‘We know this, but sometimes we forget: the hands can betray our age.’ – this is how Vogue® starts a conversation about this important area.
Loss of volume (making the veins very visible), loss of tone (try the pinch test) and pigmentation (sun or age spots): these are the main enemies.
The solution? Well, the non-surgical option for loss of volume are the hyaluronic acid fillers (Juvederm®, Restylane®, Teosyal®), that can replenish the loss of fat, softening contours and the appearance of veins and tendons.
To improve skin tone and texture, Mesotherapy can intensify skin hydration and nourishment. PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma (or ‘ Dracula Therapy’), in which your own growth factors are injected into your skin, boosting the production of collagen and elastin is another alternative. Laser can also be used to boost skin rejuvenation by stimulating collagen tightening and production.
Lasers or chemical skin peels are key to reducing pigmentation changes and to even out skin complexion.
Prevention is also a key part. So avoid smoking and sun exposure. Poor nutrition and not drinking enough water will certainly slow down the process. For any of the procedures mentioned in the article, talk to Dr Joney by calling 020 7043 0748.
