Treatment of ageing hands
With time the skin of the hands lose elasticity in the dermis and we develop subcutaneous tissue atrophy. The result is skin laxity, visible veins and tendons in the hands. Clients who have had aesthetic treatments often notice that the aged appearance of their hands then contrasts with their renewed facial appearance.
The best form of treatment for this intrinsic ageing is replacement of the lost volume in the deeper tissue planes using either Hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxylapatite dermal fillers. Extrinsic ageing )as a result of sun damage) manifests as scaling or actinic keratoses on the hands, solar lentigines and punctate hypopigmentation. This can be treated by medications (tretinoin, Vitamin C, 5-FU), skin peels and Dermaroller.
