Be ready for your “surprise” engagement ring this Holiday Season by having Instagram-worthy hands.
There will be lots of memory-making photos of the newly engaged couple – and the beautiful ring! Do you have a feeling you are going to be receiving a ring over the holidays? Are your hands ready for all that spotlight?
There’s no question; your hands reveal a great deal about you. Sun damage, nutritional imbalance, your age, your interests, your attention to self-care, and your overall health show on your hands.
You use your hands to communicate, and your hands are often the first part of you that people touch when they meet you.
Is your skin rough or soft? Is it blemished or smooth? Plump or wrinkled?
In this era, the average age for couples to marry is 33. They’ve had time to travel, to build careers, and to prepare themselves to settle down with someone special.
However, beginning as early as your thirties, the backs of your hands start to show signs of aging. With decrease in collagen, the volume is lost, and wrinkles appear. Photodamage from the sun leaves hyperpigmentation and sunspots on your skin.
At LiveYoung Medical, we have solutions and treatments for aging hands that will give you the confidence to show off your new engagement ring.
One of the most effective treatments for restoring youthful elasticity and plumpness to aging hands is Juvéderm® Volite. Part of the world-renowned Juvéderm® family of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, Volite is an injectable gel that, unlike typical dermal fillers, works on improving the condition and quality of the skin.
This skin-quality correcting injectable treatment visibly improves elasticity and hydration in addition to the appearance of crepiness, roughness, and dryness. Results are stunning and last for 6 – 9 months. Treatment is quick and easy. Your comfort level is managed well by topical numbing cream which is applied for a few minutes before your treatment begins.
IPL (intense Pulsed Light) treatments reverse photodamage (sunspots, age spots, and hyperpigmentation). In as few as three sessions that last about 15 minutes each, your hands will be much more uniform in colour.
Fractional resurfacing with SmartXide DOT:
DOT Therapy is a safe and effective procedure for the treatment of fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, acne scars, stubborn pigmentation, enlarged pores, rough texture, and skin laxity. It works by breaking down old, dysfunctional collagen and stimulating the production of new, robust collagen. This CO2 resurfacing laser treatment can lighten deep, stubborn pigment that IPL cannot reach.
Essential Skin Care:
We take time to protect and nourish the skin on our face, neck, and décolleté, but often forget to care for our hands.
The skin on the backs of our hands is more susceptible to UV damage than any other area. Add to that the daily harm caused by hand sanitizers, detergents, household cleansers, and elements in your work environment, and you have a recipe for disaster.
Mitigate the damage and improve your chances for smooth, youthful, blemish-free hands with these tips:
- Use a retinol before bed to promote cellular turnover on the backs of your hands.
- Slather on a rich peptide cream at night to build collagen and protect from dryness
- Use an antioxidant serum to protect your hands against the elements
- Always wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen. Every day.
Christmas is the most popular time of year for proposals. If you think this might be YOUR year, make sure your hands are as beautiful as your new ring is sure to be!
