When it comes to aging, most women think of their face first. But that's not the only part of the body that causes insecurity and unhappiness in women of all ages. In terms of aging, hands rank only below the face and neck when it comes to showing the signs of years passing.
Aging is a natural process that can't be completely prevented. But there are some habits that lead to an increase in signs of aging, especially when it comes to the skin. These include smoking, exposure to the sun and rapid weight loss.
Thankfully, for those who are truly bothered by the signs of aging on the back of their hands, help is available. Radiesse has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as the first injectable wrinkle treatment for hands. It's a simple dermal filler that restores volume and youthfulness to the skin on the back of the hands. It also helps reduce the appearance of veins, fine lines and wrinkles.
In addition to an instant improvement in the appearance of the skin, Radiesse prompts the body to create more collagen, which is responsible for keeping skin hydrated and voluminous. The treatment can last up to two years, though in most cases patients report needing a follow-up treatment closer to one year after initial injection.
To prevent signs of aging on the hands, Dr. Davis recommends keeping hands moisturized. Using sunscreen is also imperative to retain the youthful look of skin. The back of the hands is one of the most often missed spots when it comes to applying sun protection. Using products that contain Vitamin C can also help skin retain its youthful look.
