There’s no secret to younger-looking hands
Many of us have an intricate skincare regime that we extend to our neck and décolleté area, but are we taking the same good care of our hands? If yours have yet to develop the tell-tale signs of ageing, start applying whatever you’re using on your face to the backs of your hands.
Much like your complexion, your hands can also be affected by pigmentation, lose volume and develop “wrinkles” in the form of crepey-ness. At the very least, invest in a hand cream that contains collagen-encouraging ingredients like retinol or vitamin C and get religious about applying a high protection sunscreen such as Lamelle Nourish Multiactive Sun 30. It has a sun protection factor of 30 and contains Pycnogenol, a powerful antioxidant that prevents and repairs future DNA damage.
It’s never too late
If you feel like you’re past the stage of prevention, know that it’s never too late to rejuvenate with a little help from Skin Renewal. The clinic’s developed an incredibly popular 3D Hand Rejuvenation treatment to help you turn back the hands of time – pun intended!
The treatment is so quick and easy that it can be performed during your lunch break, is virtually painless and doesn’t require any downtime. You’ll see a big difference in your hands’ appearance the moment the treatment is done and, because the treatment encourages your skin to create more plumping, firming collagen, your results will improve over time!
Step one: Mesotherapy to rejuvenate
To begin, one of Skin Renewal’s highly-trained therapists will apply a topical anaesthetic to your hands, so you’re not going to feel any discomfort, let alone pain. Next, a doctor will perform a mesotherapy treatment. This involves delivering a rejuvenating elixir into the middle layer of the skin via micro-injections. These anti-ageing ingredients are incredibly potent and, because of how they’re delivered, can do so much more than any of the actives you’d find in a hand cream. The cocktail includes skin-rejuvenating growth factors, moisture-boosting hyaluronic acid and collagen-stimulating peptides.
Step two: Dermal fillers to hydrate
If your hands are looking a little crepey and dehydrated you’ll want to know about Juvederm Hydrate. It contains hyaluronic acid, a molecule that occurs naturally in your skin and has the ability to bind to up to 1 000 times its own weight in water. When it’s injected into the skin, it’s able to plump it up from the inside out, creating a much smoother-look. Juvederm Hydrate also contains antioxidants to help your skin fend off the free-radicals that can damage your collagen content over time.
Step 3: More dermal fillers to plump
The final step involves the use of yet more dermal filler, but in a much more dramatic way. If your hands have any bony-looking areas where your skin as thinned out, your youthful-looking plumpness can be restored using a much more viscous dermal filler specially formulated to restore volume. Again, the effects are instant but you get to enjoy a long-term benefit too as injecting hyaluronic acid into your skin helps stimulate the production of your own collagen.
In short, if you’re wanting to give your hands a mini makeover that can take years off you’re your age, Skin Renewal can do it in as little as an hour and get straight back to work. What’s not to love about that?
