The problem with aging hands

Dermatologist can offer numerous solutions for treating aging skin. This article is for people who are seeking effective treatment for aging hands. Most people fail to recognize premature aging of the hands, as it is quite natural for the primary focus to be on the face and neck. However, it is glaringly obvious when hands have lost their youthful attractiveness. Look at your hands. Are they showing signs of aging?

Damaged hands

It is no secret that our face, neck, and hands get lots of exposure to the sun over the course of our lives. We rarely wear gloves, which means that our hands get so much exposure to ultraviolet rays during the day. Even if you are the type of person who uses sunscreen religiously, it gets worn off very quickly. As we age, the skin on the backs of our hands can become significantly less attractive as it loses its ability to produce collagen. When this happens, the skin is much thinner and more prone to wrinkles. Hands that once were characterized by youthful plumpness, have now become boney, covered with age spots, and are eventually plagued with spots of scaly texture and veins.

Treatment options

Even if you apply a skin moisturizer or wear moisture-retaining gloves at night; you may not be able to diminish age spots or replenish plumpness.
