Are Your Hands Giving Away Your Age?

Despite our efforts to maintain a healthy complexion, follow a balanced diet, stay active, and care for our hair, it appears that our hands often give away our age. Unfortunately, our hands often show signs of aging faster than other areas of our body. Why does this happen, and how can hand rejuvenation treatments address this concern? Here’s what you need to know.

Why Do Hands Age So Quickly?

Excessive Exposure to Sunlight

Regardless of the season, our hands are constantly exposed to sunlight whether we’re outdoors, driving, or even near a window indoors. While many people faithfully apply sunscreen as part of their morning skincare routine, they often forget to protect their hands. Our hands have thin and delicate skin, which makes them more vulnerable to the harmful effects of the sun. These factors contribute to the rapid appearance of freckles, tanning, and age spots on the hands.

Depletion of Collagen

Collagen, a naturally occurring protein in our bodies, plays a crucial role in maintaining the elasticity of our skin, which contributes to the youthful appearance of our hands. As collagen diminishes over time, the skin loses its youthful elasticity and becomes more prone to developing wrinkles and fine lines. Due to the thinner skin on our hands, the loss of collagen in this area becomes more noticeable.

Volume Loss

Various factors, such as the natural aging process, individual skin type, and hormonal fluctuations, can all play a role in the reduction of subcutaneous fat in the body. As we age, the appearance of more pronounced veins and tendons in our hands is a natural occurrence due to a decrease in fat volume.

How Hand Rejuvenation Addresses Hand Aging

Hand rejuvenation involves the use of dermal cosmetic fillers such as Radiesse to add volume back to the hands. The process also stimulates collagen for a long-lasting effect, significantly minimizing the look of aging. The process requires no downtime, and patients can return to work directly after the procedure.
