The Park Clinic is planning to be open on Friday, September 18th. We currently do not have power and are unable to confirm appointments. Please be advised there will be no No-Show penalty for patients unable to make it to their appointment. We will be available for all patients who need us. If you had an appointment scheduled with us this week and it was cancelled due to Hurricane Sally, we will be in contact with you as soon as we can. It may be early next week, but we will get those appointments rescheduled. We hope that all of our patients stayed safe during the storm. Should you have an emergency please dial 911.

Hand Rejuvenation Mobile

Hand Rejuvenation Mobile

The hands are the most aged part of the body due to sun exposure, wind and chemical exposure, skin stretch, and fat atrophy. Moisturizers can rehydrate the skin but medical treatments can improve wrinkles, altered pigmentation, and inelasticity. Skin resurfacing with chemical peels, lasers, or dermabrasion removes superficial skin and after healing, the skin is more elastic, evenly pigmented, and exfoliated. Direct excision of skin can tighten the lax skin of the hands and scars are planned to minimize visibility. Increased vein prominence on the back of hand are another tell-tale sign of aging. This is not typically due to enlargement of the veins but due to atrophy of the surrounding fat. Numerous fillers can be used to replace this lost fat. Autologous fat grafting from elsewhere on the body is the best technique for large volume replacement.

After the procedure

Postoperative compression with gloves or tape can limit swelling, which can last for 6 – 12 weeks. The extensive knowledge of anatomy and safe techniques possessed by a well-trained plastic surgeon are important to minimize the risk of vessel or nerve damage.
