Many women unfortunately forget that a youthful appearance is not only judged upon the condition of the face, neck and décolleté, but also the condition of the hands.

Our hands do just about everything, and since our hands are exposed to these outside factors most of the time, it results in visible signs of ageing more than on other areas of our body. These ageing signs include age spots, thinning skin, enlarged veins and a bony appearance. The hands are usually ignored in the average woman's skincare regimen and thus give our age away before our faces do.

With the advent of photorejuvenation treatments, virtually any patient can be a candidate for a little brightening of the skin on the back of their hands. The new concept today is to start with the use of collagen-stimulating devices as early as possible, so as to prevent the deterioration of skin texture and laxity on the back of the hands as one gets older.

In addition to topical therapies such as Luminesce, our hand rejuvenation treatments offer a solution to those looking to restore a youthful appearance to their hands. As ageing hands are a multi-layered problem the Hand Rejuvenation in office packages offers a combination of treatments that will treat all of the ageing problems mentioned above. These packages can include a number of very effective treatment options including Limelight or Photo genesis, Chemical Peels, Carboxytherapy, Medical Needling, Mesotherapy or even Dermal Fillers. A highly professional team led by a medical doctor assesses every patient and an appropriate combination treatment together with long term maintenance program is recommended. Every client is provided with a fully customised solution dependant on expectations, budget, time and medical conditions.

Skin Renewal Tip

To instantly refresh old looking hands with enlarged veins and a bony appearance, injectable fillers such as Juvederm can add volume and plump up the skin on the back of our hands. The hyaluronic acid present in the Juvederm attracts water and rehydrates the skin for a period of 10 to 12 months. An added benefit is that new collagen formation is promoted for more long term beneficial effects. The treatment takes approximately 15 to 20 minutes and ice is on hand to reduce the pain factor.
