Hand rejuvenation
In order to get your hands looking their best, they must be rejuvenated both inside and out.  This typically involves the use of dermal fillers to make them plumper, alongside light or laser therapy to eliminate environmental damage on the back of the hands.

IPL for hand rejuvenation
IPL is an effective treatment for skin discoloration, as it can eliminate blemishes such as sun spots, brown spots, and broken capillaries. The procedure is relatively painless, but a topical numbing cream is applied at the start to help reduce any discomfort.

IPL works by targeting the darker pigments in the skin, which are able to absorb the wavelengths of light. The heat then breaks down and destroys the pigmented skin cells, without affecting the normal cells around it.

How many IPL treatments do I need?
It typically takes a series of 3-4 IPL treatments spaced about 3-4 weeks apart to restore normal skin tone to the hands, and rejuvenate their appearance.
