The signs of aging are often noticed first on the face, with the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. But did you also know that your hands can also give away your real age? We don’t always realize it, but the hands can be a telltale sign of aging as the skin becomes thinner and veins become more noticeable. Patients may also notice changes in the skin such as the development of age spots or sun spots. Drs. Martin Zaiac and Nardo Zaias of the Greater Miami Skin and Laser Center may recommend hand rejuvenation. But what treatments are best?
Treatment for aging hands
There are a few aspects of aging hands that need to be considered when thinking about the best treatment options. For patients who have specific concerns such as thinning hands due to volume loss, cosmetic injectables such as dermal fillers and collagen stimulators may be the best course of action. However, if patients are concerned about hyperpigmentation and the development of spots and freckles on the hand, certain light and laser-based therapies might be best.
Which treatment is best for my hands?
For many of our patients, we may recommend injections or light therapies to improve the appearance of the hands. Some individuals may benefit from both, which is another option to consider. When patients consult with our dermatologists at our two office locations, they can learn about the treatments available for aging hands and select the one most appropriate for their unique situation. With a thorough evaluation and assessment, our team can also speak to patients about what they can do to protect their skin from premature aging over time, including the regular, daily use of high SPF sunblock to reduce sun exposure and damage.
