You’ve seen it before on the red carpet. A youthful-looking star is being interviewed and the camera pans down to her hands. Immediately, the average eye can see that the hands give one’s age away. Our skin gets thinner, age spots can appear, a ropey look with bulging veins and even crepey skin can ruin our look. There is a solution, and it’s called hand rejuvenation via IPL. It’s safe and fast with zero downtime, and the results are impressive.
Sun Damage is the Biggest Culprit
Let’s be frank; our hands are constantly exposed to the elements, and the sun does a lot of damage to the skin. It is true that your hands can tell a lot about your age, and it happens earlier than you think. Skin care experts say that by the time you reach your 20s, your hands are starting to look older. A thick, moisturizing cream overnight will help keep them soft and supple, but if you really want to rejuvenate the skin on the back of your hands, sophisticated technology is required to repair thin, lax skin and hide noticeable veins.
Intense Pulsed Light
IPL is better known as intense pulsed light and performs by transmitting a broad spectrum of light through a small handpiece gently placed over the skin. It converts into thermal energy to zap abnormal cells like age spots and sun damage and leave behind only healthy tissue. IPL encourages the production of fresh collagen and elastin to firm and add fullness to the skin. New collagen also fills in wrinkles and smooths any crepiness associated with aging hands. One treatment session lasts about 30 minutes, and then you can return to your daily round of activity.
Enjoy Permanent Results
Your aesthetic specialist can recommend a customized treatment plan for you, but generally, hand rejuvenation with IPL consists of one session monthly. For optimal results, five sessions are recommended, but some clients are satisfied after only two or three IPL sessions.
They notice younger-looking hands with smooth, thicker skin, and the effects are long-lasting and even permanent if you continue to take care of your hands. Sunscreen is always advised, and applying an effective moisturizer with glycolic acid at bedtime can help you maintain ageless hands.
If you’re concerned about your hands giving your age away, you’re not alone. There are several ways to address the issue, but hand rejuvenation with our IPL device is one of the best solutions out there.
