my procedure on March 18th, and am extremely pleased with the results thus far. At the 3-month mark, I will have my post op pics taken and posted to the site. All of my follow-up appointments with Dr. Paresi have been fantastic and coming to the office is such a pleasure. Everyone there makes you feel like you are family. I am so happy that I chose Dr. Paresi - he is great!!"- C.R. / Facebook / Apr 30, 2019
"I recently underwent rhinoplasty surgery, something I have wanted to do for years now. I chose Dr. Paresi because of the amazing reviews I've read about him & because he is double board-certified, not a small achievement. I couldn't be happier with the results, with his amazing staff and with the experience as a whole. I will definitely be using Dr Paresi for any future procedures."- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Apr 18, 2019
If fat transfer is used, the surgeon will make minimal incisions to remove the fat from an area of the body. After the fat is removed, it is carefully purified and put in syringes so it can be added into areas of the hand that have age-related volume loss. Laser skin resurfacing is typically quick with the eyes protected as the laser is passed over the hands.
During/After The Procedure
A fat transfer is usually performed with the patient under local anesthesia in an accredited surgical facility as an outpatient procedure. The length of the procedure will depend on the amount of fat being removed and transferred. Laser skin resurfacing can be performed in the minor procedures room without anesthesia. The surgeon will talk to each patient about what to expect after their hand rejuvenation procedure, including how to care for their hands, signs to watch for, and when to follow up.

Hand Rejuvenation FAQs
The results of hand rejuvenation through fat transfer can usually be seen immediately, although patients will need to wait until the swelling is gone and the fat has settled into its final position before they see their final results. Laser skin resurfacing will show some results right away, but the patient will continue to see improvement as the outer layer of skin sheds and a new, healthy layer of skin appears.
Recovery Time Frame?
Patients may have some bruising, inflammation, and redness in their hands for the first two weeks after their procedure, but the final results can usually be seen in 2 – 8 weeks. Patients can talk to their surgeon about other treatments if they want more dramatic results.
After a hand rejuvenation procedure, patients are encouraged to start a hand care regimen that includes daily sunscreen applications to protect the results. Patients should also keep their hands well-hydrated with a high-quality moisturizer. Gloves are also recommended to keep the hands protected during the winter.
