We have all heard the expression, you can really tell a person’s age just by looking at their hands. It is true! Unlike the face which receives the most attention aesthetically, the hands are often neglected. Exposure to the elements and time can really take its toll. Sun exposure results in sun damage, age spots and other skin discoloration. As we age, a reduction in the amount of collagen in the skin depletes it of volume and elasticity. This causes the skin to appear thinner, exposing the structures beneath like veins and tendons, a look that many associate with aging.
Turning back the hands of time
You’ll be glad to know that there are minimally-invasive, safe methods to rejuvenate your hands. For sun damage, brown spots and other pigmentation issues, talk to one of SkinCenter’s expert physicians about laser and light technologies to erase the appearance of these blemishes with amazing results. For volume loss and the pronounced appearance of bones and veins you’ll want to consider FDA-approved Radiesse Hands, a cosmetic filler that restores volume. Beautiful results can be seen quickly and have proven long lasting – in some instances for more than a year. And for those with sweaty palms, a condition that can worsen with age, Dysport or Botox can treat this embarrassing condition and restore your confidence.
The finishing touch
We all want to look as young as we feel from our faces right down to our hands. Don’t neglect this important area of the body. Use products with moisturizing properties and sunscreen to help prevent damage and to keep your hands smooth to the touch. And for damage already done, put the finishing touches on your youthful appearance with hand treatments by the expert physicians and Certified Aesthetic Nurse Specialists at SkinCenter.
