03 May How To Reverse Signs of Aging Hands
The lines in the palm of your hands won’t reveal secrets about your life, but the back of your hands would!
If you’re afraid of giving away your age— and you try hiding it in every way possible, you probably have a ton of facial anti-aging products lying in the bathroom, from expensive day creams to rejuvenating facial washes.
While all these can be quite effective, many are overlooking one body feature that’s likely to be spilling the beans on just how many candles will be burning on your next birthday cake—and that is your hands.
Signs Your Hands Are Getting Old
Since the skin on the back of your hands is much thinner than that of your face, your hands can even show signs of aging faster than your face—and can make you seem older than you are.
The lack of using sunscreen can cause sunspots and wrinkles, which are the first signs of aging hands. Damage of collagen and thinning of skin are a result of years of exposure to UV light without any protection.

It’s a no-brainer that your hands need to stay hydrated and moisturized, since they’re constantly being overworked and dried by irritants like soap and water.
Over the years this starts to appear as dry patches, where your hands look dehydrated, red, itchy, and old.
Who Says You Can’t Get New Hands?
So, by a show of hands, how many of you have old-looking hands? Thankfully, dermatologists and cosmetic doctors can work their magic and treat any signs of aging. One of the most common and effective skin treatments is microdermabrasion, which is most often used on the face but can also be used to exfoliate the skin on other body parts— including hands.
This exfoliation peels off the outermost layer of the skin—the epidermal stratum corneum— which triggers the body’s natural regenerative process, building collagen and reducing the appearance of sunspots.

Rejuvenate Your Hands
– Hand Fillers
Many of us are familiar with the concept of dermal fillers for their face to restore volume, fill out wrinkles—and to look more youthful. The same concept can apply to the hands. With hand fillers, our dermatologists can replace the volume to the hands through a tiny injection of dermal fillers. The formulation injected by our skin care experts in Dubai contains a numbing anesthetic to alleviate discomfort. The product is supple and is able to fill areas of the back of the hands where loss of volume is visible. The end product is hands that look young.
The appearance of your hands is as important as the appearance of your face and body. Veiny and wrinkling skin of your hands can tell more about your age than you might think. With proper skin care, you can treat two areas that significantly contribute to signs of aging on your hands: age spots and volume loss.
