Don’t Let Your Hands Reveal Your Age

Most of us are focused on the signs of aging on our face and are willing to spend time, energy, and money on addressing these obvious details. Although facial treatments are extremely important to combat signs of aging, our neck and hands are often neglected.

Our hands are incredibly expressive parts of our body. Simply  signing a credit card receipt, displaying beautiful jewelry, or shaking hands can send very clear indications of your age and bely the secrets of your anti-aging regimen.

Perhaps even more than the face, our hands are exposed to the damaging rays of the sun. We might not be particularly diligent about protecting them with sunscreen. As we age, the skin of our hands loses its hydration and, eventually, its elasticity.

The soft tissue and fat that was there when we were younger becomes much thinner and frail looking. Just like in our face, a significant loss of collagen and hyaluronic acid in the tissue causes this look. The results are older, skeletal-looking hands with dry, crepe paper like, thin skin, with the tendons showing more and the vessels on the back of the hand becoming more apparent.

Three Treatments for Beautiful Hands

Dr. Tosoni offers three easy ways to try to restore the youthful appearance of weathered hands, and these treatments work together!

The first way is simply by restoring the lost volume of the hand collagen and fat with the injection of dermal fillers, such as Juverderm® or Restylane® products. This literally takes minutes to do and the results are instant, painless, very effective, and will last 12 to 18 months.*

The second treatment option is rejuvenation of the skin itself by removing brown “age spots” on the hands with Intense Pulse Light treatments.

A third alternative is to rejuvenate the hands by both lightening the brownish discoloration and stimulating the natural collagen with Fraxel treatments.
