Skin Rejuvenation for hands using IPL
Getting older is a fact of life, but thanks to 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 a rejuvenating or anti-ageing treatments, many have one big wish at the top of their list. It’s simply:
Younger Looking Skin
A number of options are available hoping to improve their appearance. The grocery store and pharmacy is full of products that claim to turn back the clock and give the buyer 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, rejuvenating skin you had in your youth… Sadly, many of these products overpromise 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?
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 technology as well as facial and body treatments and serums to rejuvenation and slow down the ageing process.
Why rejuvenate the hands?
Your hands are often one of the first things people notice upon meeting you. Repairing sun damage to the hands with a series of IPL laser 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 (IPL) emits a predetermined settings of light while the hand piece 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.
How long will the results from an IPL last?
It depends on how much sun exposure your skin gets after your IPL treatments. If you are in the sun a lot and do not use sunscreen, the underlying issues, whether they are redness or brown spots, will return. But if you take good care of your skin and keep it protected from the sun, your skin will continue to look good with 6 monthly maintenance treatments.
So next time you get your face treated, don’t forget your hands!
