As we age, our hands lose firmness and plumpness and begin to look bony and fragile. The skin on the back of the hands becomes thinner and almost translucent with a crape texture. Tendons, veins and joints begin to protrude through the skin and often become flecked with brown spots from sun exposure.
These tell tale signs of ageing typically appear on the hands several years before they appear on the face and can be difficult to hide.
Combating ageing hands takes more than just an over-the-counter hand cream. At Avanti Aesthetics we offer the latest in non-surgical hand rejuvenation procedures that can help improve the skin tone, texture and overall appearance of your hands to complement your other anti-ageing efforts and ensure every handshake is a confident one.
Our Doctors will create a bespoke treatment program for you, recommending one or a combination of the following non-surgical treatments based on your unique needs and cosmetic concerns.
Hand volume restoration with Dermal Fillers
A key component in restoring a youthful appearing hand is the replacement of the volume that has diminished over the course of time. The same dermal fillers that can be used to help fill out wrinkles on the face providing a more youthful appearance can also be injected into key compartments of the hands to restore volume and make the hands appear softer and firmer, and to reduce the appearance of wrinkles or veins.
The most common Dermal Fillers used at Avanti Aesthetics for hand rejuvenation are Radiesse, Ellansé and hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane.
Hand hydration treatments with Juvederm Hydrate/ Restylane Vital
Over the years, skin may dry out as its natural levels of hyaluronic acid diminish due to age and genetic factors, as well as lifestyle factors such as smoking, sun exposure and environmental factors. This is more noticeable in areas that are more exposed to the elements. By injecting micro droplets of hyaluronic acids such a Restylane Vital or Juvederm Hydrate deep into the skin, the skin’s moisture holding capacity (hydrobalance) is restored, resulting in increased skin smoothness, firmness and elasticity.
A course of three treatments is usually required and the results last for approximately 6 months.
Skin Peels for Hand Rejuvenation
Skin Peels are often used for facial and neck rejuvenation to help eliminate pigmentation and leave the skin looking softer and more resilient. Skin Peels are a resurfacing procedure that can also be used on the skin of the hands to help trigger collagen production, which in turn helps the skin become softer, firmer and stronger, improving crapey wrinkled skin on the back of the hands.
Another telltale sign of ageing on your hands is the pigmentation and brown spots that result from sun damage. These can be reduced dramatically or even removed with Skin Peels.
Dermaroller Therapy for Hands
Fine Crapey skin, wrinkles along with pigmentation on the hands can also be improved with Dermaroller Therapy. Dermaroller Therapy uses a sterile medical roller covered in tiny micro needles to create minuscule pin point punctures in the skin. This is perceived by the body as damage and so stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin. Consecutive skin needling sessions trick your body to continue the healing process resulting in the increased production of collagen, improving the appearance of fine crapey skin, wrinkles and even pigmentation on the back of the hands.
