10 Non-Surgical Hand Rejuvenation Procedures To Recapture Your Hands’ Youthful Allure

Are you determined to keep your hands youthful and ageless? Frequently, individuals turn to the expertise of Haute Beauty’s own Dr. Anna Avaliani in their pursuit to rejuvenate their hands’ youthful allure. By effectively tackling concerns such as age spots, wrinkles, volume depletion, and thinning skin, the prospect of restoration becomes a reality. With the aid of these ten non-surgical hand rejuvenation procedures, you can reclaim the vibrancy of your hands.

The 10 Non-Surgical Hand Rejuvenation Procedures

1. Dermal Fillers: Injectable dermal fillers containing substances like hyaluronic acid (Restylane, Juvederm) can be used to restore volume to the hands, minimizing the appearance of bony hands and filling in wrinkles and fine lines. The filler is injected into the back of the hands, providing a plumping effect and a more youthful appearance.

2. Exosomes Bio Rejuvenation: Exosomes have regenerative properties that can help improve the quality of the skin on the hands. The growth factors and proteins present in exosomes stimulate collagen production, promote tissue regeneration, and improve skin texture, resulting in smoother and more youthful-looking hands.

3. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy: IPL therapy uses targeted light energy to fade age spots and sun damage on the hands. The light energy is absorbed by the pigment in the skin, breaking up dark spots and stimulating collagen production. This treatment can result in more even-toned and youthful-looking hands.

4. Laser Skin Resurfacing: Laser treatments can help improve skin texture, reduce wrinkles, and diminish age spots on the hands. The laser energy targets the outer layer of the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting skin rejuvenation. Laser skin resurfacing can provide significant improvements in the appearance of the hands. Dr. Avaliani specializes in all kinds of lasers and offers nonablative Fractional lasers like Icon 1540 and PicoSure Focus.

5. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy: PRP therapy involves extracting the patient’s own blood, processing it to isolate the platelets, and then injecting the platelet-rich plasma into the hands. PRP contains growth factors that stimulate collagen production and promote tissue regeneration, leading to improved skin quality and rejuvenation.

6. Skin tightening lasers: RF Microneedling like Genius RF and TempSure Firm RF and Ultherapy are some of the amazing procedures Dr. Avaliani’s office has to offer to help with skin tightening and the best option can only be decided after an in-person consultation.

7. Fat injections with Renuva: Renuva serves as a biostimulator for fat cells, functioning as an injectable filler derived from processed human adipose (fat) tissue. This innovative treatment is employed to replenish volume, enhance skin texture, and revitalize the hands.

8. Sculptra: Sculptra is composed of poly-L-lactic acid, which is a biocompatible and biodegradable substance. When injected, Sculptra works by stimulating collagen production in the skin. Collagen is a natural protein that provides structure and volume to the skin, but its production decreases as we age. By promoting collagen production, Sculptra helps restore volume and improve skin texture over time.

9. Radiesse: Designed to restore volume to the hands, addressing the loss of fat and soft tissue that can occur with aging. The filler is injected into the back of the hands to replenish volume, resulting in a more youthful and fuller appearance.

In addition to providing immediate volume, Radiesse stimulates collagen production in the skin. The calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres in Radiesse act as a scaffold, promoting the growth of new collagen over time. This collagen production can help improve skin quality and texture, enhancing the rejuvenation of the hands.

10. PDO Threads: PDO threads are made of a biocompatible material that is commonly used in medical sutures. When these threads are inserted into the skin, they stimulate collagen production. By promoting collagen synthesis, PDO threads help improve skin texture, tightness, and overall rejuvenation.

Ultimately, with the guidance of Dr. Avaliani, you can combat your aging hands. To see Dr. Avaliani for your expert consultation, please call/text 212-673-8888 or visit us at www.dravaliani.com.

Who is an ideal Candidate for PDO Thread lift?

PDO (Polydioxanone) threads are FDA cleared for minimally invasive cosmetic treatment for facial rejuvenation and lifting. These threads are made of biocompatible and absorbable material called polydioxanone, which is commonly used in medical sutures.

Figure 1 Before and after PDO thread lift for smile lines

During a PDO thread treatment, the threads are carefully inserted under the skin using fine needles or blunt cannulas. Once they are inserted under the skin, the threads work to lift and tighten the skin, promoting collagen production and improving skin elasticity. The threads are designed to dissolve over time, stimulating the body’s natural healing response and creating a supportive network of collagen fibers.

The collagen production and tissue tightening induced by PDO threads lead to visible improvements in facial sagging, wrinkles, and skin laxity. The results of PDO thread treatments are often gradual and can last for several months as the body continues to produce collagen in response to the threads.

Characteristics of an ideal patient candidate for PDO instant threads must include:

  1. Healthy Skin: Candidates should have overall healthy and plump skin without significant sun damage (leathery skin), active infection, or history of severe acne scarring
  2. Mild to Moderate Skin Laxity: PDO threads are most effective for individuals with mild to moderate skin laxity in the areas like around the eyes, mouth, jowls, and the neck area.
  3. Realistic Expectations: It’s essential for patients to have realistic expectations about the outcomes of PDO thread treatments. While the procedure can provide noticeable improvements, it may not achieve the same results as a surgical facelift.
  4. Healthy life style: Non-smokers and people who tend to avoid alcohol have better skin quality and will have minimal to no bruising and heal a lot faster with less swelling or discomfort from the procedure.
  5. Having had fillers and lasers prior to the thread lift procedure is beneficial because it will help and compliment the overall results. (This of course does not apply to everyone but it’s a good rule to consider)
  6. Commitment and compliant to Aftercare: Following the procedure, patients should be willing to follow the aftercare instructions provided to ensure smooth recovery and best results.
  7. No more volume needed. Patients who are afraid of adding more filler volume to their face. Fillers don’t necessarilylift, they tend to fill. Some people may mistakenly end up lookingoverfilled because they were wrongly advised
  8. Patients who are not getting the lift that they want from injections or lasers
  9. Patients who are open to trying new procedures
  10. Patient who can avoid excessive talking, strenuous exercise and a few easy days to relax at home to ensure the thread will not move.

The ideal patient candidate for PDO (Polydioxanone) threads is someone who has mild to moderate facial sagging, skin laxity, or wrinkles and desires a non-surgical and minimally invasive solution for facial rejuvenation. This candidate must also be excited to experience an instant lift, just like dermal fillers give instant fill .

As with any cosmetic procedure, results may vary, and a consultation with an experienced healthcare professional is essential to determine if PDO threads are the right option for individual aesthetic goals.

10 Easy to Follow Steps After Laser Treatments in the Summer or Even Winter!

Aftercare following laser treatments is crucial to ensure proper healing, minimize complications, and maximize the effectiveness of the treatment. While specific aftercare instructions may vary depending on the type of laser treatment and individual circumstances, here are some general guidelines for the best laser aftercare protocol. This is just a recommendation based on Dr. Anna Avaliani’s approach to after laser care and every physician has their own approach and recommendations. The following recommendations are really strongsuggestions.

  1. Follow Post-Treatment Instructions: Rule #1 is to Always adhere to the post-treatment instructions provided by your doctor. They will provide specific guidance based on the type of laser treatment, the treated area, and your skin type.
  2. Protect Your Skin from the Sun: SPF 30 + Vit CE Ferulic Sun protection is essential after laser treatments.Avoid direct sun exposure, especially during peak sun hours of10am-4pm. Mineral based sunscreen with SPF over 30 is always recommended. Use tinted or universal tinted sunscreens to avoid the white “ghost like” look. Apply 30 minutes before leaving your home.  Must add topical Vit C&E serums for increased protection. The holy grail is Vit CE Ferulicwith tons of science to back it up. Wear protective clothing with long sleeves if your body was treated (arms, chest, abdomen) Don’t forget a wide-brimmed hat. Reapply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF to the treated area and reapply as directed. Avoid IR saunas and Steam rooms for 3-5 days. Even Cryo sauna treatments.
  3. Keep the Treated Area Clean: To be on safer side, please avoid make up for full 24 hours after any laser procedure that involved resurfacing of your skin (ablative vs or non-ablative and all types of microneedling) If you had radio frequency like TempSure Envi or ultrasound type of treatment like Ultherapy, then make up application is safe immediately after your treatments as the skin barrier is intact.
  4. Moisturize Regularly: Keep the treated area well-hydrated by applying a gentle, non-irritating moisturizer recommended by your healthcare professional. Moisturizing helps maintain the skin’s barrier function, promotes healing, and reduces dryness or discomfort. It is best to consult what to apply as there are many medical grade options out there that have been safely tested for application after lasers. There are even creams that expedite the healing and help reduce redness. Avoid using any skincare products that may irritate or interfere with the healing process. You may even use different moisturizers in the summer time vs winter time. Light weight is better for the summer and more moisturizing and hydrating in the winter as the air is less humid.
  5. Avoid Picking or Scratching: It’s important to refrain from picking, scratching, or peeling any scabs or crusts that may form on the treated area. Let the skin naturally heal and avoid any unnecessary trauma or irritation. Picking at the treated area can increase the risk of infection, scarring, or pigmentation changes.
  6. Gentle cleansers : During the initial healing period, it’s advisable to avoid activities that can generate excessive heat or cause excessive sweating. This includes hot showers, saunas, steam rooms, intense workouts, or activities that may lead to excessive perspiration. Excessive heat or sweat can irritate the treated skin and impede the healing process for the first 3 days after the procedure.
  7. Stay Hydrated and Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle: Drink plenty of water to keep your body and skin hydrated. A well-hydrated body supports optimal healing. Additionally, maintain a healthy lifestyle by following a balanced diet, getting enough sleep, and managing stress. These factors contribute to overall skin health and can enhance the healing process.
  8. Avoid retinols or retinoids for 3-5 days prior and 3-5 days after for non ablative lasers. For super sensitive skins, avoiding them for a full 7-10 days is likely optimal, but it is best to discuss with your treating physician.
  9. Avoid exfoliation for 1 week before and one week after.
  10. Reapply SPF!!! Ideally every 1-2 hrs Between prime time of sun exposure of 10 am-4pm. Even if you are indoors. Even when you are driving in the car. Even when you are next to a window. Do not make a mistake of applying SPF 100 and thinking it will last for the whole day. Reapplication of sun screen is very important.

The Five Treatment Options To Combat Ozempic Hands

Have you heard of Ozempic? It has gained considerable attention recently and you might have come across it in various media outlets, from TV commercials to TikTok. Dubbed the “weight loss shot,” Ozempic has become quite ubiquitous, making its impact hard to ignore.

You may have seen people shedding pounds rapidly while using Ozempic. Whether you noticed because of their drooping facial features or a skeletal appearance in their hands, these are harsh side effects, amongst others, that people can experience while on Ozempic. Haute Beauty expert Dr. Anna Avaliani warns of these adverse effects.

As a matter of fact, Ozempic is primarily intended for the management of type 2 diabetes and not as a dedicated weight loss medication. Its main active ingredient is semaglutide, which belongs to a class of drugs known as glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1 RAs). Ozempic works by mimicking the effects of a hormone called GLP-1, which helps regulate blood sugar levels. By stimulating GLP-1 receptors, Ozempic can improve blood sugar control and, in some cases, lead to weight loss, especially in your hands. Here Dr. Avaliani dives into the details surrounding Ozempic hands and offers guidance on addressing the skeletal appearance caused by the medication.

The Causes of Ozempic Hands

Now, why do hands exhibit these side effects prominently? Well, hands can reveal signs of aging because they are frequently exposed to environmental factors and undergo natural aging processes. With the help of Ozempic, this aging process can be accelerated. Here are a few reasons why hands can reveal your age: sun damage, loss of volume, reduced collagen and elasticity, thinning skin, and lifestyle factors – like Ozempic.

To address these concerns, specifically Ozempic hands, and maintain youthful-looking hands, Dr. Avaliani advises you protect your hands from sun exposure. Wearing sunscreen, seeking shade, and using protective clothing is your best bet. Additionally, moisturizing the hands regularly, using hand creams or lotions containing hydrating and nourishing ingredients, can help keep the skin supple and moisturized.

Treating Ozempic Hands

If you are experiencing specific issues related to Ozempic hands, it is highly advisable to consult with Dr. Avaliani, the non-invasive cosmetic and laser surgery pro. She can provide personalized recommendations and suggest suitable approaches to restore your hands to their optimal appearance. Some of the options she may discuss include:

  1. Dermal Fillers: Injectable dermal fillers containing substances like hyaluronic acid (Restylane®, Juvederm®) can be used to restore volume to the hands, minimizing the appearance of bony hands and filling in wrinkles and fine lines. The filler is injected into the back of the hands, providing a plumping effect and a more youthful appearance.
  2. Exosomes Bio Rejuvenation: Exosomes have regenerative properties that can help improve the quality of the skin on the hands. The growth factors and proteins present in exosomes stimulate collagen production, promote tissue regeneration, and improve skin texture, resulting in smoother and more youthful-looking hands.
  3. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy: PRP therapy involves extracting the patient’s own blood, processing it to isolate the platelets, and then injecting the platelet-rich plasma into the hands. PRP contains growth factors that stimulate collagen production and promote tissue regeneration, leading to improved skin quality and rejuvenation.
  4. Fat Injections with Renuva: Renuva is a biostimulator of fat cells, an injectable filler made from processed human adipose (fat) tissue. It is used to restore volume, improve skin texture, and rejuvenate the hands.
  5. Bio Stimulators like Sculptra® or Radiesse®: Sculptra® is composed of poly-L-lactic acid, which stimulates collagen production in the skin. By promoting collagen production, Sculptra® helps restore volume and improve skin texture over time. Radiesse®, on the other hand, is designed specifically to restore volume to the hands, replenishing lost fat and soft tissue. It acts as a scaffold, promoting the growth of new collagen and improving skin quality and texture.

The side effects of Ozempic, including the appearance of skeletal hands, can be concerning for individuals using this medication. Each treatment option aims to restore volume, improve skin texture, and promote collagen production, resulting in more youthful-looking hands.

Ultimately, with the guidance of Dr. Avaliani, you can combat your Ozempic hands. To see Dr. Avaliani for your expert consultation, please call/text 212-673-8888 or visit us at www.dravaliani.com.

Instantly Thread Your Wrinkles Away With NovaThread Facelift

Are you tired of feeling insecure about the signs of aging on your face? You’re not alone. As we get older, it is natural to become self-conscious about wrinkles, sagging skin, and other visible signs of aging. So, to turn back the clock and feel confident in your appearance once again, Haute Beauty expert Dr. Anna Avaliani is here to talk about NovaThread Facelift. What exactly is it? Let’s dive in.



How it Works

Simply put, NovaThread Facelift it’s a non-surgical facelift that uses FDA-approved PDO absorbable sutures to lift, tighten, and smooth your skin. During the NovaThread procedures, Dr. Avaliani inserts PDO-absorbable sutures into the skin to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen. Over time, approximately four to six months, the sutures are broken down by the body, leaving behind a natural-looking lift and improved skin tone and texture.

There are three types of NovaThreads available, each with a unique purpose:

  • Smooth threads: Used for treating superficial wrinkles and lines.
  • Volumize threads: Used for defining the lip border, filling and lifting deep wrinkles or folds (such as smile lines), and adding volume to the face.
  • Lift threads: These threads feature small barbs that “lift” the skin, helping to restore a more youthful and natural appearance.

The Benefits

One of the biggest advantages of the NovaThread procedure is that it is non-surgical and non-invasive. Unlike a traditional facelift, there are no scars, no anesthesia, and no lengthy recovery time. In fact, the entire procedure can be completed in just 30 minutes, making it an ideal option for those with busy schedules.

Additionally, the results of the NovaThread procedure are long-lasting, with most patients experiencing the benefits for anywhere from one to two years, depending on the area treated and the number of threads used. And because the sutures are absorbable, there is no risk of the body rejecting the threads or causing an adverse reaction.

Who’s a Candidate?

While the NovaThread procedure is a great option for many people, it may not be the best choice for everyone. Dr. Avaliani recommends asking yourself the following questions before deciding if the procedure is right for you:

  • Do you want surgery?
  • Do you want scars for life?
  • Do you have two to three weeks of recovery time?
  • Do you want people to see you completely changed?

If you answered “no” to any of these questions, you may be a good candidate for the NovaThread procedure. It is also worth noting that while the NovaThread procedure is a safe and effective way to lift and tighten the skin, it is not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle. Eating a nutritious diet, staying hydrated, and avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol consumption are all important steps to maintaining a youthful appearance.

What type of thread lifts does Dr. Avaliani specialize in?

Dr. Avaliani is a top Cosmetic Physician on Park Avenue and is one of the first female physicians to pioneer the thread lift technique in New York City. She has been proudly offering it to her clients since the first day it was introduced to the U.S. market. She is an expert in NovaThreads, Mint Threads, Aptos Threads, and Silhouette Soft threads.

If you are looking to turn back the clock, consult with Dr. Anna Avaliani today to learn if a NovaThread Facelift is the right anti-aging treatment for you.

The Benefits Of Using Picosure Laser To Remove Microbladed Eyebrows

Do you have sparse, thin, or even asymmetrical eyebrows? If the answer is yes, then there is a high chance that you’ve considered going a more permanent route when it comes to filling in your brows. As you’ve gone through many eyebrow pencils, tried henna tattoos, and eyebrow lamination – these options are no longer cutting it. This is when most resort to microblading, a semi-permanent cosmetic tattooing technique used to enhance and reshape eyebrows.

Haute Beauty expert Dr. Anna Avaliani often works with patients who have received microblading on their eyebrows. Though effective, there are times when people may want to remove or lighten their microbladed eyebrows. To do so, Dr. Avaliani uses a Picosure laser because of its many benefits.

The Benefits of Picosure

  • Fast treatment time – Picosure laser uses ultra-short pulses of energy, which means that the treatment is faster than other laser removal methods. It can take as little as 2-4 sessions to remove microblading pigment.
  • Effectively breaks down pigment – the laser is particularly effective for removing stubborn colors like red, brown, yellow, and orange. It also treats black and blue ink.
  • Minimal discomfort – shorter pulses of energy, means there is a less likely chance your skin will become irritated or inflamed during the treatment.
  • Safe for all skin types – Picosure is less likely to cause hyperpigmentation, which is a common concern with other laser hair removal options.
  • High success rate – it is important to note that laser removal is not always 100% effective in removing all the pigment, but Dr. Avaliani has seen a success rate with this particular treatment.
  • Doesn’t cause scarring – Picosure relies on ultra-short pulses of energy delivered to the skin in trillionths of a second. The lack of heat means less skin damage.
  • Doesn’t cause eyebrow hair loss – there are no indications of Picosure causing hair loss. If you experience loss of hair at the treatment site it will grow back.
  • No downtime necessary – the laser doesn’t cause irritation and less irritation means less downtime.

If you are interested in Picosure for removing the red and yellow pigment of microblading, consult with Dr. Anna Avaliani today

Anti-Inflammatory Proteins Are The Answer To Youthful Skin

Did you know we lose 1% of collagen every year after the age of 20?
Your skin in your 20’s is firm.
Your skin in your 30’s is prone to damage from the environment and from daily expressions.
Your skin in your 40’s is sagging due to more noticeable volume loss.
Your skin in your 50’s is looser and saggier.
Your skin in your 60’s is more damaged and saggier and with more noticeable volume loss.

The question is, what can one do to replace and restore the collagen and elasticity we lose? As Haute Beauty expert Dr. Anna Avaliani shared, we need to invest in our skin and not call it an expense, and exosome treatment is the perfect start. If you’re wondering what exosomes are and if they even work, don’t worry; we were, too, until we sat down with Dr. Avaliani and got the answers. Here’s a comprehensive question-and answer session on exosomes.

What are exosomes?
Exosomes are often referred to as (Mesenchymal Stem Cells. Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) are human placenta, and umbilical cord lining-derived cells with the self-renewing ability and can differentiate into various cell lineages. Multiple studies have reported that MSCs could elicit therapeutic effects via differentiation and/or secretion of factors such as growth factors, cytokines, and chemokines.

They consist of lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids and are acellular. Studies have confirmed that these extracellular vesicles have beneficial effects on inflammation, autoimmunity, and regeneration, and contain over 300 growth factors responsible for wound repair and tissue regeneration.

Advantages of Exosomes for Skin Regeneration and restoration

  • No blood draw or spinning of centrifuge for people who are afraid of needles
  • Acellular – no live cells, no risk of rejection.
  • Over 300 Growth factors
  • Contains Hyaluronic Acid
  • Topical and sub-dermal application
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • No reconstituting or matrix needed
  • Noninvasive holistic approach to skin regeneration
  • Has the potential to increase the thickness of the dermal skin layer and repair the environmental damage

What are some of the many important functions of exosomes?

  1. They come into the body ready to support the DNA structure that already exists in the body, not to implement new ones.
  2. They help internally with cell-to-cell communication.
  3. They carry Immunoprotective properties and help the body protect cells from bacteria and viruses.
  4. They are Immune Privileged, meaning they cannot be rejected by a third party.
  5. When used as IV therapy, they have the ability to cross the Blood-Brain-Barrier without the use of mannitol, which many substances depend on to foster their healing properties.
  6. They carry a lot of TGFß3 Transforming Growth Factor Beta 3 – The most important anti-inflammatory protein.
  7. They carry Anti-Viral, Anti-Bacterial, Anti-Microbial, and Anti-Inflammatory properties.
  8. They are acellular, meaning their are no live cells and they cannot be rejected by the body, hence they do not carry the risk of Graft vs Host disease.

What is the source of exosomes?
The donor of the tissue used to produce this product is eligible to donate tissue for transplantation based on meeting the following criteria:

  1. Donors are pre-screened through medical record review and evaluation of prenatal tests.
  2.  Eligibility contingent on confirmation of-Behavioral risk assessment-Physical assessment-Donor medical history-Blood test results-Communicable disease testing.

Discussions with physicians and /or the donor mother are conducted to identify circumstances that may lead to the exclusion of the donor or donated tissue. The blood sample test results, donor medical history, behavior risk assessment, physical assessment, and information from other sources or records, which may pertain to donor suitability, have been evaluated by a Medical Director. The results are used to determine that the donor suitability criteria at the time of tissue recovery have been met and that the tissue is acceptable for transplantation.

How can exosomes be delivered into your skin?
The exosomes can be injected subdermally or applied topically after a laser resurfacing or a Microneedling treatment session.

Can exosomes be injected into the skin?
Yes, they can, and it can either be done by a needle or a laser-assisted delivery.

Can exosomes be applied topically?
Yes, but better results are seen when they are able to be delivered deeper into the skin either by needle or laser.

Which laser treatments work best with exosomes?
RF Microneedling was found to deliver the best results in combination with exosomes, as the depth of the needle can be adjusted.

Can exosomes be injected around the eyes?
Absolutely yes. Just look at the result below.

How often can I do exosome treatments?
The best interval between treatments is between 6 months up to 1 year.
