Frequently, interest in cosmetic improvements mostly addresses the facial skin, while hands that are in fact the most obvious sign of ageing are sometimes ignored. As time passes by and the subcutaneous tissue diminishes, the skin on the back of our hands becomes thinner, wrinkled and covered with brown spots, losing its fullness and firmness, the arms beginning to reveal more acutely pronounced tendons and joints. In addition, colour changes due to more obvious veins, which can provide a bluish and sunken appearance to our hands. Besides the natural ageing process, these changes also take place because of their lack of protection and exposure to harmful sun rays or cold.

Hand skin rejuvenation treatments give them and to you in particular, a younger appearance. Medical technology has created a variety of hand rejuvenation treatments. Aesthetic doctors at Renew Skin & Health Clinic in Leamington Spa constantly supervise treatments of hand wrinkle removal, using the most effective and the safest techniques to correct this problem.

To remedy the lack of volume in hand skin, we use the same dermal filler treatments as for facial skin rejuvenation because they are based on the same principle, namely to restore damaged skin structures. We speak here of two dermal fillers: Restylane and Juvederm. Because the ideal filling substance in hand skin rejuvenation must be 100% compatible with the body, hypoallergenic, non-irritating and non-toxic, our specialists’ choice of Restylane and Juvederm injections is obvious. Both products are based on synthetic hyaluronic acid, which is completely biocompatible with your body where it is also found in its natural state, being one of the main factors of skin hydration as it retains water in its deeper layers acting like a sponge.

Restylane is a transparent, biodegradable gel of non-animal synthesis based on hyaluronic acid. Thus, this treatment eliminates allergic reactions and pre-testing. The cosmetic procedure in itself is very quick and efficient. Restylane injections last from a couple of minutes to maximum half an hour according to the size of the targeted area. During the procedure, the specialist doctor injects tiny quantities of Restylane in the skin using fine needles thus the procedure being painless. Regarding hand wrinkles, this substance gives volume to the skin layers that are situated immediately under them, elevating and smoothing them. Injections are made in the spaces located in the middle of the metacarpus (between the second and third and between the third and fourth finger). The amount of filler to be injected is then manipulated manually so that it is evenly distributed in a thin layer covering the whole surface of the back of your hand. Results can be immediately observed and maintained for a period of 4 to 6 months.

Juvederm is another fine consistency gel based on hyaluronic acid used for the reduction of deep wrinkles. In the case of those appearing at the bottom of and on the phalangeal joints, featuring slightly more enlarged molecules of hyaluronic acid than Restylane. The effect is instant, patients being able to notice immediate improvements in the epidermis. The procedure is similar to the Restylane treatment, lasts approximately 15 minutes and the downtime is minimal. The treatment with Juvederm is achieved with the help of fine needle microinjections applied under the skin to give volume or correct scarce quantities of it within the aged hand skin.

If it’s your first visit, one of the doctors at Renew Skin & Health Clinic will examine your medical history, ask you about possible allergies or ongoing treatments, giving you all the necessary information about this procedure. Immediately after the procedure, just like in the case of Restylane, the doctor will be needed to massage the targeted area in order to level the applied compound. Side effects are minimised and disappear after maximum 2 days from the procedure. Immediate results last approximately 6 months after which you should repeat the treatment to maintain the same fresh tonus of the skin.

To ensure a firmer and more hydrated skin on your hands for a longer period of time, Renew Skin & Health Clinic developed these treatments that restore and maintain your hands’ youthful smoothness and volume. The procedures are easy, quick, requiring no anaesthesia as they are painless (the hand skin is rougher than the facial skin), while side effects and downtime are minimised. Rejuvenation treatments give fullness to bony hands, improve textural irregularities and thicken the skin by increasing collagen production, offering you the chance to enjoy younger, smoother and more beautiful hands that will never betray your real age.
