In Maryland, skin care goes far beyond the face. While many people take preventative care of their faces and bodies, the care of hands often goes overlooked. However, there are ways to protect the beauty of the hands with treatments that work to revitalize and rejuvenate aging skin.
Aging in the hands starts to occur in your mid 40s and 50s. Dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons often encourage their younger patients to take preventative care of their skin. Signs of aging result from exposure to ultraviolet rays, particularly UVA rays. These rays penetrate deeper layers of the skin, causing age spots. To prevent damage and protect your hands, use a broad spectrum sunblock on both your face and your hands. You can also consider topical agents designed to treat premature aging. Look for products containing hydroquinone, tretinoin, and retinoids for the most effective treatments.
Cosmetic Procedures for Hand Rejuvenation
There are also a few cosmetic procedures designed to restore and revive the look of aging hands. Skin care products that were created to rejuvenate the face can also be used to restore the hands.
Laser resurfacing treatments can effectively remove age spots and freckles. Injectables and dermal fillers can replace lost collagen. You can discuss these options with your doctor to find the right solutions for your skin and hands.
