Our hands can be quite revealing… the hands age from the inside and outside as lifestyle and genetics play a role. Aged hands may occur due to lessened firmness, loss of volume, and breakdown of collagen, and discoloration of skin. While these signs of aging happen for many other areas of the body, the hands tend to showcase this aging quite noticeably and more extensively. Common characteristics of aged hands include: unsightly veins, protruding joints,bony appearance, loosness, wrinkled texture, roughness, prominent sunspots and dark freckling. Usually patients above the age of 40 request hand rejuvenation when these signs become more apparent.
