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 incredible new technology such as lasers and energy based devices, virtually any patient can be a candidate for a little rejuvenation and restoration of the skin on the back of their hands. The new concept today is to start with the use of collagen-stimulating combination treatments to improve skin texture and laxity, restore the strength and integrity of the skin and to even out uneven pigmentation on the back of the hands as one gets older.

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 aim is to take a multi-level, combination approach that will treat all of the ageing problems mentioned above.

Our rejuvenation solutions can include a number of very effective treatment options including lasers and energy based devices such as Limelight, Laser Genesis, Endymed FSR, Secret RF, Fraxel DUAL Laser, Monopolar Radiofrequency and PDT (Photodynamic Therapy). Other treatment modalities may include Chemical Peels, Carboxytherapy, Needling, Mesotherapy or even Dermal Fillers and injectables such as Profhilo and Skin Boosters.

A highly professional team led by a medical doctor assesses every patient and an appropriate combination treatment solution together with a 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 or Restylane can add volume and plump up the skin on the back of our hands. The hyaluronic acid present in the dermal filler 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.
