WHAT CAUSES AGING HANDS?
Aging, duh! At least, that’s the short answer. There are three main factors that can contribute to aging hands: sun damage, genetics and medications that cause photosensitivity and atrophy. Additionally, as you age, the elasticity of the skin on your hands as well as the abundance of collagen begins to dissipate, making the skin on your hands look and feel more fragile.
While starting a hand-focused skincare routine is important (seriously, sunscreen is crucial), there are treatments that can reduce the visible signs of aging. Both dermal fillers and collagen induction therapy are great options for patients looking to repair their hands.
- Dermal fillers (Juvéderm®, Restylane, Sculptra)
