What Can You Do To Combat Aging Hands and Age Spots?
Your Neglected Hands
People tend to focus on the face and neck when it comes to anti-aging treatments. However, thin, wrinkled hands are often a giveaway of your real age. No matter how much you tone and tighten other areas of the body, your hands will tell the truth. There is no more evidence of this than on the red carpet. Pay attention to the hand of aging celebrities. Though their faces and bodies appear youthful, their hands often appear wrinkled and are riddled with veins.
Why Do Hands Age?
Your hands are more exposed to the sun than other areas of your body, and they tend to lose a great deal of moisture in colder temperatures. This constant exposure to the elements can age your hands more quickly than any other area of your body. When you are considering age-defying treatments, do not forget to treat your hands as well.
How to Reverse the Signs of Aging Hands
One telltale sign of age is age spots, also known as liver spots. Once you reach the age of 50, you will notice these brown patches on your hands. These spots appear simply because you have been exposed to the sun longer than someone who is younger. If these spots bother you, you can have them faded or removed by undergoing laser skin resurfacing treatments. Laser treatments can reduce wrinkled skin on the hands as well.
Age you age, your hands will lose volume as well. Your hands will begin to look frail, and the veins will become more noticeable. Dermal fillers are not just used to plump up targeted areas on your face. A filler can be injected into your hands as well. This will make your hands appear plumper, and veins will be less noticeable.
