I always remember my mom saying that we have to take great care of our hands and neck because age is seen there. How right is this statement
When we talk about signs of aging we are concerned with the face, the rooster cocks, the folds around the lips, that is, the face in general. However, it was not given much importance to create treatments that help us also delay the aging of our hands, which as the creator of the enamels Joaquín Manuel 7 Free Nail Polish Collection always mentions, “are our letter of introduction”.
Fortunately science continues to advance and an effective treatment has finally been created that will help us keep our hands young and beautiful.
We spoke with Paula Christiansen, a facial and body beauty specialist and owner of the Mint Wellness Center in Miami, who introduced us to this wonderful treatment called LED light therapy and clarified doubts about the aging process of our hands.
List the reasons why our hands start to look our age
The hands are one of the parts of the body most exposed to the sun's rays and that is the main reason for skin aging. Ultraviolet radiation produces a modification in components such as collagen and elastin, which are responsible for providing firmness and elasticity. On the other hand, the constant exposure of the hands to water and chemicals such as detergents, shampoo, etc., also influence the premature aging of our hands.
What are the main characteristics of an aging hands?
The hands are one of the most evident areas as indicative of the age of a person, with the passage of time the skin becomes thinner, loses volume, the veins, tendons, bones, and spots caused by Sun.
What treatments are on the market that help delay and reverse aging of the hands?
There are several on the market, one of them is paraffin that helps, but the results are slower and not as remarkable as our absolute favorite and recommended LED light therapy.
Which do you recommend more?
Definitely LED light therapy treatment.
Why do you think this is so effective?
It is so because Led light therapy offers different types of lights and allows you to change the photodynamics to penetrate the seven layers of skin and thus deeply hydrate and reactivate the production of collagen and restore firmness, elasticity and a smooth and youthful look to the skin.
How long does it take to start seeing results?
I can tell you that from the first session you can see results in smoother hands, with uniform color, hydrated and toned.
How often should they undergo treatment?
My recommendation is every two to six months. Each case is particularly analyzed to define how many treatments should be applied, since this will depend on the photo aging of the skin and the damage that is to be reversed.
Who are the best candidates for this type of treatment?
We always recommend our patients not to wait to see skin damage to treat it. Prevention is the best medicine, it is recommended to start taking care of not only the skin of the hands but the skin in general from the age of 21.
