Do You Have Time On Your Hands? (Or more specifically do your hands age you?)

According to a study published in the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, most people can tell your age just by looking at your hands.

Similar to the skin on our face, the skin on the back of our hands becomes thinner and loses volume with time. With the loss of elasticity our hands get wrinkled and can become dry with dead skin cells creating a rough texture. Veins surface and knuckles protrude where there was once smooth, plump skin.

You can turn back the hands of time with treatments like dermal fillers. You may dramatically improve the youthful look of your hands with a single treatment. There are several FDA approved products to consider depending on the texture of your skin. After the filler is placed your hands are massaged to spread the product appropriately across the back of your hands. Usually two syringes are needed in each hand giving beautiful results that can last up to 12 months or more.

Let’s talk about the ways to maintain your investment. The most important practices are to hydrate and protect your skin.

Drinking water is extremely important as we age. It helps to minimize wrinkles. The skin is hydrated from the inside out.

Everytime we wash our hands we alter the skin’s barrier function. It is important to look for hand creams that contain hyaluronic acid or ceramides and use it often. Some of our favorites are Jane Iredale Hand Drink (with an SPF 15) and Elta MD’s Silky Hands (with a 12-hour moisturizer).

Sunscreen is a must.
