Umo Hand Therapy

They say you can tell the age of a woman by the look of her hands.

That’s because thin skin on the hands can reveal much more than the skin on your face and neck. Numerous treatments revive and renew delicate facial skin. When Beyond Bronze Sun Studios talks  relaxation and rejuvenation, we don’t leave out the hands. UMO Hand Therapy specifically targets the delicate skin of the hands.

“As we age, our hands tend to lose their firmness and volume and the veins and tendons become more pronounced,” said dermatologist Dee Anna Glaser, MD, FAAD, at the American Academy of Dermatology’s Summer Academy Meeting in New York last month. “In addition, changes in texture where the skin appears crinkled or is marked with spots, commonly called ‘liver spots’ or ‘age spots,’ are the hallmarks of an aging hand.”

Designed to moisturize deep beneath the skin’s surface, UMO Hand uses Gamma PGA, which has a hydrating effect 10 times stronger than hyaluronic acid. Creating a cool mist to hydrate and lock in moisture, the system encourages cell renewal and clears, repairs and revitalizes skin in just one session.

Members love the service. One Member Pam  told us . “My skin was dry and cracking and lotion alone wasn’t doing the job. Now my hands are smooth, moisturized and more youthful.”

Men benefit from the UMO Hand service as well. After a summer of sun and outdoor projects, the fall is a great time to try the treatment and get happy hands.

“The hands are often overlooked because we put so much emphasis on our face,” Dr. Glaser said at the gathering of dermatologists. “But our hands can be even more susceptible to the effects of aging.”

UMO Hand Spa 
UMO blends innovative Asian technology with centuries old Acupressure to create a hand treatment designed to restore youthful plumpness, brightness and suppleness to the hands.  The UMO Hand Spa uses ultrasonic pulse energy (a form of acupressure) to increase microcirculation (the blood flow through very small blood vessels such as capillaries).  Increased microcirculation contributes to both skin color and suppleness.  Additionally, the ultrasonic vibrations aid the absorption and penetration of the active ingredients for a long lasting and highly effective treatment.

How the UMO Hand Spa Works

The UMO Hand Spa is a very comfortable and relaxing treatment.  Hands are placed in a chamber filled with water, Gamma PGA, and customized ingredients depending on the nature of the treatment.  A synergistic effect is created when the vibrating water molecules combine with the potent ionic Gamma PGA formula, resulting in optimal penetration to the skin’s deepest layers. 

As the skin is penetrated, the ingredients also have an affect on the skin’s Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF).  This is a group of chemicals in the Stratum Corneum (the outermost layer of the skin) that has the ability to bind and hold water molecules in and around the Keratin cells.  With age, the NFM ceases to work as effectively and the skin becomes more dry and cracked.  The UMO formulas are designed to enhance the skin’s natural moisturizing capability and help the Stratum Corneum stay smooth and intact.

After ten minutes, when hands are removed, you can see immediate visible results of softer, plumper and supple hands.
