Madonna is injecting her hands with ‘amino acids, vitamins & hyaluronic acid’


Of all my superficial concerns about ageing, I’ve never really thought much about my hands. I’m too busy worrying about my eyes and my neck! But some women get really concerned about their hands. As some say, the hands don’t lie. The hands will give away your age every time. So is it any surprise that 57-year-old Madonna has turned her ageing-intervention time and money on her hands? If you’ve seen Madonna try to speak recently, you probably know that she gave her face a complete overhaul about two years ago, and she is filled to the gills with Botox and whatever else you’ve got. And now she’s doing the same thing to her hands, apparently.

She’s managed to defy time with her youthful appearance and now Madonna’s hands are reportedly getting the A-list treatment in a bid to keep them looking their best. After revealing the smoothest of hands on a recent outing, the Daily Mirror reports that the 57-year-old singer has sought the help of professionals in order to banish wrinkles and unsightly veins.

The publication reports: ‘The veteran singer has undergone a course of £250-a-go redermalization mesotherapy sessions. The treatment, from Russia, involves micro-injections of amino acids, vitamins and hyaluronic acid to stimulate the production of skin-plumping collagen.’

A source added: ‘Madonna has always been conscious of her hands. She has to wear gloves for 36 hours afterwards because hands come up with unsightly bubbles of air.’

“Micro-injections of amino acids, vitamins and hyaluronic acid”… in your hands? I’m scared of the ravages of time too, but I draw the line at people injecting sh-t into my hands just so they won’t give away my age. People need their hands! What if something goes wrong? What if you lose functionality in one or both of your hands just because you’re injecting tons of crap in there? This seems like a really stupid idea. Here are some recent shots of Madge’s gloveless hands… are the treatments working?



Madonna also took all four of her kids to Malawi this week. She was posting photos on her social media for days.

    Am I the only one who thinks that she looks like a messed up blonde Judy Tenuta after all of the surgery and injections and stuff?

    A few years ago I went and saw the the exhibit “bodies”. They preserve human bodies and shows the body in different ways. Everyday they have to inject the bodies with some kind of liquid in order for them that stay in their current state. Reading this story about Madonna reminded me of that. She is a walking science experiment.

    • Cali says:

      Body Works? OMG, I was too scared and chickened out at the last minute when they came to LA. Was it eerie for you?

      • aims says:

        Body Works!!! That’s the name of it. It was interesting and borderline exploitive to be honest. It came into Portland a few years ago and before hand they have a disclaimer that the bodies were donated for science. And I kept thinking did they have any idea they would be gawked at for years to come?

    • ladysussex says:

      I think she’s like one of those fairytale stories of women who bathed in virgin’s blood to stay youthful. I swear she would literally do anything to appear youthful.

    My hands have thin skin, age spots, and obvious veins. I wish they didn’t, but whenever I think about it I remind myself that they are strong hands, and that they still function to do what I need them to do.

    If my “old lady hands” offend people, they can just look elsewhere. And GET OFF MY LAWN.

    • SusanneToo says:

      A few years ago I glanced at my arms and thought “When did I suddenly get my grandmother’s arms. ” But it is what it is.

    I love how in the last photo she used a fancy contrast filter to make herself look pretty while erasing the faces of the Malawians. She basically blurred them into one dark backdrop upon which to feature a glowing white lady. Gross.

    Is there a surgery that can make a person less vain and self-obsessed? If there is, she should get that.

    • Chetta B. says:

      Huge gigantic egos: always a turnoff.

    • LAK says:

      Small correction: Those aren’t Malawi. Going by their dress, they are Masaai. The Kenyan flag in her instagram is also a giveaway as to which country she is in.

      • Kitten says:

        Oh man, I knew I’d f*ck that up. Sigh.
        I actually typed “indigenous Africans” at first but thought that sounded too broad.

        Thanks for pointing that out, LAK, and apologies for my ignorance on the matter.

    • Cindy says:

      Oh dear she did.

    • Cali says:

      Yes, I noticed that too, no more than props…

    • Emily says:

      Lol her captions and emoticons remind me of that “White Saviour Barbie” Instagram account (Google it if you haven’t seen it yet).

      • GingerCrunch says:

        A thousand thanks Emily, for mentioning the Savior Barbie! I’m over there laughing my ass off, and boy, could I use a few laughs!

      • Neverwintersand says:

        Thanks! Giggling like mad at the account! It’s also thought provoking 🙂

    • cd3 says:

      Ugh, you’re right. So gross.

    • Belle Epoch says:

      Totally agree, KITTEN! It’s actually a horrifying picture. She sees herself as the white savior among nameless, faceless Africans – with whom she has no connection whatsoever. She is no Angelina Jolie!

  5. Chels says:

    Me too Madonna, me too.

  6. Cindy says:

    Oh Madonna. Man, I would not want to be inside her head. And I would not want to be one of her children *shudders*. I know this is harped on to death, but she is a textbook narcissist. Watching her age is sort of morbidly fascinating and awful at the same time…..As far as her hands go, no I do not really see a difference. Hands defiantly age, I know mine are at 44. On a side note- why doesn’t she just inject filler, like facial filler? Wouldn’t that be simpler?

  7. Jayna says:

    Her hands are the same. I mean, I’m sure she’s had treatment over the years, but she still has very veiny hands, maybe not as prominent as years ago. But she photoshops her photos. That’s all. I’m sure those are photos she’s released. She’s probably just photoshopped her hands like she does her face.

  8. Bread and Circuses says:

    I guess the treatments are working; I remember how veiny her hands looked before she started wearing fingerless gloves everywhere and yes, they look better now.

    I tend to shake my head at how much she’s changed her face, but hey, it’s her face. She’s clearly decided she’s okay with looking puffed and immobile provided she doesn’t look old. If the hands wind up the same way, she’ll probably be fine with it.

  9. Crumpet says:

    My hands are getting Rentin-A and lots of sunscreen these days. That is about as far as I am taking it.

  10. Emma - The JP Lover says:

    The sad thing for me is that Madonna isn’t doing all of this to compete with other 57-year-old ladies, to be the most beautiful and youthful among them. She is doing all of this to compete with girls and young women in their late Teens and early 20’s, with the outfits and the cool hairstyles … she’s trying to keep pace with her daughter. I bet that was cute when Lourdes was young, but I’ll bet it is off-putting to her now. What 19-year-old girl wants their mother competing with them (in embarrassing fashion) for boyfriends?

  11. She kind of looks like a budget Jessica Lange….only Lange has had really good work done…Madonna’s is starting to look overworked. If she had only stopped at the initial facelift….

    I say good for her if it’s something that bothers her.
