Our hands are exposed to the elements as much as our faces and, as such, they are one of the areas most prone to premature ageing. The skin on our hands is also very thin and when it looses the plumpness of youth the hands can look wrinkled and veiny. Pigmentation caused by sun damage, often described as age spots or liver spots are also common on the hands.
AESTHETIC TREATMENTS FOR HANDS
Dermal fillers can be used to restore a more youthful appearance to the hands by replacing lost volume caused by ageing. By plumping the skin we can reduce the appearance of veins and wrinkles, which make the hands look old.
Sun damage related pigmentation on the back of the hands is one of the biggest factors that contributes to ageing in this area. Chemical peels work to remove skin pigmentation by exfoliating the skin and removing the dead or damaged layers to reveal healthier, smoother skin underneath.
The hand filler Vital is a hyaluronic acid based product known as a “skinbooster”. This treatment is excellent for rejuvenating the back of the hands by replenishing lost hyaluronic acid in the skin to improve skin quality and plump the skin to minimise the appearance of veins and wrinkles.
Plexr is a patented technology that uses Plasma (the ionization of gases in the air) this creates a small electrical arc that causes sublimation of the outer surface of the skin, allowing the skin to form a crust that falls down in 5-7 days leaving a new skin behind, that can be used to treat stretch marks without spreading unwanted heat to the surrounding skin.
