Are your hands showing your age? Perhaps the wrinkled skin and prominent tendons on the back of your hands are unfairly adding years to your appearance. You are not alone.
You don’t have to be a hand model to want more attractive hands. Not only do your hands have delicate skin, but they are among the most exposed parts of your entire body. While others may see and come in contact with your hands on a daily basis, this part of your body is also especially exposed to elements such as sunlight and sanitizer products – which will only cause damage to the skin over time. Coupled with the natural aging process of volume loss and diminishing skin elasticity, this can hasten the appearance of aging hands even more.
Signs of Aging Hands
Aging hands often have a skeleton-like appearance with thin, creped skin and raised tendons and prominent blood vessels. This can be largely blamed on the natural loss of fat and collagen in the skin as we get older. In addition, there is an atrophy of the intrinsic muscles of the hand over time that contributes and exaggerates the bulging appearance of the tendons, veins and metacarpal bones on top of the hands. Age spots, dark spots and loose/wrinkled skin are also common in aging hands. Fortunately, a qualified plastic surgeon can help.
