Are Your Hands Giving It Away??


The face and neck are the primary focus of most who seek non-surgical cosmetic treatment for aging. However, many times, the hands are a telltale indicator of someone's actual chronological age. As we age, our hands lose volume, leaving tendons and veins more visible. The skin thins and "age spots" form from sun exposure. Many times, the hands are never treated with sunscreen or excellent skincare products to keep the skin in optimal health.

At You Only Younger, we offer a comprehensive solution for aging hand syndrome. We can recommend excellent skin care products to improve the texture and quality of the skin and combat "age spots." We also recommend Intense Pulse Light (IPL) or "photofacials" for the hands for more severe cases of sun damage on the hands.

To address volume loss, we use Radiesse. Radiesse is the first and only FDA-approved product for hand augmentation to correct volume loss. Restored volume provides a natural-looking result that is seen immediately and can last up to 1 year. Radiesse continues to work by assisting the body's collagen-building capabilities leaving the skin rejuvenated and smooth.

You Only Younger is the first certified office in the greater Houston/Sugarland Texas area in hand augmentation. We have an experienced team to meet all your hand rejuvenation needs.

"My experience with You Only Younger was amazing. Gabriela Smith handled me with kid gloves as I had never tried Botox before. She and I discussed what I was looking for, and how much Botox would be required to achieve those results, explained what she would be doing before she did it and while she was injecting. There was no pain involved and I had zero bruising. No one had a clue that I had had it done. People asked, 'Did you do something to your hair?' Or, 'Bay Living looks really good on you.' I drove up from Corpus Christi to have Gabriela do the procedure. I won't go to anyone else but her for future fillers/injectables, procedures, etc. She is the consummate professional and I highly recommend her and the entire YOY staff is outstanding."

One of my favorite products is the CytoLuxe Mask. This intense mask makes my skin feel soft and plump. The plant stem cells also help my skin produce collagen as I age... bummer that we age, I know! This mask makes my skin glo and adds a tiny hint of shimmer that makes me smile.

Truly a fun and enjoyable tradition for both children and adults, what's a Halloween celebration without a pumpkin carving? Check out these awesome tips and tricks for choosing the right tools and keeping your carved pumpkin fresh.

First, it's important to choose the right pumpkin. Select one that is fresh, with a stiff stem, no bruises, and a flat bottom so it won't roll.

Cut the lid out on an angle, not straight up and down. This keeps the lid from dropping inside the pumpkin when you replace it. A boning knife works suitably for this.

Remember to scoop out all the pulp - and then some. You can purchase a special "claw" for this, but an ice cream scoop will also work. Thin the inner wall of the "face" area to 1 1/4-inch thick, so it will be not difficult to pierce the shell.


Place the pumpkin in your lap when it's time to carve the features. As you can see, it's not difficult to carve when the face is glaring up at you. Never cut on a slant. Note that clean up-and-down slices appear result in perfect designs.

Use your scraps creatively. For example, you can make a tongue out of a discarded piece of pumpkin shell.

Make sure to keep your pumpkin fresh. Don't forget to spread petroleum jelly on the cut edges to seal in moisture. If your pumpkin still dries up a few days later, you can revitalize it with a facedown drench in cold water for up to eight hours.

If you like to leave the lid on while the candle is lit, make a chimney. To do this, leave the lid on for a few minutes while the candle burns, then create a small hole where the lid has blackened.

Finally, don't forget to spray a little cinnamon inside the lid. When you light the candle, your jack-o'-lantern will smell like pumpkin pie. YUM!

Send us your pictures. We would love to post them on Facebook!!

Happy Halloween! Have fun and be safe!!
