While many patients think of the face as being the first place to show aging, this isn’t exactly the truth. In fact, the hands are actually more noticeable when it comes to signs of aging, due to the fact that the hands get extensive exposure each and every day. The visible signs of aging, including the hands’ natural exposure to sunlight, can cause concerns including age spots, precancerous growths, and even loss of fatty tissues causing a bone, frail appearance.
How can I address aging on the hands?
Aging of the face can be address with surgical and non-surgical options, though aging of the hands often encourages less invasive alternatives. There are a few ways in which patients can rejuvenate their hands. First, the use of dermal fillers to add volume and address a bony appearance is the first step. Juvéderm is a popular hyaluronic acid filler that can be injected into specific areas of the hands to improve their overall appearance. These injectables will often last approximately six months before reinjection is needed. Second, laser skin rejuvenation and resurfacing can assist with pigmentation issues and growths. We use our laser devices at our practice over the skin of the hand to reduce precancerous growths and age spots. This results in a more youthful appearance as well.
