As much as you do to take care of your skin and keep your face looking youthful and radiant, your hands could be giving away your age or even making people think you’re older than you are, especially if you haven’t treated them well over the years.
Every day, your hands are busy and they’re exposed to the elements, making them vulnerable to dry skin, sun damage and poor hydration. You may find that your hands have visible raised veins, brown spots or lots of fine lines and wrinkles as a result.
If you would love to improve the appearance of your hands so that they look younger and are less of a giveaway of your physical age, we would recommend that you come in for a consultation so that we can discuss which treatment or treatments would give you the best results.
At the Golden Ratio Cosmetic Clinic, there are a number of different treatments that can be used alone or in combination to rejuvenate the appearance of your hands. You can find out more about these treatments in the section below.
We can use treatments such as HydraFacial, Intense Pulsed Light, cosmeceuticals and dermal fillers to help your hands look smoother, better hydrated and younger.
Hydrafacial For The Hands
Don’t save the Hydrafacial for your face, it’s a great treatment for the hands too! HydraFacial is sometimes called a ‘red carpet’ facial because it can boost the appearance of your skin without any downtime, giving you a youthful healthy glow. This treatment can be used on your hands rather than, or as well as, your face.
The HydraFacial is packed full of powerful antioxidants that can improve the appearance of damage caused by pollution, stress and time. The treatment will detoxify your skin, remove dead skin cells, extract impurities, and provide long-lasting hydration and nutrients to help your skin rebuild its collagen levels.
Intense Pulsed Light treatment
With Intense Pulsed Light treatments such as Forma and Fractora, we are able to convert light energy into heat that causes the old collagen and elastin in your skin to unwind and stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin. In turn, this makes your skin feel and look firmer and tighter, restoring some of the elasticity to the skin on your hands.
Skin care products
Skin care products range from cosmeceuticals up to pharmaceutical and prescription only skin care. They typically contain active ingredients that can help improve the health and appearance of your skin. Here at the Golden Ratio Cosmetic Medical Clinic, we primarily use the Obagi and ZO® cosmeceutical medical ranges. The products in these ranges mean that we can recommend a bespoke skincare routine for you to use at home.
Dermal fillers use a synthetic version of hyaluronic acid, which is a type of sugar that occurs naturally in the human body and acts like a cushion of fluid in the joints, eyes and beneath the skin. Combined with collagen and elastin, hyaluronic acid helps the skin to look youthful and hydrated.
Dermal fillers are a popular treatment choice for hand rejuvenation as they can be injected in small quantities into targeted areas to make your hands appear less veiny and to smooth away lines and wrinkles.
