Many individuals are surprised to learn that the hands are one of the first places where the visible signs of aging become apparent. Even patients who have been vigilant about keeping their face and neck looking youthful and beautiful can fall victim to the aging effects of veiny, sun-damaged, and/or wrinkled hands.
The skin on the hands is very thin, fragile, and is constantly exposed to the damaging effects of UV (ultraviolet) rays, which break down the crucial collagen and fat stores responsible for keeping our skin looking firm and youthfully supple. Over time, the loss of volume, fat, and elasticity give the hands a more translucent, wrinkled appearance with increasingly visible tendons, bones, and veins. Moreover, although we typically remember to put sunscreen on our face, the hands are often neglected, which is why they are often one of the first places to show the detrimental effects of aging, such as:
- Hyperpigmentation (skin-darkening, “age spots”)
- Depleted volume and prominent veins and tendons
- Thin, bony, and/or wrinkled hands
- Irregular skin tone, color, and texture
Hand rejuvenation treatments can help to turn back the hands of time and restore a more youthful appearance to the hands. There are a variety of effective, non-invasive skin-enhancement techniques available to rejuvenate the hands, decrease the visibility of wrinkles and prominent veins, and improve the quality and texture of the skin on the hands.
