The anti-ageing routine our hands deserve

Most of us take very good care of our faces, applying sunscreen every day and layering on anti-ageing products at night, but do we pay the same attention to our hands? If not, they’re likely to bear the effects of visible premature ageing. Read how to the neglect with our experts at Skin Renewal.

The anti-ageing routine our hands deserve 1

Turn back the hands of time

Prevention is obviously better than cure but if the damage is done, there’s still a lot you can do about it. Skin Renewal offers a very popular 3D Hand Rejuvenation treatment. An easy, virtually painless ‘lunch time’ non-surgical treatment, it involves three clinical applications, but no down time.

The first step is to apply a topical aesthetic before a highly-skilled doctor administers mesotherapy – micro-injections that deliver an anti-ageing mix directly to the middle layer of your skin. What’s in the juice? A very effective blend of skin rejuvenating growth factors, moisture-boosting hyaluronic acid and collagen-stimulating peptides. You’ll see an improvement straight away, but the real results become visible over time as your body’s own collagen supply, which is stimulated, begins to multiply.

Step number two? This is where a super-hydrating dermal filler, Juvederm Hydrate, comes in. It’s injected directly into the areas where your skin is looking dehydrated and crepey. The hyaluronic acid in the filler binds your skin’s natural moisture content and can attract up to a thousand times its weight in water and the result is immediate.

The final step
is injecting a volumising dermal filler to instantly ‘thicken’ up any areas that are looking thin or bony. Again, the effect is instant. You’ll leave the office with plumper, more youthful-looking hands!

Help your hands at home

Whether you opt for a 3D Hand Rejuvenation treatment or not, it’s vitally important that you take care of your hands at home. This means applying a good high sun protection factor sunscreen every time you set food outside. Heliocare Gel SPF 50 is a top pick as, aside from its SPF, it also contains potent antioxidants and doesn’t feel greasy in the least.

You should also invest in a good anti-ageing hand cream, something like velvety-feeling yet fast-absorbing Dr Duve Lifting and Firming Hand & Décolleté cream. It contains collagen-activating growth factors and hydrating hyaluronic acid.
