No matter how well we take care of them our hands can be a real giveaway of age! work, hobbies, cleaning, cooking or even just on holiday, our hands are the first point of contact in everything we do, unfortunately, even though we try to protect them with lotions and potions, its often not enough. The skin on our hands is naturally thinner lacking fat in the surrounding tissue which highlights loose lined skin, prominent veins and ligaments and unsightly sun damage. All this means Hands are particularly susceptible to the early signs of ageing especially as they are regularly exposed to the sun’s harmful rays and aggressive modern day living.
Help is at hand! You don’t have to be self-conscious about prematurely ageing hands here at New Skin Clinics we have a variety of ways to help.

Pigmentation is a common condition which has two main forms; hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation. In a hyperpigmented skin, patches of the skin become darker than the surrounding skin; this can show itself in the form of sun damage, sun spots, freckles and Melasma, also known as ‘the mask of pregnancy’.
Hypopigmentation is the opposite to hyperpigmentation, areas of the skin become lighter in colour than usual; this can sometimes be a result of sun damage or the skin disease, Vitiligo.

Age or Sun spots
Age spots are a type of pigmentation which will often appear on the areas of the body which are most often exposed to the sun and are more commonly found on lighter skin types. These spots are brown or brown-grey in colour, flat and vary in size. They can get larger with age and increase in number.
Age spots are harmless and can be treated; if you are concerned that an area on your skin looks to be more sinister than an age spot, it is important that you make an appointment with a doctor.
We also suggest that you to help protect yourself from developing or worsening age spots wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen. Following an in-depth consultation at Marlow Nail & Beauty we select the right treatments and products for you to help you reach your goals and to get your skin looking and feeling healthy.
