Don't let your hands give away your age

We should all know by now that appearance and first impressions play a very important role in how we are perceived in society. If you are well-groomed and well-presented then you will leave a lasting and positive impression on those you meet, whether it is in a professional situation at work, or on a social occasion when meeting friends or new people. Is it not just the face and overall appearance that people notice when talking to someone, we use our hands a great deal in communicating so they are also keenly observed.

The focus is usually placed on the face for cosmetic procedures but it is the hands that often give away a person’s age. As we start to age in our late 20’s early 30’s we all notice our fat levels and elasticity in the skin decrease and the skin becomes thinner. This show up especially on the back of the hands as the skin is already thin and closer to the bone than other areas on the body. If you take away all the youthful plumpness in the hands then all that’s left is the structures of the hand; the tendons, bones and veins all unfortunately show up.

Also we often neglect to use sun protection on the backs of our hands, so being in full exposure to the sun all the time will cause Sun Damage and Age Spots to develop as we get into our older years. To help minimize the effects of aging on our hands we can moisturize often, cover up and protect with Sun Protection but sometimes that’s just not enough.

Help is at hand though if you excuse the pun!

Pigmentation/Sun Damage

Pigmentation, Age Spots and Freckles are a sure sign of Sun Damage on the skin and has become one of the big concern ladies have about their hands.

IPL Laser treatment can soften lines and reduce the appearance of Age Spots. The Intense Pulsed Light is absorbed by the Melanin (pigment) in the skin and is then broken down, they sometimes form a light scab that will naturally fall off on its own and usually go darker before they break down.

Restylane Skinboosters

Similar to Restylane Fillers, Restylane skinboosters are gels used in aesthetic treatments to treat the overall condition of your skin. Based on a hyaluronic acid gel closely resembling your body's own, Restylane skinboosters are designed to balance the nutritional environment of the skin.

A series of tiny injections are made resulting in improved skin tone and skin elasticity. Skinbooster treatments with the Restylane range hydrate the skin and are perfect for treating the face, hands, neck and décolletage, where over exposure to the sun can cause premature ageing. Visible improvements to the skin can be seen after an initial course of treatments resulting in healthy skin with a beautiful glow

Restylane Skinbooster treatments can restore the youthful volume on the back of your hands, diminish the appearance and make them soft and smooth.
