An effective skin care regime, makeup, and facial cosmetic procedures can help your face look years younger. But, the wrinkly skin, prominent veins, and dark spots on the back of your hands will always give away your age. In fact, hands age more rapidly than your face or other parts of your body. The best way to guess a person’s age is to look at their hands, not at their face. While a good skincare regimen and anti-aging procedures will help take off a few years of your face, the wrinkly skin, dark spots, and prominent veins the back of your hands might be telling a different story. Our hands receive a lot of sun exposure, and because of this, they are one of the first places to start showing visible signs of aging. As you age, your skin starts losing collagen and elasticity, and this show up first in your hands.
• Darkening of skin
• Loss of volume
This treatment is used to treat fine wrinkles, skin discoloration, sun damage or age spots. Chemical Peels are a great way to lighten sun spots and refresh the skin. Peels are topically applied formulas that revitalize the skin surface by creating an even and controlled shedding of the skin cells. This allows new layers to be exposed, creating a fresh appearance and smoother texture to the skin surface.
During a peel, a chemical solution is applied to the hands with a sponge/brush. The solution is allowed to remain on the skin for a precise period of time before it’s washed off or ‘neutralized’. The chemical peel removes surface wrinkles, spots and discolorations.
After the treatment you will notice the lightning of dark spots and hyper-pigmentation.
Once the tone and some fine lines have been improved, now we look at re-building the volume you used to have “puffing up” under the delicate skin of your hands. We use Juvederm® Ultra Plus for hand rejuvenation. This is one of the fillers we use for hand rejuvenation and works to immediately increase the volume in the skin as well as promote the natural production of collagen within the body. Collagen is a protein that your body produces in order to strengthen tissues, and when used to cosmetically treat sunken features, collagen can improve skin elasticity and restore a more youthful appearance.
First the hand is cleaned with an alcohol swab then numbing cream is applied, after that wait for 30min to 45 min, clean the numbing clean then take a picture and start the treatment. Filler is injected into the skin at equidistant points all over the back of the hands.
Filler will provide structure as well as stimulate your own collagen to grow giving long lasting results, up to a year or longer.
Lasers are considered the gold standard when it comes to treating sun spots. In addition to removing brown patches. Skin coloration irregularities are relatively common. Pigmentation disorders like hyper pigmentation can make the skin appear lighter or darker. We offer a variety of lasers for different types of skin pigmentation and skin types.
This works by either removing the outer layer of skin or damaging the cells that produce melanin.
During the treatment, laser energy is delivered to the target area in a series of short pulses. This energy is more efficiently absorbed by the dark cells containing the most pigment, and the energy causes the pigment to break down. The treatment may need to be completed over a course of sessions, depending on the extent of hyper pigmentation.
You can see the difference in brown spot and pigmentation and get lightning after the treatment, but if you want to achieve a better result you need to take several sessions.
