Make Your Hands Look More Youthful
When it comes to anti-aging skin care, we tend to put most of our effort into our faces. We tend to forget about an area of skin that gives away our true age: the hands. It’s true that people aren’t going to look at your hands quite as much as they’ll look at your face; but there are few others areas that are as frequently exposed as your hands. In fact, your hands are often visible, even during the harshest of New York winters!
The skin on the hands is thinner and more delicate than the skin on the face. With age, the amount of fat padding below the skin on the top of the hands decreases, making unsightly veins and tendons more prominent. Sun damage causes uneven skin tone, age spots, wrinkles, and generally older looking hands.
There are three main focuses for treating aging hands:
- Replacing volume: Injectable fillers such as Radiesse or Sculptra can be used on the hands to replace volume. By adding volume, they cover hand veins and smooth wrinkles.
- Removing spots: Uneven skin tone on the hands can be effectively treated with lasers. Fraxel:Dual is a laser commonly used on hands. Fraxel:Dual works deep within the skin to smooth texture, zap wrinkles, and remove hyperpigmentation caused by sun damage. The result is smooth, younger looking hands with even skin tone!
- Preventing future damage: Hand creams hydrate the skin and temporarily improve skin texture. Creams are not very effective for hand wrinkles, nor will they hide veins or replace volume. They are an important factor in your skin care routine for maintaining moisture and preventing further sun damage. It is best to use a moisturizer/cream with broad spectrum UV protection.

Q-switched lasers including the Q-switched Alexandrite or Nd-Yag are utilized to break up the pigment particles using pulse formations. The continuous wave of pulses target melanin, the primary determinant to cause dark pigmentation in the skin, and leaves behind a more youthful and even toned skin appearance. The amount of melanin in the skin, and the desired results of the patient will determine how many treatment sessions are required.
