Visible ageing is a process that affects the entire body. Most people will agree that along with the face, the hands will also display some noticeable concerns. These can range from: volume loss, thin skin, dry skin and pigmentation. Whilst many people will take steps to maintain a youthful appearance, they can often find that aged hands may be what gives away their age.
As a person gets older, the appearance of the hands often changes for the same reasons as the face. From around the age of 20+, collagen and elastin starts to deplete from the inner structure of the skin. This causes a decrease in tissue mass and elasticity, which leads to a loss of volume and loose skin. As the skin becomes thinner it exposes the veins and makes the fingers look slimmer, giving the hands the bony look that is associated with age. As collagen and elastin decreases, so does the skin’s hydration which results in a dry texture.
The hands are also one part of the body which gets most exposure to the sun and other environmental conditions. UV rays can help to damage the cells in the deeper layers of the dermis, over time, which affects pigmentation and causes the development of age spots.
A person should aim to include their hands as part of their regular skin care regime, to help maintain soft, supple and youthful skin. The Facebible can support this routine with the use of an in-clinic treatment such as: dermal fillers, chemical peels, microneedling or laser treatment for age spots. Depending on your concerns, these treatments can help to improve the condition and internal structure of the skin for hands that look youthful, and are even in texture and tone.
