Hand rejuvenation involves several different treatments or combinations of these. As we get less young, our concerns are with dry hands, wrinkly hands, veiny hands or age spots on hands. An anti-aging hand cream can help with all these conditions. However, there is a limit to what can be achieved with even the best anti-aging hand cream.
The earliest signs of ageing can occur in our hands. Hand ageing is marked with loss of fat, increased visibility of veins, so-called veiny hands. Sun damage is responsible for the appearance of age spots on the hand’s, wrinkly hands and dry hands. The last is the most difficult to treat. So what are your treatment options for hand rejuvenation?
Hand Rejuvenation for Veiny Hands
The term veiny hands refer to the appearance of veins and tendons on the backs of hands. Veiny hands are a natural ageing process because of fat atrophies faster on the hands than other parts of the body.
Hand treatments to disguise prominent veins involves replacing lost volume. Fat transfer or dermal fillers are typically used to restore volume. Radiesse filler is especially useful to improve the appearance of veiny hands.
Hand Treatments for Dry Hands & Wrinkly Hands
Dry hands and wrinkly hands are caused by severe damage and elastosis. The resulting damage causes changes to the surface layers of skin resulting in impaired ability to retain moisture. So no matter how much anti-aging hand cream has applied the hands still appear dry and wrinkly. A good anti-aging hand cream can help. However, additional resurfacing treatments are needed to improve dry hands from sun damage.
Dry & wrinkly hands can be treated with:
- Chemical peels – TCA peels are especially useful because they provide remodelling.
- radio frequency resurfacing
- laser resurfacing
Best Anti-aging Hand Cream
The best anti-aging hand cream for wrinkly and dry hands should include retinol, exfoliants as well as moisturiser rich in natural moisturising factors & niacinamide. These are the same components used for anti-aging skin care on your face. In fact, you can use your facial skin care on your hands. Choosing an affordable brand such as The Ordinary becomes really important.
Hand rejuvenation for Age Spots on Hands
Hand treatments for age spots involve:
- Chemical peel, once again TCA peel is an excellent choice, as it removes damaged surface layers where the hyperpigmentation resides, removing age spots. A series of 4-6 sessions, spaced monthly may be required. We have specialised hand peel with 20% TCA, but can progress to 25% and even spot treatment with 40% TCA.
- IPL and pigment lasers, target age spots on hands, they have little effect on remodelling skin, so starting with TCA peels may be the most appropriate. IPL and pigment laser may require 2-4 treatments.
- The CO2 laser is also an excellent choice for skin resurfacing and will target pigment as well as rejuvenation for dry hands and wrinkly hands. Usually, one or two treatments are required. Once again if there is fat depletion, then additional treatment for veiny hand appearance will be necessary.
