Are Your Hands Giving Away Your Age?

You care meticulously for your facial skin, allowing you to look years younger than your actual age. However, your face is not the only place that can belie your real age. Your hands are exposed to the elements as much if not more than your face and can began show signs of age. Your hands can lose fat from under the skin, revealing your veins, tendons and bones. The skin can also begin to discolor with age spots and the skin can begin to wrinkle. However, you can rejuvenate your hands and make them look younger with the help of a cosmetic procedures.

There are a few different cosmetic procedures that can help your hands look younger. Just like your face, the skin on your hands can be rejuvenated to look plumper, smoother and with an even skin tone. Many of these procedures do not require surgery and often only require an office visit and little to no downtime after the procedure. Some options include:

  • Laser skin resurfacing
  • Filler injections
  • Chemical peels
  • Fat injections or grafts
  • Cryotherapy

The right procedure will depend on what issues are most concerning on your hands. If you have noticeable tendons, bones or veins that are making your hands look ‘boney’, fillers can plump under the skin for a more youthful appearance. Laser resurfacing, chemical peels and Cryotherapy are options to reduce age spots and wrinkles.  Often both fillers and skin rejuvenation techniques are used together for the best results.

If you want your hands to match your face, looking years younger, talk to your local plastic surgeon about hand rejuvenation options. There is no reason to live with hands that are giving away your true age.
