Keep them guessing
‘If you want to know a woman’s age, look at her hands’.
Face and neck aside, your hands are the most visible unclothed area of your body. This constant exposure to the sun and elements is a factor in why hands show the signs of aging more than other parts of the body!
With that in mind, it’s no surprise that hand rejuvenation treatments are now increasingly sought after to hide the visible signs of aging.
The skin on your hands is naturally thin, but as you become older, especially post-menopause, your hands deplete in volume and fat. They lose the dermal elasticity and atrophy of the subcutaneous tissue, becoming translucent and shrivelled so, veins, tendons and bony structures become more apparent as well as the obvious lines and wrinkles on the skin too. The loss of muscle bulk between the fingers creates hollowing, which in turn also makes hands look bony. Dark spots also start becoming more visible and in fact, sun-damaged, wrinkled, veiny hands can make you look older than you really are.
However, we live in a day and age where medical aesthetics is so advanced and so safe, there are quick and efficient procedures with minimal to no downtime available, to get away from the intrinsic ageing of the hands. Aged hands are best improved by restoring the volume of soft tissue.
At Allure Aesthetics, we use various Dermal Fillers to reverse the tell-tale signs of aging and restore volume and a youthful appearance to skin. It’s a non-surgical, long-lasting and safe method to rejuvenate your hands. Our Lead Nurse and Clinic Director, Roisin, has extensive experience in advanced injectables and is well-known for her careful and meticulous approach while delivering natural-looking results. Roisin will take time to go through a consultation with you, to understand what your main concerns are and then help you to decide on a treatment plan.
Ellansé™ to regenerate your hands.
Young skin has volume, elasticity and strength due to its natural collagen. As we age, the amount of collagen we produce slows down drastically.
Ellanse is a revolutionary filler as it is a bio-stimulator, which means it not only allows us to re-volumise the face, neck and hands like a traditional “Hyaluronic Acid” dermal filler, but thanks to its unique properties, it also strongly stimulates your body to produce new collagen in the dermis areas it is distributed to, treating the underlying causes of aging. This gives you added skin rejuvenation. It’s almost like two treatments in one, where the results are beneficial both instantly and longer-term!
