The pressure of having to put an engagement ring selfie on social media has led to a growth in demand for the ‘hand lift’, which isn’t surprising as brides- to-be are getting older and hands are the first place on the body to age. Dr Preema Vig says:

‘As we age, the skin on the hands can lose fat, becoming thin and bony with prominent veins and wrinkles.’

To get your hands photo-ready Dr Preema Vig advices that you can have a resurfacing treatment to diminish the appearance of brown spots and pigmentation. You can also opt to have a hyaluronic dermal filler treatment, to immediately re-plump and replenish volume to the back of the hands to provide a supple and youthful appearance instantly.

Dr Preema Vig adds: ‘I encourage patients to protect and maintain results with the daily use of Medical grade skin care at home. Hands will need to be protected from the ageing effect of sun damage by the regular use of sun protection.’

Dr Preema Vig is based at her private practice,35 Devonshire Place, London and also at Beyond MediSpa at Harvey Nichols, where she is the Medical Director. She is renowned for putting her patients at ease with her philosophy being, less is always more..
