Don’t let your hands let you down

Posted on 09 Feb, 2012

The preoccupation with remaining youthful-looking for as long as possible is not a new one in our societies, and as new technologies are developed we are able more and more to turn the clock back in terms of our appearance.

Although prevention is always better than cure, there are now many treatments available to combat those signs of ageing and repair any damage sustained by the skin. One area that can be a dead giveaway but is often overlooked is our hands.

Hands are often exposed to sunlight without being protected, and as a result, the skin can display signs of damage. The skin can easily become dehydrated, and as we age and the body doesn’t regulate pigmentation production as well, liver or age spots can also start to appear.

For slim people, veins can become prominent, as there is insufficient body fat to conceal them. This is often a comment directed at celebrities such as Angelina Jolie and Madonna, who was seen wearing fingerless gloves at a recent film première.

Age spots can be removed using IPL, which will restore a more youthful appearance. The IPL causes the hyper pigmented spots to fade away, ensuring that the appearance of your hands doesn’t let you down.
