Ageing hands

Typically, the first signs of ageing hands start in the 40s, and 50s with the appearance of age spots also referred to as liver or sunspots. These are flat areas of dark pigmentation that often appear on the face, chest, arms, shoulder, and hands – in other words, those areas most exposed to the sun. They are caused by the production of excess melanin in the skin as a direct result of exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation.

In people who are in their 50s and 60s, the skin starts to become thinner, and a loss of volume and fat causes the underlying bones, tendons, and veins to become more prominent. In women, depleting oestrogen levels resulting from menopause will cause the skin to be less plump and fleshy, making them far more vulnerable to the ageing process.

There are non-invasive hand rejuvenation treatments that will help to restore volume, rehydrate and plump out the skin to hide the veiny and bony prominences and the result will be very natural looking.

Using a range of dermal fillers from Belotero Soft, Profhilo and Radiesse® we are able to rejuvenate hands by boosting, hydrating and tightening sagging skin. Radiesse® also acts as a collagen stimulator so results are long-lasting and progressive.

To protect and maintain the quality of the skin in the hands Dr Mittal recommends that you should also use a hand cream with high sun-protecting factor as part of your daily care regime and do remember that even on the coldest of days your hands are still exposed to the sun’s harmful rays.

Ageing hands prices start from £210 per ml (Profhilo from £270 per 1ml)

How many treatments will I need?

To get the best results we recommend at least three treatments at the end of each month for each hand. Once you have had your first round of treatment, we recommend that you repeat the treatment every six months, depending on your skin’s condition.

Is there any downtime?

There is little or no downtime so you can go back to your normal activities straight away.

Will the treatment hurt?

Many of our patients at the Hunar Clinic have found the procedure more comfortable than expected and you may experience slight redness or minor bruising around the treatment areas after having an injection.
