Hands are beautiful because they allow us to be creative and we can tell a lot just by looking at someone’s hands their age. With constant exposure to the ravages of sun, ageing, work and life in general, our hands can show a different story that is perhaps being concealed from our faces (take Madonna or Sarah Jessica Parker for instance, who look young but their hands tell another story).
Audrey Hepburn is one of my all time favourite female figures (apart from my mum of course). She is well known for her grace, beauty, and love for humanity. I remember seeing her tiny wrist and beautiful hands grace across the screen. If you’re a fan, you will be a fan of the ‘Audrey Hepburn Hand Rejuvenation Program’.
It is a combination of PRP which increases elasticity and collagen growth, chemical peel and light therapy to rid the hands of sunspots, and redness. Then finally a hyaluronic dermal filler to fill and plump up skeletal-like hands.
Your hands can finally sparkle like the jewellery you like to wear. Enjoy showing them off!
Together with in-clinic treatments, I would advise to always wear sunscreen on your hands to protect the skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays which can accelerate ageing. I recommend Heliocare SPF 50.
Treatments for the hands are:
- Dermal Fillers to restore volume
- Medical Peels to reduce pigmentation and restore vitality
- Medical Needling to rejuvenate the skin
Frequently Asked Questions
How do fillers and PRP work on the hands?
Collagen and Elastin is what gives volume, flexibility and strength to a healthy, younger skin. As part of the ageing process, your own natural collagen breaks down, diminishing volume and elasticity. This loss of elasticity and volume results in skin laxity – which robs your skin of its youthful, fresh appearance.
How will my hands look after my treatment?
You may have slight redness and swelling from the treatment but you will see the results instantly. Swelling and redness will disappear in about 24 – 48 hours.
Does it hurt?
Using a blunt cannula or special needle, boluses of RegenPRP or dermal filler is injected into the back of the hands, shaped to bring back volume and youth to the treated area. There might be a slight discomfort but this is minimised by the use of local anaesthetic cream which is applied before the treatment.
When will I see the results?
Results last between 12 to 18 months depending on the volume replaced in the hands.
How safe is it?
Both RegenPRP and dermal fillers have long been used for aesthetic treatments and are safe to be used at the back of the hands. However, with any other procedure, there is a small risk of bruising, swelling and infection which is minimised before and afterwards with several tested interventions.
How often do I need to repeat the treatment?
Depending on how much volume is replaced and on your lifestyle, the treatment may require several sessions to achieve the maximum results. The treatment can be repeated after 12 to 18 months.
Please note that all treatments will require initial consultation to assess suitability and there is an initial consultation fee. For selected cosmetic procedures, this is redeemable against services rendered.
