The hands are, like our faces, a reflection of our age. In the era of cutting-edge aesthetic medicine, hands need no longer betray a patient’s age. Marks of time on our hands: brown marks and crepey skin. Women, but also men, pay particular attention to the appearance and care of their hands. With the passage of time, the skin on the hands becomes finer leaving bones and veins more visible. Associated with the appearance of numerous brown marks, the hands have an aged and crepey appearance that doesn’t match that of the patient’s face or their spirit.
Treatments to address aging hands
A variety of treatments now exist, in order to restore freshness and volume to the shape of the hands, by erasing the signs of aging such as wrinkles, marks and the so-called “cigarette paper” appearance of the skin.
Restoring volume and hydration to the hands using hyaluronic acid and collageno-inductor calcium gel
The injection of hyaluronic acid and calcium gel allows us to restore lost volume, but also to restore hydration and freshness to the skin on the hands. In combination with hyaluronic acid injections, the doctors in the Paris and London clinics can – if suitable for the patient – suggest using injections of a collagen booster such as calcium hydroxyapatite. This will actively stimulate your skin’s production of collagen and, after a few weeks, give them a smoothed and plumped appearance.
Hand treatment using the skinflash fractional laser to erase brown marks and scars
To revitalise the appearance of the hands, in addition to hyaluronic acid or calcium gel injections, the Paris and London clinics can also offer you treatments using the skinflash fractional laser, which, depending on the wavelength used, can be used to resurface the skin on the hands by erasing imperfections (scars and wrinkles), but also to remove brown marks often caused by sun exposure.
The treatment process of rejuvenating the hands using hyaluronic acid, calcium gel or the skinflash fractional laser: quick and efficient
A session of treatment for rejuvenating the hands using hyaluronic acid, calcium gel or the skinflash fractional laser takes 15 minutes on average, according to the option chosen and the requirements of the individual patient.
An indispensable diagnostic exam of the hands
Each session of hand rejuvenation starts with a detailed diagnostic exam of the area to be treated by the doctor. Once the diagnosis has been established, the treatment decided upon and consent received, the medical assistant will start with an anti-septic wash on the skin before applying an anaesthetic cream in order to make the treatment for rejuvenating the hands using hyaluronic acid, calcium gel or the skinflash fractional laser perfectly painless. For hyaluronic acid or calcium gel injections, the doctor marks the different points to inject.
Totally painless hand injections
Hyaluronic acid or calcium gel injections are carried out using a painless micro-needle in a few specific places as determined by the doctor in order to achieve the desired effect.
For treatment with the skinflash fractional laser, the doctor supplies the patient with protective glasses and then carries out several passes of the skinflash laser on their skin. Some localised red marks often appear after skinflash laser treatment, but these will quickly disappear in just a few days.
At the end of the treatment the assistant systematically applies a refreshing and moisturising hyaluronic acid mask to calm the treated skin.
No major side effects caused by hyaluronic acid or calcium gel
The patient can then immediately go about their day, as hyaluronic acid or calcium gel injections do not cause any major undesirable side effects and therefore there is no recovery time.
An immediate and lasting rejuvenating effect on the hands
The rejuvenating effects on the hands after hyaluronic acid, calcium gel or skinflash fractional laser are immediately visible and improve over the next three weeks. The effects last around nine months.
A lasting effect that is visible on the skin for several years
Good to know
Even several years after a rejuvenating treatment on the hands with hyaluronic acid, calcium gel or skinflash fractional laser, the skin is still plumped and smoothed.
