With so much emphasis on maintaining a youthful face, the hands are very often neglected until the signs of aging become difficult to camouflage. Overworked and unprotected, aging hands can give away a person’s true age, or make them appear older than they actually are.

Hands typically age faster than the face because the skin is thinner and there is very little fat beneath the surface. Due to neglect and repeated sun exposure over the years, the fat layer is gradually depleted and collagen in the skin decreases. Plump, youthful hands eventually become hands with wrinkled, crepey skin, prominent veins, age spots, and liver spots. As collagen decreases and the skin’s natural moisture barrier diminishes, aging of the hands is inevitable and difficult to reverse without a targeted treatment plan.
Restoring youthful hands often requires a combination approach. Effective treatments include dermal fillers, laser skin resurfacing, diligent sun protection and skincare products that will promote healthy skin function.
