London, July 14 (IANS) Singer Madonna reportedly underwent a 250 pounds (roughly $330.85) per session hand treatment to reduce wrinkles and as a result she has been able to step out without gloves on “for the first time in years”.
The 57-year-old singer is often seen out and about with gloves on as a result of undergoing “redermalisation mesotherapy”, but for the first time “in years” she has been able to step out without mittens on following a hat-trick of successful 45-minute procedures.
A source told mirror.co.uk: “Mesotherapy isn’t too painful but nor is it for the faint-hearted.
“She has to wear gloves for 36 hours afterwards because hands come up in unsightly ‘bubbles’ of air as the amino acids and hyaluronic acid do their worst. Within three sessions, though, her hands were looking much better. She’s thrilled with the results,” the insider added.
“She is now going out without gloves or mittens for the first time in years.”
Popular in Russia, the treatment involves 80-100 tiny injections of pharmaceuticals and vitamins into the skin and has been dubbed “bubble therapy” as the skin comes up in micro-papules which is why Madonna had to wear gloves afterwards.
Iryna Stewart, who has practised mesotherapy for 10 years at her London clinic, added: “One treatment alone is like using a whole pot of expensive cream, but with instantaneous effects”
