When considering anti-aging care rituals, something that we frequently see as a medical spa is patients who have foregone the inclusion of their hands in their daily skincare and sun protection routine. Especially here in sunny St. Pete, Hand Rejuvenation is a hot treatment due to how frequently hands are exposed to the elements and how quickly the hands show age as a result of that. Today we’ll discuss how IPL Hand Rejuvenation allows patients to turn back the hands of time and restore a youthful appearance to their hands.
What is IPL Hand Rejuvenation?
IPL Hand Rejuvenation is a treatment using Intense Pulsed Light to reduce the visible signs of aging on the hands. It can improve concerns like skin laxity, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation to reveal smoother, more toned skin on the hands.
How does it work?
IPL Hand Rejuvenation harnesses the power of Intense Pulsed Light Energy to target and treat these areas over a course of several sessions. Typically, 3-6 sessions are recommended at a schedule of about 4-6 weeks apart. Discomfort associated with the treatment is minimal and you may begin to see results as quickly as two weeks after your treatment.
Is it right for me?
While there are several forms of Hand Rejuvenation available, IPL Hand Rejuvenation is best for clients looking to improve laxity or discoloration. IPL is not the best solution for volume loss but there are other forms of Hand Rejuvenation that can address that as well. Speak to your provider about your concerns to receive the best recommendation on which service is right for you.
Ultimately, while we are happy to have treatment options for the visible signs of aging on the hands, it is more important to us that patients practice prevention to preserve the health and safety of the skin on their hands and all other frequently exposed areas of skin. Whether you are pre or post-treatment, it is important to remember to moisturize, exfoliate, and protect your hands from the sun on a regular basis. Prevention is the most effective anti-aging tool that we can employ regardless of what other treatments we may take advantage of.
