No matter how well you look after the skin on your face, the backs of the hands are one of the biggest giveaways of a person’s age! Prominent veins are a casualty of thinning and dehydrated skin, loss of fat and elasticity causing the veins to be more prominent, especially if you are very slim.
Like our faces, our hands are always visible so other factors such as household chemicals, pollution and the sun are responsible for this condition.
At The Cosmetic Skin Clinic we have found that the most effective treatment option is a short course of Restylane® Vital which plumps, smoothes and hydrates crêpey aged skin to bring back a more youthful appearance.
Moisturising creams will always have their place to make the hands feel smoother and more nourished but these effects are temporary due to creams sitting on the skin’s surface as they do not penetrate deeply enough, whereas Restylane Vital® replenishes the skin’s hyaluronic acid (HA), penetrating at a level in the dermis where it is needed for enhancing the skin’s natural hydration. It improves skin elasticity and skin smoothness by supplying deep dermal hydration and moisture internally. A combination of IPL for pigmentation to reduce sun damage and age spots will also improve the overall quality of the skin too.
Restylane Vital® is a smooth crystal clear HA gel, injected into the skin to replenish the skin’s natural HA which causes water retention and gives the skin a plump, natural and more supple look. IPL photo rejuvenation is an intense pulsed light that helps to eliminate pigmentation, sun damage and age spots.
Restylane Vital® hand rejuvenation treatment is a course of 3 treatments, 2 to 3 weeks apart from £650. Maintenance treatment is once a year. IPL Photo Rejuvenation starts from £90.
