The hands are one of the most conspicuous parts of the body, which means that they can be a telltale sign of ageing.
Our poor hands are on show all the time and also exposed to the elements and a host of cleaning products. Yet they don’t receive the same loving care as our faces. Forget cleansing, exfoliating, moisturiser and serum – the hands are more likely to get a quick scrub and a dollop of hand cream if you’re lucky.
However, clients who invest in anti-ageing treatments for their faces are increasingly aware that the hands don’t necessarily get the same attention.
A youthful hand will look smooth and hydrated. Skin will be firm and there will be no visible veins, tendons or protruding bones.
An ageing hand can look wrinkly and dry. The skin may look loose and baggy. One of the most noticeable markers is protruding veins and prominent tendons/bones, giving an almost skeletal appearance, especially for patients who are naturally slim.
The development of new dermal filler products has meant that hand rejuvenation can now be accomplished quickly and safely. Using advanced techniques, clinicians at SkinViva are able to gently restore volume in the skin to present a more youthful appearance:
This treatment is not for amateurs and requires skill and knowledge on behalf of the injector.
At SkinViva, all aesthetic clinicians are medically trained and have extensive anatomical knowledge, so that they full understand all elements of the treatment:
Juvéderm VOLUMA injectable dermal fillers are based on hyaluronic acid filler, which is based on a naturally occurring substance within the skin which retains water. Hyaluronic acid depletes with age, which can make the skin appear thinner. Replenishing that lost volume with injectable dermal fillers gives immediate results which will last for 12-24 months.
When treatment wears off, it can be repeated to maintain the benefit.
SkinViva was established in 2008 and has an excellent reputation for offering high quality skin treatments in the North West. The team of Aesthetic Practitioners is led by fully qualified doctor and Clinical Director, Dr Tim Pearce MB ChB BSc (Hons) MRCGP and operates to very high standards.
Their team offer free consultations at their main clinic in Manchester.
A consultation is always required prior to any cosmetic treatment and this is arranged with an experienced aesthetic clinician. The same individual would carry out treatment and this can normally be done at the same appointment if required. Consultations are free of charge and there is no obligation to go ahead. SkinViva clinicians will give honest, expert advice on what to expect and reserve the right to refuse treatment where it is not in the patient’s best interests. After consultation, SkinViva clinicians can offer a range of cosmetic and anti-ageing non-surgical treatments.
