Premature ageing

Premature ageing of the hands is characterised by early signs of skin thinning, loss of elasticity, and the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. These changes can be accelerated by sun exposure and environmental factors. Our treatments focus on reversing these signs to restore a youthful appearance to your hands.

Fine lines & wrinkles

Fine lines and wrinkles on the hands are telltale signs of ageing, often exacerbated by sun exposure and environmental stress. Our targeted treatments are designed to smooth these concerns, rejuvenating the skin’s texture and promoting a refreshed, revitalised appearance, effectively restoring your hands’ natural beauty.

Skin sagging

Sagging skin on the hands is the result of decreased collagen and elastin, leading to a loss of firmness and elasticity. Our treatments aim to tighten and firm the skin, restoring its youthful shape and resilience. By revitalising the hands, we enhance their appearance, giving them a rejuvenated, lifted look.


Hyperpigmentation on the hands manifests as dark spots or patches, often due to sun exposure, ageing, or genetics. Our specialised treatments aim to even out skin tone by reducing these dark areas, restoring a uniform, renewed appearance to the hands and improving overall skin clarity.

Age spots

Age spots, also known as liver spots, are flat, dark areas on the hands that develop due to prolonged sun exposure over the years. Our advanced treatments focus on lightning these spots, significantly improving the hands’ appearance by restoring a more even, vibrant skin tone.


Sunspots on the hands are visible signs of sun damage, presenting as flat, brown spots that intensify with age and exposure. Our treatments target these blemishes, employing cutting-edge techniques to reduce their appearance and rejuvenate the skin, resulting in a smoother, more even-toned hand complexion.

Frequently asked questions about conditions & treatments associated with hand rejuvenation

What causes wrinkles on hands?

Wrinkles on the hands are primarily caused by the natural ageing process, which leads to decreased collagen and elastin production, resulting in thinner, less elastic skin. Environmental factors, such as prolonged sun exposure and harsh weather conditions, can accelerate this process, making the hands look older than they are. Proper care and protective measures can help mitigate these effects.

How to get rid of wrinkles on hands

There are multiple ways to reduce wrinkles on hands.

One effective approach is the use of dermal fillers, which restore lost volume in target areas and smooth the skin. Complementing this, bio-skin remodelling utilises a stabilised hyaluronic acid-based skin booster, distinct in its ability to hydrate and stimulate collagen and elastin production, thereby enhancing the rejuvenating effects of fillers for more comprehensive skin improvement.

In addition, mesoboosters offer a unique rejuvenation strategy, using micro-injections to deliver a potent blend of hyaluronic acid, minerals, essential vitamins, and biomimetic peptides. This innovative approach promotes hydration and collagen production, bio-stimulating and rejuvenating all layers of the skin, leading to a visibly youthful appearance.

Other treatments include Lumecca IPL treatments, which also stimulate collagen production and the release of regenerative growth factors to lift and tighten skin; and chemical peels, which remove dead skin cells and the epidermis, revealing fresher, younger-looking skin beneath.

Topical retinoids and moisturisers can also improve skin texture and elasticity.

For personalised treatment options, consult with an aesthetic Skincare Specialist to determine the best strategy for your hands.

How does sun damage affect the hands?

Sun damage on the hands can manifest in various forms, including fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation (dark spots or patches), age spots (also known as liver spots), and sunspots (flat, brown spots). 

Each of these conditions indicates different levels of damage caused by prolonged exposure to UV rays, accelerating the ageing process of the skin on the hands.

How to get rid of sunspots on hands

To reduce sunspots, treatments such as Lumecca IPL  and chemical peels are effective. 

These procedures target and lighten pigmented areas, stimulating skin regeneration and promoting collagen production. 

Additionally, topical treatments containing ingredients like retinoids and vitamin C can improve skin texture and appearance.

Can you reverse hand wrinkles?

No, wrinkles on the hands can’t be reversed completely, but they often can be reduced through a combination of professional skincare and/or medical aesthetic treatments that target the underlying causes of skin ageing, enhancing the skin’s appearance and restoring a more youthful look.

How long do hand rejuvenation results last?

The longevity of hand rejuvenation results varies by treatment, with some lasting 12 to 18 months, like certain dermal fillers, and others, such as laser treatments, offering benefits that can extend up to a year. 

Ultimately, the duration of the rejuvenation effects depends on the specific treatment chosen, the individual’s skin condition, and their lifestyle. Seeing that our hands are continuously exposed to environmental factors that contribute to these concerns, regular maintenance sessions are often recommended to preserve the desired outcomes.

What are the best treatments for wrinkled hands?

No single treatment stands out as the best for wrinkled hands; its effectiveness is influenced by the condition’s severity, your personal lifestyle, and your skincare routine. Nonetheless, wrinkled hands can be rejuvenated, with the expertise of a professional in a controlled setting and following an extensive consultation

The following treatments for wrinkled hands have delivered excellent results:


Mesoboosters rejuvenate the hands by precisely delivering a synergistic blend of hyaluronic acid, vitamins, and peptides directly into the skin. This advanced treatment promotes deep hydration, stimulates collagen production, and enhances skin elasticity for a visibly youthful appearance. Tailored to combat the signs of ageing, Mesoboosters offer a non-surgical pathway to revitalised and radiant skin.

Bio-skin Remodelling

Bio-skin remodelling, tailored for the rejuvenation of wrinkled hands, employs state-of-the-art bio-stimulators, calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) and Poly-L-Lactic acid (PLLA), to foster the skin’s natural collagen production. This targeted approach significantly enhances skin firmness, elasticity, and overall quality, directly addressing the signs of ageing on hands. 

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers have been used very successfully to rejuvenate the hands, replacing the lost volume and plumping the skin for a smoother and more youthful appearance.

Chemical Peels

A chemical peel is a technique that improves the skin’s texture and appearance by dissolving the damaged layers on the surface. The amount of skin removed will depend on the type of chemical used, the strength of the peel, and how long it is left on the skin or how many layers are applied to the skin. There are various chemical peel treatments available for the treatment of different types of ageing skin on the hands

3D Medical Skin Needling

Our signature 3D micro-needling experience is an effective method for anyone interested in the rejuvenation of the neck, chest, face, or hands. The combination of 3 individual treatments in 1 treatment session ensures that we target all the manifestations of ageing for healthier, more youthful skin. This treatment combines micro-needling, a hydrating mask, and peptide infusion via sonophoresis and iontophoresis for comprehensive skin rejuvenation.

What are the best treatments for sun-damaged hands?

There is no one best treatment for sun-damaged hands; the success of the treatment will depend on the severity of the skin condition, your lifestyle choices, and your beauty regime. Sun-damaged hands can be rejuvenated very successfully if done by an experienced professional in a controlled environment after a comprehensive consultation.

The following treatments for sun damage on the hands have delivered excellent results:

Lumecca Intense Pulsed Light

Lumecca IPL is the most powerful intense pulsed light (IPL) used to treat sun damage, as well as pigmented and vascular lesions. After each session, patients notice significant improvements in the overall complexion and clarity of the skin.

Chemical Peels

A chemical peel enhances the skin’s texture by removing its damaged outer layers. The layers of skin removed vary with the type of chemical used, the peel’s intensity, and the duration or number of layers applied. Various chemical peel options exist to address different kinds of sun damage on the hands.
