Hands age much of the same way that the face does: a loss of volume creates wrinkles, and sun damage thins the skin to cause hyperpigmentation, dryness, visible veins, and uneven texture. “The sun breaks down collagen in the hands, leaving them wrinkled and creating dark spots,” says Dr. Francesca Fusco. “And we wash them constantly and some people Purell® like crazy. They’re exposed to detergents and chemicals all the time.”
Youthful-looking hands are easier to achieve than ever before, thanks to creative uses of technology.
- Fillers are important for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and loose skin, as well as disguising protruding veins and tendons, which become more visible as we age. A sturdy filler like Radiesse® can restore the lost volume, concealing these imperfections
- Fractional lasers like Fraxel® DUAL and Fraxel Re:store help lighten spots and promote collagen development
- To freshen tone and texture, our recommendations (in addition to Fraxel) range from topical brighteners and sunscreens to lasers to remove redness, freckling, and age spots
All together, we can build younger-looking hands from the ground up.
