When it comes to reversing the signs of aging, many people concentrate on improving their skin tone and texture in the facial region. Some extend their attention and care to the neck area as well. But unless the hands are also taken care of in equal measure, they can give away the telltale signs of aging, making all of your other efforts seem like a big waste! Finding the right cosmetic treatments to address this issue starts with understanding the cause itself.

The Aging Process and Hand Rejuvenation

Elastin and collagen are the two key proteins responsible for giving skin its firmness and elasticity. Hyaluronic acid retains moisture and gives volume to the skin and provides it a plump youthful look. As the years go by, the production of these components begins to slow down. Excessive exposure to the sun not only contributes to this degrading production but also hastens the degradation of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. As a result, your skin will begin to sags and develop wrinkles.

Age spots start appearing due to localized accumulation of melanin. In addition, the loss of fat, reduction in oil and moisture content in the skin and weakening muscles also contribute to a discolored, bony, and veiny appearance.

Being one of the regions of the body most exposed to harmful outside elements, it is no wonder that the hands are one of the first body parts that exhibit the early signs of aging, along with the face. Hand rejuvenation seeks to correct and camouflage all these apparent signs of aging to restore the appearance of plump and blemish-free hands.

Exilis UltraSmooth

Exilis UltraSmooth is an excellent cosmetic treatment options used to restore younger-looking hands through non-surgical means. In simple terms, it is a procedure that harnesses the benefits of delivering both radio frequency and ultrasound energy to the hands to achieve faster and better cosmetic results.

The Exilis UltraSmooth system consists of a hand-held applicator device that can transmit energy into the areas of the hands that need attention. The cooling tip ensures that the surface of the skin is unharmed. At the same time, heat is generated in the lower layers due to the energy delivered.

The controlled heating at optimal depths has the capability to disrupt the underlying fat cells. Gradually, these damaged cells be flushed away by the body’s natural processes. In this manner, the excess fat deposits that have collected in unwanted locations can be shrunk down.

This system stimulates the production of collagen in the skin. As a result, the matrix that gives shape and structure to the skin is restored over time. The resulting firmer and healthier skin results in the ironing out of wrinkles and fine lines. The texture of the skin becomes smoother and your hands will have a more even and beautiful complexion.

The treatment is pain-free and patients describe the feeling as similar to a hot stone massage! A warm sensation may be felt in the deeper layers of the skin, but the upper layers are kept cool by the cooling system built into the applicator. This helps to optimize comfort while enjoying the full benefits of the hand rejuvenation treatment.The Exilis UltraSmooth treatment is a safe, fast, and effective way to rejuvenate your hands and complete your transformation to a more youthful version of you.
