Features typical to aging hands are several-fold and present to different degrees. As we age, our hands lose plumpness and firmness, reveal ropey veins, joints, and tendons, and the skin of the back of the hands becomes thinner and flecked with brown spots.
These changes on hands occur, besides due to the natural process of aging, from their extensive unprotected use and sun exposure. Despite the fact that our hands spend a lot of time in the “driver’s seat” wrapped around a steering wheel, few of us remember to put sunscreen on them. While hand creams and sunscreens are a good first line of defense, often they are not enough.
HAND AND ARM VEINS TREATED WITH SCLEROTHERAPY
Unlike hand creams and sunscreens, hand rejuvenation treatments produce dramatic results by restoring the youthful appearance of the hands. The key to success in hand rejuvenation is to decide what anatomic features contribute to the wasted and skeletal look of the aging hand, decide which interventions are needed, and in what sequence. Some of these interventions address the aging skin, while others restore volume or reduce the unsightly veins.
