Madonna Keeps Hands Looking Youthful with Non-Surgical Treatment

When pondering how to look younger, it's easy to forget one fairly prominent area -- the appearance of our hands.  Is it possible to “make over” aging hands, too?  

A new procedure in the UK is being hailed as the one-stop solution to age spots, sun damage, and wrinkles that plague our hands as we get older.  It’s called the CACI, short for Computer Aided Cosmetology Instrument.  The treatment uses a combination of microdermabrasion, electrotherapy and LED light therapy to remove dead skin cells, stimulate collagen growth, and improve blood flow and circulation (which plumps up the skin, making hands appear younger).

The CACI treatment is not new in the U.S.  But here, it is normally used for the face and is promoted as a “non-surgical facelift” – a type of high-end facial.  Spas and salons have recently started offering this remedy for other areas of the body, such as eyes, décolleté and now hands. 

Apparently, CACI has a celebrity following.  Madonna has been rumored to get this done for her hands (along with injectable fillers).  Maybe Sarah Jessica Parker should look into this, too - as she has had some unfortunate “hand issues.”

So should you give this a try?

Well, don’t ditch that hand cream just yet.  The cost of the procedure can start at $75 and it is recommended that you get this done 6-12 times for the best results.  That's anywhere from $450-900!  A tube of Nivea doesn’t sound so bad now...
