The hands can often show more accelerated signs of ageing than the face. This may be characterised by age spots, thin dry skin and a veiny appearance.
Natural ageing is responsible for the slower production of collagen and elastin. This can create dry hands with visible skin thinness, primarily on the back of the hands. Further loss of elasticity creates a crepey effect, often making the skin appear semi-transparent.
External factors and the environment around us can contribute to roughened skin texture and the appearance of age spots or pigmentation that occurs on the back of the hands.
The Australian Laser & Skin Clinic provides a complete range of age management solutions to address and treat all types and signs of hand ageing Long-lasting and targeted results may be achieved. All injectable treatments are performed by registered nurses.
Photo rejuvenation is a non-invasive treatment performed with a medical-grade Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). Utilising a specific light designed to remove pigmentation, the light is transformed into heat energy that can reduce the appearance of age spots, freckles or uneven skin texture. Treatment may be performed on the back of the hands without harming the skin’s surface.
**Photo Rejuvenation is most suitable for fair to olive complexions; dark to very dark skin tones are not suitable for treatment**
PRP therapy is short for Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy. It is a treatment that uses your own blood to rejuvenate the skin on your hands, providing them with a fresh, youthful appearance. It works by injecting concentrated plasma, harvested from your blood, into your hands. The platelets in your plasma release natural stem cells with major growth factors that help to regenerate ageing or damaged skin tissue. This results in an increase in production of collagen, which in turn gives your skin its radiant, youthful glow. This may take years off the appearance of your hands. It’s an entirely safe procedure; click here if you’d like more information on PRP therapy.
