• Description

    Aging hands exhibit signs such as thinning skin, wrinkles, and age spots due to reduced collagen production, sun exposure, and repetitive movements, highlighting both intrinsic and extrinsic factors in the aging process.

  • Cause

    Aging hands result from a combination of intrinsic factors, such as decreased collagen and elastin production, leading to loss of skin elasticity and firmness. Extrinsic factors like prolonged sun exposure contribute to the formation of age spots, wrinkles, and thinning of the skin on the hands. Additionally, repetitive movements and decreased fat volume in the hands over time can further exacerbate the appearance of aging.

  • Treatment

    Volume loss of the skin on the hands can be treated with thicker hyaluronic acid fillers such as Juvederm Voluma, Restylane, Lyft, Versa, or calcium hydroxylapatite fillers such as Radiesse. These results can last anywhere from 6 months to 1 year.

    Vein treatment for visible veins can be done with the use of sclerotherapy or the use of lasers such as the Nd-Yag.

    Loose skin over the hands can result from loss of collagen and elastin. Treatments such as radiofrequency or Fraxel laser can be effective in helping to tighten loose redundant skin. Fillers in combination with radiofrequency lasers are usually the most effective for the treatment of the skin over time.
