The office Christmas do is your big chance to show colleagues, and your boss, just how fabulous you can look! And wrinkles definitely aren't invited. This article looks at how far in advance you need to have your anti-wrinkle treatments to look great on the day of the party.
A lot of focus goes on treatments for your face, and quite rightly so. Your face is the part of your body which you (and other people) see most.
Your second most visible feature tends to be your hands. Whether you’re glancing down at them while typing, shaking hands with a business contact or having your nails done, your hands often take centre stage.
Particularly at this time of year, hands can feel dehydrated and rough, with fine lines becoming all too visible.
So, let’s take a look at how we can give your hands a little love to help them look and feel great again!
Why your hands age
Skin ages as the result of natural, internal ageing and external factors such as sun exposure, smoking and poor diet.
Your hands are particularly vulnerable to premature ageing. Even if you remember to put sunscreen on your hands, it’s often rubbed or washed off and you forget to reapply it.
If you don’t wear gloves for household chores or gardening, then you’re exposing the skin to potential physical and chemical damage.
And, unless you use a very mild soap, each time you wash your hands, you strip them of vital moisture.
In short, your hands have a lot to deal with!
How your hands age
The result of this is skin which sags, wrinkles and roughens.
Your hands can also become prone to areas of pigmentation known as age or liver spots. Despite these common names, these pigmented areas are normally caused by sun damage.
Give your hands a treat
We offer a number of treatments to rejuvenate your hands.
Mesotherapy treatment involves micro injections of nutrients directly into the mesoderm (the tissue below your skin). These ingredients nourish and hydrate your skin. Our mesotherapy treatment for hands includes a rejuvenating skin peel.
Our hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers can be used to target deep lines and wrinkles on your hands. The treatment will return volume to these areas, resulting in plumper, younger-looking skin.
Profhilo injections deliver very pure hyaluronic acid into your skin. This immediately hydrates your hands, so they look and feel softer. After your second round of treatment it also stimulates collagen production for smoother, tighter skin.
Skin boosters from Restylane are injections of hyaluronic acid which intensively hydrate, resulting in smoother and more radiant hands.
Our skin peels are as effective for your hands as they are for your face. They remove dead cells on the surface of your skin, encouraging new cell growth and resulting in a rejuvenated appearance.
Laser treatment for pigmentation
Our laser treatments use light energy to target pigmented areas (known as age or liver spots). It progressively reduces the amount of melanin in the skin, so the spots gradually fade away.
