Hands Giving Away Your Age?

We live in an age conscious era. Nowadays, people are living longer, staying active, and often feel younger than their actual age. I consult with people everyday who want to look their best. For some, it is because they feel competitive stress in a youth oriented job market, and for others it is simply to look their best. My goal is to bring out the natural beauty in each individual. Most people logically focus on their face; however, one often forgotten area, the hands, can also impact how we look.

Just like every part of our body, our hands are subject to both chronological aging— which simply happens over time— as well as aging that occurs with repeated sun exposure. The signs of aging that typical appear on the hands include more noticeable veins and tendons, as well as the appearance of brown spots. Both can be minimized with new advances.

I am a big fan of simplicity and prevention. The simplest and most effective advice to prevent the signs of aging anywhere on the body is with a generous use of sunscreen and sun avoidance. I highly recommend investing in sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher; sun exposure thins the skin making vessels and tendons more apparent.

If you believe your hands are aging quicker than you are, there are various options available to make hands look younger. Firstly, we can remove your brown spots with the PicoWay Laser. This laser is highly effective in targeting the brown pigment and erasing any unwanted spots. Secondly, injectable fillers can restore lost volume and minimize the appearance of vessels and tendons. This instant rejuvenation can be seen in a matter of minutes. During your appointment, we will determine the best method of treatment designed for you.

If the appearance of your hands bother you, we would be happy to help turn back the hands of time. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please don’t hesitate to contact us today at (925) 838-4900!
