Hand Rejuvenation – IPL
Getting older is a fact of life – your face, neck and hands can be very unforgiving. But thanks especially to Face, Body and Hand rejuvenation, your IPL (Intense Pulse Light) treatment and other medical-grade treatments, looking older than you feel no longer has to be. When it comes to well-researched patients, or those considering rejuvenating or anti-ageing treatments, many have one big wish at the top of their list. It’s simple:
Younger Looking Skin.
A number of options are available hoping to improve the appearance of your skin, especially your hands. The supermarket and pharmacy are full of products claiming to turn back the clock giving you younger-looking skin! Likewise, both the internet and late-night-infomercials bombard consumers with further promises.
Just apply this magic potion at night and you’ll have the tight, rejuvenated skin you had in your youth… Sadly, many of these products over promise and under deliver – period.
In spite of products that don’t work well, the demand for skin rejuvenation remains strong. Perhaps it’s due to more baby boomers noticing every brown spot or other superficial irregularities on their face and hands?
Maybe it’s due to the competitive job market and an older worker’s desire to appear youthful and full of energy? It’s probably a combination of these factors and many others that make skin rejuvenation such a strong product offering.
The demand for skin rejuvenation for all parts of the body is increasing. Cosmetic surgeries and Medispas, understand the use of proven technology and active serums to rejuvenate and slow down the ageing process. Your hand rejuvenation treatments are amongst the favourites.
Why hand rejuvenation with IPL?
Your hands are often one of the first things people notice upon meeting you. Repairing sun damage to the back of your hands, with a series of hand rejuvenation treatments, can contribute to a more youthful look.
The gentle, non-ablative treatments use broad-spectrum light to treat the hands—and virtually anywhere that sun damage shows.
How does IPL work?
The Intense Pulse Light emits predetermined settings of light while the handpiece is in close proximity to the skin. The light is attracted to colour setting applicable to the colour red are used for vascular concerns and a brown when treating pigmentation.
The process is ideal for patients with active lifestyles because the procedure requires no downtime and has a low risk of side effects.
Recovery from Hand IPL
After your hand rejuvenation, the backs of your hands will feel warm and sensitive to heat. So for the first 2 hours keep your hands away from heat and warm water. The pigmentation will darken and the outcome will definitely look worse before it looks great. You may require 2-4 sessions, depending on the severity of the sun damage.
How long will the results from Hand Rejuvenation last?
It depends on how much sun exposure your skin gets after your IPL treatments. If you do not use sunscreen, then underlying issues, whether they are redness or brown spots, will return. However, if you look after your skin and wear sunscreen, your skin will continue to look good. Twice yearly maintenance treatments are recommended.
So next time you get your face treated, don’t forget your hands!
