It has been said that you can always tell a woman’s age by her hands, and this maxim could be applied to men as well. It seems a shame, when we invest time and money and take positive steps to maintain a more youthful facial appearance, to have our hands reveal our age away in the end.
Sun exposure can cause age spots that make the hands appear older, but the worst problem with the appearance of the hands is often the loss of volume. This comes with aging, when the body begins to produce less collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid.
Because of volume loss, your hands can become bony and appear aged, with prominent veins, visible tendons, and bones that protrude. In fact, your hands may end up looking much older than the rest of your body, particularly if you have maintained the look of your face and neck.
Fortunately, Radiesse and other cosmetic techniques, in the hands of a skilled practitioner, can be used to make your hands appear younger. You may be a good candidate for hand rejuvenation if your hands:
- Have lost volume
- Are showing prominent veins and tendons
- Have age spots
- Are thin and wrinkled
- Need improved skin tone and color
