Hand treatments at LAB Skin Clinic, Neutral Bay will restore clear, plump and youthful-looking hands…
A recent study, published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery magazine found that the majority of people can correctly guess someone’s age by glancing at their hands. Because hands are exposed to a myriad of environmental onslaughts, they prematurely show signs of ageing, such as: age spots, loss of fat, prominent veins and wrinkling.
At LAB Skin Clinic, our hand rejuvenation treatments include a variety of treatment protocols including super-active skin care (containing highly advanced ingredients), Omnilux Medical LED therapy, lasers, IPL, dermal fillers and PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) injections, which reduce pigment and age spots, restore hydration, and create a beautifully plump, flawless and youthful appearance.
No one treatment will cure all the problems associated with ageing hands, so at L.A.B Skin Clinic we use different medical-grade technologies (the choice being governed by the severity and nature of the problem) in conjunction with superceutical skin care ingredients, to get the best results:
- Eradicating pigmentation (often called ‘age spots’) – which appear as a result of over-exposure to UV rays from the sun. Using IPL and/or Laser photo rejuvenation in conjunction with LED therapy is a highly effective treatment and results will be seen immediately.
- Reducing the appearance of prominent veins – which are probably the most ageing of all the signs – with dermal fillers and PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma). These treatments are highly effective and are administered only by qualified doctors. We DO NOT recommend sclerotherapy (vein removal).
- Replacing volume loss – dermal filler is safe and requires no downtime and is the gold standard for restoration of lost volume from the hands and for camouflaging ageing tendons, veins and bones.
- Hydrating, smoothing and reducing wrinkles – using a range of different technologies including microdermabrasion, skin needling, laser resurfacing, PRP, super-infusions of active cell rejuvenation ingredients and at-home skin care will provide a highly effective long-term rejuvenation result.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
A minimum of two up to six (in the case of severe damage) treatments spaced at fortnightly or monthly intervals will be required to achieve the best results.
Treatments are quick and simple and only take from 10 to 20 minutes. There is no downtime and you will see instant results, as the fading and disappearance of freckles, age spots, fine lines, prominent veins and wrinkles, as well as tighter and smoother skin and more even skin tone become more and more apparent and peek over a period of time.
Maintaining Your Beautiful Results:
Because melanocyte skin cells produce melanin (the pigment responsible for tanning) in response to damage, such as UV rays from the sun, and wear and tear, this pigment will become trapped again in the melanocytes and surrounding skin and will appear as more brown spots if you do not care for your hands after treatment.
So to maintain your results and prevent further damage, you will require maintenance and a prescribed skin-care cream to help to lighten and tighten your skin. We additionally advise you take precautions against further damage by wearing gloves when driving and doing household tasks.
Prevention is better than cure and the chances are if you have prematurely aged hands, your face will be suffering as well.
The number one preventative measure is to apply an SPF 30+ sunscreen on a daily basis, whether or not you intend to be in the sun.
As with your face, regular application of a quality cosmeceutical skin care product that has been carefully prescribed for your specific skin condition is fundamental to long-term youthful skin.

Superceuticals – Are highly active, medical grade ingredients that provide an effective delivery system into your skin’s cells for the best anti-ageing support.
Retin-A & Glycolic Acid Derivatives – Topical applications of Retin-A and glycolic acid derivatives can repair sun-damaged skin and cause “age” spots to fade. Moreover, they stimulate the production of collagen.
Microdermabrasion – Microdermabrasion is a superficial skin polishing treatment that improves the appearance of ageing skin. The results are immediate. Maintenance treatments are required.
Peels – Depending on your skin type and the desired results, your clinician may recommend either a superficial, medium or deep chemical peel, which is applied to the affected areas of your skin.
Laser Skin Resurfacing – This procedure is performed with local anaesthesia for your complete comfort. Laser Hand Rejuvenation gently removes the damaged skin or “age” spots to reveal smooth, fresher-looking hands. Spots are removed in a quick, precise and bloodless fashion to achieve flawless results.
Skin Excess Correction – The excess skin of the top hand can be taken up through some small incisions, or by the skin-shrinking capacity of IPL/Laser and PRP treatments.
IPL Treatment – This targeted treatment is very effective in clearing away sun damage, such as age spots, sun spots, liver spots, etc. Unsightly veins and dark “age” spots are gently removed through short bursts of intense pulsed light.
Volumising – Replacing the volume loss with a dermal-filler is not a “new” procedure. When fillers are injected into the hands they plump up the skin and the depressions between the tendons and veins are refilled. Both the bony appearance and the vein prominences (and the dark colour of the veins) are reduced and your hands become softer and fuller with youthful appearance. Utilizing the appropriate filler for you, our doctors will inject it under the treated area. This simple procedure is performed under local anaesthesia in the doctor’s clinic room. Following the procedure, clients may return to their normal daily activities. Bruised sites may be covered with a concealer.
Dermal Fillers & PRP – You may opt for the instant results of fillers or choose the collagen stimulation of PRP, which over time promotes your own collagen as the “filler”. All injectable fillers are extremely well tolerated, wear well in the hands, and provide a cushion replacement – maintaining a soft and natural feel. Results typically last from 3 to 4 months up to 3 years. Touch up treatments may be necessary to maintain desired correction.
However some doctors will suggest this as a means of treating prominent veins, but as hand veins can be extremely useful for any future intravenous access as in hospitalization and surgery, vein removal should seldom be the first line of treatment to hide blue hand veins.
Most often these veins fade into the background with proper filling.
