Ageing Hands

Just as the rest of our bodies age, so do the hands and developing ageing hands is one of the first places on the body where getting older is most visible.
The ageing process causes the skin to lose collagen and elastin - the substances that help the skin to retain its youthful volume and ability to bounce back. As the backs of the hands naturally have thinner skin, compared to other areas of the body, this process has a more noticeable effect.

As well as the face and neck, the hands are most often uncovered. Exposure to the sun can speed up the rate at which ageing skin develops, as UV light contributes to the breakdown of collagen and elastin fibres. The skin on the hands can change in quality, as it starts to become drier and crepey looking, along with wrinkles, pigmentation issues or age spots. Fatty tissue is less prevalent on the hands. Losing volume form an area where the skin is already thinner can cause the hands to start looking bony and the veins to look more prominent.
Another big factor for helping to age the hands is frequent washing and exposure to the many products that we use on a daily basis. The skin on the hands naturally contains less oil and less sebaceous glands, so by stripping the skin of these essential oils contributes further to the skin prematurely ageing.

Many people take great care to look after the skin on their face and neck, but can often forget that the hands require just as much tender loving care. Applying moisturising creams on a daily basis as well as a suitable SPF can help to keep the skin soft and supple and protected from the sun’s harmful rays. At Light Touch Clinic Profhilo bio remodelling can help to rejuvenate the appearance of ageing hands by lifting, tightening, filling and hydrating the skin. A range of advanced skin care is also available upon recommendation from one of their team of expert aestheticians. This can help to keep the skin in great condition and replace lost moisture for smooth and supple skin. Dermal fillers can also be applied to add volume for a plump, more youthful look.
