• Meet Our Newest Tool for Hand Rejuvenation: The Phoenix Laser

    on Mar 20th, 2017

When it comes to signs of aging, many of us focus on our faces. After all, your face is the first thing others notice about you. Unfortunately, aging is not a localized occurrence, and there are other areas of your body that are also prone to changes over the years.

Hands and arms can also reveal our age, sometimes more so than our faces because these areas often go ignored or unprotected. Over time, age spots, wrinkles, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and liver spots can appear on these areas—and, unfortunately, these concerns are difficult to improve with over-the-counter products.

That is why we are pleased to offer our patients a safe and effective way to improve these signs of aging quickly, comfortably, and successfully using the Phoenix 15 laser. This laser treatment can be completed in as little as 30 seconds and is often performed while undergoing another skincare treatment.

Look as young as you feel with cutting-edge technology

The Phoenix device is a CO2 fractional laser that uses state-of-the-art technology to quickly remove signs of aging by penetrating through the epidermis to heat the sub-dermal layers of your skin. This process prompts your skin to “heal” the area by stimulating collagen production. Though it can be used on other areas of the body, the Phoenix system is specially designed to easily treat the hands—you simply rest your hands inside of a comfortable enclosure to receive treatment.

In as little as a week, patients will notice some flaking of the skin in the treated area, followed by a renewed layer of baby-soft skin. Our patients report seeing improvements in their skin’s elasticity, color, texture, and firmness. Aside from the results, one of the benefits of this treatment is how comfortable it is. Patients can resume regular daily activities immediately following treatment and will start to see the renewal of their skin in 7-10 days.

We invite you to come explore your options

If you are self-conscious about the aged appearance of your arms and hands, a professional who is experienced in performing laser treatments can help you understand your options. I have had great success with this treatment and encourage you to contact our office to learn more about the Phoenix laser or find out what other treatments may benefit you.
