As we age, our hands become one of the earliest visual signifiers. The skin on the surface of our hands, just like our face, reveals signs of aging, including those dreaded wrinkles, dark spots, and thinning skin. But don’t fret, ladies and gentlemen! Aesthetic treatments can be used to rejuvenate the appearance of your hands, offering a more youthful and fuller look.
At Mint & Needle, we offer three main treatments utilized for rejuvenating the delicate skin on your hands. These include: Intense Pulse Light (IPL), Hand Fillers, and Resurfacing. If you aren’t sure which of these are right for you, you’ve come to the right place! Below, we break down each service and its unique benefits on your hands.
- Intense Pulse Light (IPL) utilizes IPL technology for rejuvenation, vascularity, hyperpigmentation, and smoothing of the skin. IPL is not a laser treatment. Instead, it uses a broad spectrum light therapy treatment that targets red and brown pigments, making it particularly useful as a hand rejuvenation treatment for broken blood vessels, age spots, and other pigmentation of the hands. IPL works wonders in reversing sun discoloration from the summer heat, and it’s not just for hands.
- Hand Fillers may help those who observe a loss in volume of the skin of their hands, which may appear "sunken" — another sign of aging. Mint & Needle's treatment includes use of an injectable biostimulator to encourage your body's own collagen production. Fillers can be combined with IPL for a full coverage treatment.
- Resurfacing is a treatment that uses fractionated laser technology to improve skin texture, skin tone, and fine-to-moderate lines all without damaging the skin’s surface. For hands specifically, resurfacing can help give a more youthful look by diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the skin.
We encourage those who are interested to schedule a consultation with our specialists at Mint & Needle to discuss your specific hand rejuvenation goals. Treatments may be combined for maximum coverage and results.
