Don’t let your hands give away your age!
Lines, wrinkles, volume loss and pigmentation on the face are common signs of ageing, but these concerns are also apparent on our hands. As the adage goes ‘If you want to know the true age of a woman look at her hands’!
Our hands are the most used and often abused part of our body – and usually the least looked after. The skin on the back of our hands is prone to becoming sun damaged and dehydrated, and with a decrease in collagen, the veins and tendons become more evident over time. Our hands are a real giveaway as to our age, which is why it’s becoming an increasingly popular treatment area.
At Synergy, we offer several treatments and procedures to reduce the effects of ageing on the hands, including dermal fillers and collagen stimulation.
Ellanese™ Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are ideal for those with bony, veiny hands. Ellanese™ will tackle the loss of volume, plumping the skin and giving it a more youthful appearance. Fillers are injected into the back of hands in a fast, painless procedure. Not only does it instantly lift the tissue, it also gradually boosts lost volume over a period of six to twelve months by building a framework of collagen in the skin. The result is softer, firmer and plumper hands with veins less visible. Effects will last for up to three years.
Lumecca™ is one of the most potent and effective therapies using Intended Pulsed Light (IPL). It is ideal for treating age spots, freckles and sun damage on the back of the hands, which can be an indicator of ageing. The treatment is painless with just a little warming and redness, which will subside within an hour. Over the course of 24 to 48 hours, you may see a darkening of age spots, but these will flake off resulting in clear skin. You will see immediate results after the first session, with optimal results achieved after three sessions.
Our specialist will discuss your concerns and recommend the appropriate treatment or combination of treatments to help you achieve smooth, plump and flawless hands.
