Plagued by aging hands?

Dermatologist in Charlotte, NC

Dermatologists can offer lots of solutions to treat aging skin, and this includes effective treatment for aging hands. Most people are concerned about premature aging of the skin, and it is quite natural for the focus to be on the face and neck. However, it is important that you do not overlook hands that have lost their youthful attractiveness. Look at your hands. Are they showing signs of aging?

Damaged, aging hands

Just as much as our face and neck, our hands get excessive exposure to the sun over the course of our life. We use our hands so much during the day, even if we use sunscreen, it can get worn off very quickly. The skin on the backs of our hands can become significantly less attractive as it loses its ability to produce collagen, leaving the skin much thinner and more prone to wrinkles. Hands, once characterized by youthful plumpness, become boney and are eventually replaced with a scaly texture, age spots, and veins.
