How To Stop Your Hands From Looking Older Than Your Face
Table of Contents
As we grow older, not only does our face begin to lose its form with wrinkling and sagging, but so does the rest of our body. Our bodies naturally produce the two proteins elastin and collagen from a young age, but this production begins to decline from as young as 25. Because of this, our skin no longer ‘bounces back’ when gravity takes its toll, leading to our aged appearance.
Obviously, to counteract these changes, we have the usual skincare products that work to prevent the effects of ageing. These products are mostly full of Hyaluronic Acid as this helps reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles as well as retain moisture and create a plumping effect. And although we are able to lather the rest of our body in anti-ageing body creams and lotions, sometimes a more effective and long-lasting solution is appealing.
One part of the body that takes a significant ageing effect, in addition to the face, is our hands. This is due to how much we use our hands and because the skin laxity/quality isn’t as high as our stomach’s skin, for instance. If you’re looking for a treatment that’ll stop your hands from looking older than your face, please keep reading.
Here at Aesthetics of Liverpool, we have several anti-ageing treatments available to our clients, giving them the freedom of choice when deciding on which procedure will be suitable for them. Not only that but our clinician’s design each and every client a bespoke treatment plan that has been made specifically for them, their skin condition/type and what results that they want to achieve.
PRXT33 for Ageing Hands
PRXT33 has been flooding the press recently for being one of the most reliable and effective in stopping your hands from looking older. This revolutionary skin peel is like no other, with its no downtime and the ‘no-peeling needed’ process smooths out wrinkles and lines on the majority of the body.
The skin peel’s ingredients of TCA (33%) and Hydrogen Peroxide (67%) work deep into the dermis of the skin rather than the outer layer. Think of it like working from the inside out; by stimulating the skin tissues to produce new collagen, the top layer isn’t affected in any way.
This peel was originally designed to be an upgrade of the already world-leading peel: Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) Peel. This non-toxic chemical peel works to break down the top layer of skin cells so that they eventually peel off, revealing a new layer of rejuvenated skin. PRXT33 is also non-invasive while stimulating new fibroblasts and growth factors during the natural healing process, which is activated through the peel causing trauma to the tissue. Even though this sounds daunting, it is able to do this without aggressively exfoliating the dermis, meaning inflammation and damage to the skin is minimal.
PRXT33 is suitable for all skin types, during all seasons due to it not needing to be peeled, and the extremely effective results are seen after just one treatment. The additional tightening and lifting effects then continue long term due to the production of new collagen.
Counteracting the flaccidity of the skin and rejuvenating the skin are just two benefits of this peel; it’s also been proven to profoundly improve the appearance of depigmentation, stretch marks and melasma. Without the use of needles and peeling, you will be given impeccable results, especially in conjunction with other treatments such as radiofrequency or Collagen Induction Therapy. This is what makes it fantastic for helping improve the appearance of the skin on your hands, tightening the skin while also removing signs of ageing like age-spots. It targets all aspects of ageing and tackles them in one treatment, leaving you with transformative results!
Skin Boosters for Ageing Hands
Skin Boosters work to boost our skin’s hydration levels significantly, delivering moisturisation and improving the skin’s texture and appearance. Skin Boosters are an injectable treatment as a Hyaluronic Acid-based gel is injected into the dermis, leaving the skin firm, smooth and radiant.
HA is already found in our bodies as this natural chemical keeps our skin hydrated and youthful. Like collagen, we too produce less HA as we age; so by getting a skin booster, you are essentially replenishing these levels. Our Restylane and Juvaderm Skin Boosters are the only revitalising boosters on the market. With their stabilised Hyaluronic Acid concentrate, they are able to ensure long-term effects.
By replenishing our levels of HA, skin boosters are turning back the time in our hands. Our skin appears more youthful and tight, as the HA hydrates the skin and improves its texture. If you suffer from dry and rough hands as a result of ageing, then this treatment is perfect for you!
Skin Boosters are a course treatment- three sessions are advised 2-4 weeks apart. The microinjections wake the skin’s fibroblasts which encourage production of the skin’s natural moisturisers. By doing so, cell change over commences, leaving the skin revitalised, plump, smooth and glowing. Begin your skin booster journey to beautiful skin by having them injected every six months.
Fillers for Ageing Hands
Dermal fillers are perfect for lifting, rejuvenating and sculpting the skin. If you suffer from ageing hands with sagging skin and wrinkles, then fillers can help ‘fill out’ the skin, smooth wrinkles and turn back time!
As we age, our skin sags and causes wrinkles, largely due to the fact that the underlying collagen and fat beneath begins to break down as we age. Collagen is essential for structuring the skin and keeping it tight, firm and youthful. Fat helps shape the face in an aesthetically pleasing way. So, when these components break down, our skin sags as it no longer has this underlying strong structure. The volume loss is a natural part of ageing, but not everyone likes this appearance.
Dermal fillers can fight against wrinkles and fine lines by adding more volume back to the skin. They don’t have to be injected in the face as many people think, as they can also be used on hands to help smooth wrinkles and lift sagging skin. Fillers can produce results similar to surgery without the risk or downtime, and can help you look as much as 10 years younger after one treatment!
