Ageing Hands

Loss of volume in the hands can cause crepey, saggy, wrinkled skin to appear.

UV exposure, smoking, ageing or use of steroid creams can cause collagen and elastin in the hands to deplete, causing the skin on the hands to appear loose and saggy.

Hand Rejuvenation

Along with the eyes and neck, your hands are one of the first areas to start displaying the telltale signs of ageing. It also doesn’t help that your hands are on full display most of the time, meaning others can easily notice changes in their appearance. Yet as we age, the fat and collagen in the back of our hands diminish, resulting in thin, translucent and crepey skin that is more prone to developing wrinkles and age spots.

Other Causes of Ageing Hands?

Sun exposure plays a significant role in the ageing process. It’s been scientifically proven that UV radiation contributes to premature ageing by degrading collagen and inducing oxidative stress (imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants in the body, which can lead to cell and tissue damage). Our hands are often not protected as well as other areas of skin and are constantly exposed to harsh elements. This is a major reason why your hands may give away your true age or can even make you look older.

Lifestyle habits also contribute greatly to the premature ageing of our hands. For one, we’re all washing and sanitising our hands a lot more than we used to. This frequent washing, coupled with the fact that our hands have fewer sebaceous glands, can have the unintended consequence of disrupting the skin’s pH and stripping away natural oils. Often the result is dryness, sensitivity and flare-ups in inflammatory skin conditions.

What Can I Do to Slow Down the Ageing Process?

Have you started noticing that your hands look older than you’d like? It’s never too late to start taking good care of them. Just like your face, your hands need to be well taken care of in order to protect them against visible signs of ageing. Here are a few simple steps that you start today.
● Apply a broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen (SPF50 or higher) every day to protect your hands from UV radiation
● Use a mild exfoliant on the back of your hands once a week to help slough off dead skin
● Apply moisturiser, i.e. hand cream, frequently to keep the skin on your hands hydrated.
● Wear cotton-lined gloves when gardening or when cleaning with harsh soap or chemicals.

Can I Reverse the Effects of Ageing Hands?

Sometimes you need regenerative treatments that work to slow down the ageing process on a cellular level by stimulating collagen and elastin. For such treatments, you will require an in-office appointment with a skilled and experienced practitioner. At Dr Aesthetica, we offer several treatment options for ageing hands. Our focus is providing the appropriate treatment for you based on the condition of your skin and general health, ensuring you get the best results.

One such solution? Injectable Dermal Filler to restore volume and regain a youthful appearance of the hands. This is an excellent way to hide the appearance of prominent veins and tendons by filling in the skin tissue around them. The fillers we use have both been approved by the FDA for effectively and safely adding back lost volume to the hands.

Chemical Peels are a great way to lighten sun spots and refresh the skin on your hands. Peels are topically applied formulas that revitalise the skin surface by creating an even and controlled shedding of the skin cells. All of our skin peels are sourced from AlumierMD (a world-class provider of medical-grade skincare products).

Home-based anti-ageing skincare is another popular treatment option. It also doubles as a preventative measure. This means you don’t have to wait until you see the telltale signs of ageing on your hands to do something. Yet, people often focus so much on facial anti-ageing treatment that they forget about their hands. That’s why we offer our clients comprehensive guidance on choosing the correct anti-ageing skincare products for their hands. Talk to us today.
