How Does The Hand Plumping Treatment Work?
Using the advanced Radio Frequency (“RF”) based technologies from PureGenex our unique protocols apply this amazing technology to promote a plumping of the skin on the back of the hands for a fuller, smoother and more youthful appearance.
Depending upon your specific circumstances, we will use either stand-alone multi-polar Radio Frequency of our PureGenex PureLift+ platform, or a controlled combination of Vacuum Targeted Radio Frequency and PhotoDynamic (Light) Therapy (delivered by our new PureGenex ProSculpt platform to precisely target and heat the collagen fibres within the lips and surrounding area. This ensures direct delivery of the RF energy to the treated area to achieve optimal lifting, plumping and toning results.Skin Tightening
- Existing collagen tissues shrink, providing an immediate tightening and plumping effect.
- Old, fibrous collagen is denatured and broken down by the body.
- Fibroblasts (the cells that create new collagen) are stimulated to create new, fresh, supple collagen.
- As the collagen contracts and is restructured, the dermal tissues are lifted and plumped, achieving a more supple, youthful appearance.
- Vacuum targeted radio frequency with electronic impedance matching continuously monitors the impedance within the dermal tissues and adjusts the energy output to ensure optimal therapeutic effect, whilst also maintaining complete safety.
How does this have a skin tightening effect?
Loose skin due to weight loss or ageing of the supporting tissues appears wrinkled and lifeless. Old, fibrous and dis-organised collagen fibres are unable to support the skin.
Our revolutionary Skin Tightening treatments achieve immediate lifting and tightening effects as existing collagen fibres contract, as well as longer lasting tightening, smoothing and lifting as new collagen is produced.
A massage oil is applied to the treatment area, then the Non-Surgical Face and Neck Lift treatment commences. The advanced technology generates heat in the subcutaneous layer, causing the existing active collagen to contract, delivering immediately tighter feeling skin.
The RF energy also selectively denatures (breaks down) the old, inflexible collagen and stimulates the re-growth of fresh, healthy and flexible collagen fibres. With successive treatments, this cumulative effect will deliver long lasting results!
The Photodynamic Therapy energy is absorbed gently by the skin, conditioning and toning the surface tissues to provide a more even skin tone and youthful glow.
The laying down of fresh, new collagen fibres results in skin remodeling, taking place over 3-6 months and lasting up to two years, although “top up” treatments every 6-9 months can prolong this effect.
The volume of collagen increases in a more organised structure. This reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, whilst also providing tighter, plumper firmer feeling skin. Altogether a more youthful, supple and smoother complexion is achieved.
Each of the combined therapies operating within the Hand Plumping treatment are what we call “cumulative therapies”. This means they work immediately during each treatment but, in order to achieve optimal results, a series of treatments is required over a period of weeks. This enables the time needed in between treatments for the body to react naturally to the stimulating effects of the therapies and re-construct the tissues being targeted to naturally achieve the objective; smoother, more youthful looking hands.

What happens when I come for treatment?
Your Hand plumping experience will begin with a FREE consultation. During this we will discuss how you would like to improve your appearance and the likely length of treatment required and how those areas will be targeted by the treatments. Following the consultation and the completion of a medical questionnaire, photographs will be taken to enable us to monitor your progress. The treatments will then commence as follows :-
Gentle oils or cooling gel (dependent upon area being treated) will be applied to the treatment area. This is to ensure optimal transmission of the therapeutic energies into the dermal tissues.
The treatment is then configured and the treatment head applied to the treatment area.
The machine is then switched on and the treatment head is moved across the targeted area(s) several times to ensure complete coverage.
After treatment the skin will be cleaned of all oils and gel, leaving the skin feeling smoother, more supple and rejuvenated.
