What Are Aging Hands?

Aging hands can give away a person’s true age, or make them appear older than they actually are. Overworked and often unprotected, the hands are very often neglected until the signs of aging become difficult to reverse or even camouflage.

Hands 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 while collagen in the skin decreases.

The most common symptoms of aging hands are:

  • Sunspots – These tiny dark spots at the back of the hands are a result of years of continuous unprotected exposure to the sun. Sunspots tend to darken and stand out as a person gets older.
  • Crepey skin – Aging and exposure to harmful UV light also triggers collagen damage that thins out the skin, resulting in a crumpled and crepey skin.
  • Prominent veins – Due to the fat loss in the hands, the veins that were once tucked tend to bulge and become more visible. 
  • Dry patches – Aging hands are prone to be cracked and parched dry to the point of inflammation. Because of the weakened skin barrier function, it becomes vulnerable to irritation from harsh soap and water or a sudden change in the climate.
  • Stained nails – Older people are more prone to having yellowing nails, which can either be caused by constant nail polish use or an underlying health condition like a fungal infection or something more serious.

Fortunately, restoring your hands to their once youthful appearance is no longer impossible. However, it often requires a combination approach of anti-aging hand treatments and a rigorous skincare regimen focused on sun protection.

How to Treat Aging Hands

Let’s delve deeper into the different aging hands treatment options available.

Dermal Filler

Dermal fillers are perhaps one of the most promising hand wrinkle treatments because of its immediate effect. Like in other areas, when dermal fillers are used in the hands it gives a rejuvenating benefit by adding more volume and plumpness.

Injecting dermal fillers into the hands can plump up the back of the hands, softening its appearance and making the protruding tendons and veins less noticeable. Because it stimulates the natural collagen production in the skin, you can expect not only instant results with dermal fillers but also lasting ones. RADIESSE® is the first-ever dermal filler approved by the FDA for aging hands treatment.

Microneedling

Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment procedure that produces incredible benefits. It can be performed on the face and basically anywhere else in the body, including the hands. Microneedling works by using a dermal roller or a derma pen, also known as an ACS pen, equipped with a motorized tip of sterile and ultrafine needles. These needles are vertically injected into the skin to create microscopically tiny puncture wounds in the top layer of the skin, triggering the body to produce new collagen and elastin.

An effective anti-aging hands treatment, microneedling can make the skin in your hands smooth and firm once more.

IPL /BBL PhotoFacial

For sunspots and other hyperpigmentation issues related to aging or sun damage, IPL/BBL PhotoFacial is another must-try cosmetic treatment. It’s frequently used in the facial area but will definitely work as effectively when used in the hands, neck, chest, and other parts of the body. It’s a quick and easy laser skin treatment that only takes anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes.

The best thing about this aging hands treatment is that there’s no significant downtime, making it ideal for anyone with a hectic schedule or always on the go.

BBL™ BroadBand Light

This is another excellent treatment that can eliminate the blemishes and dark spots on the back of your arms. A BBL™ treatment uses advanced technology to deliver pulses of light into the skin to gently heat the outermost layers that accurately targets unwanted brown or red pigment, which then absorbs the light energy, effectively stimulating the regeneration of collagen.

Results You Can Expect from Hand Wrinkle Treatments

RADIESSE® dermal fillers can deliver significant enhancements right after the treatment, which will continue to improve as the swelling subsides completely.

For IPL/BBL PhotoFacial and BBL BroadBand Light, the results are gradual and subtle but absolutely worth it. You will notice the difference in your hand’s skin quality post-treatment. It’s clearer, brighter, and the dark spots have faded away. To achieve the best results, your doctor will recommend completing three to five treatments spaced one month apart.

The same is true for microneedling. More impressive results can be seen after going through a series of treatments. The skin also becomes smoother and more refined in texture. The skin tone evens out beautifully. The appearance of blemishes due to aging are incredibly reduced, especially after the skin exfoliation is done.

How Long Do Aging Hands Treatment Results Last?

Anti-aging hands treatment like dermal fillers, microneedling, and IPL or BBL PhotoFacial, boast of long lasting results that can reach up to almost a couple of years. RADIESSE®, for instance, is known for having the longest staying power of 12 to 18 months, compared to other dermal fillers like Restylane or Juvederm that can start wearing off after six to nine months.

Because these treatments encourage the skin’s natural collagen and elastin production, aside from reversing the signs of aging in the hands, they’re also able to slow it down as new and healthy skin tissue is developed continuously. It lets you enjoy the beauty and youthfulness of your hands a little bit longer.

Following a strict anti-aging skincare routine for your hands, including antioxidants, hydration, and religious use of broad-spectrum sunscreen, can make a huge difference in prolonging the results of your hands wrinkle treatments.
