When considering anti-ageing treatments, we often only focus on treatments for the face. However, some of the ill-forgotten areas can give away one’s true age regardless of how youthful their face appears.
Our hands are one of the biggest culprits with a loss of volume leading to protruding bones and veins, and pigmentation due to constant exposure. To rejuvenate your hands and bring them back to a youthful state, we rely on our ResurFX treatments. ResurFX is the most advanced technology in laser skin resurfacing.
ResurFX is a non-ablative fractional resurfacing laser. Treatments work to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin fibres in the deep layers of the skin. This treatment can reduce photo damaged skin & scar tissue on the face, neck, chest as well as hands. This treatment will reveal younger-looking, more refined skin and dramatically reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scarring and age spots.
To combat the loss of volume, dermal filler is used. Injected just under the skin, the filler restores lost volume to give your hands a plump, youthful appearance.
ResurFX treatments utilise non-ablative laser technology, meaning the surface of the skin is left intact, focusing the treatment on the deeper layers of the skin. This results in less downtime and reduced discomfort. To ensure our patients are as comfortable as possible, we do provide topical anaesthetic, though most patients don’t report any major discomfort.
The ResurFX treatments often result in some mild redness and swelling, lasting for up to 2 days. Most patients describe their downtime as like a sunburn. Over the following two weeks, skin will be exfoliating resulting in ‘micr-scabs’ which may feel similar to sand. Mild itching, peeling, flaking and dryness are also common post-treatment. Dermal fillers have little or no downtime, though you may experience some redness immediately after and bruising for up to a week post-treatment (bruising varies person to person).
A series of 3-5 treatments may be recommended for your individual skin concerns.
