Do Your Hands Age You?

by

As we age, our hands tell a tale of their own. A wrinkled, bony hand with large veins and sun spots can seriously date you and may hint at your real age. This can be specially telling if you have taken measures to rejuvenate your face, breasts and body through other surgical or laser treatments. Techniques have been developed to make the hands look younger and restore a more youthful appearance.  The use dermal fillers like Radiesse and Sculptra can be injected into the top of the hand to improve the fullness, but the longer lasting method seems to be fat transfer via injection. The fat can be harvested from other areas of the patient’s body such as the thigh, inner knee or abdomen. Fat grafting is an excellent option since it is typically readily available, has no product cost and may last years.  Don’t let your hands give away your age when your face doesn’t.
