Your Beauty Is In Your Hands

Our hands are constantly running small errands. Doing dishes, cleaning dusty shelves and floors with all sorts of detergents keep our hands busy, but not healthy. You can try hard to keep the look of your face younger, but your hands will always give away your age, or even make you feel and look older.

“Aging of your hands can become obvious in your 30s if you have had a lot of sun exposure,” said Dr. Kevin Smith, dermatologist at Niagara Falls Dermatology & Skin Care Centre. “Smoking can accelerate aging of the hands and other parts of their body, in particular in people who also get a lot of sun exposure or who use tanning beds.”

Sun exposure not only causes freckles, it gradually makes your skin thinner, and this makes the bones and the veins more visible. Arthritis that people may develop with age can also affect the look of your hands.

According to Dr. Smith, Candela ATV laser can help you to fade or eliminate brown spots. This is a simple, very safe procedure, and improvement is seen within 10 days. Before completely fading away, the brown spots may darken, and your skin may be a little bit inflamed, however this inflammation disappears within a few days.

Another popular treatment is fillers, which are injected into the back of your hands. Dr. Smith said a couple of syringes of Juvederm Ultra or Juvederm Volbella will make a big esthetic difference, adding necessary fullness to your hands and minimizing the look of bones and veins.

Your beauty is in your hands. You can prevent their premature aging by following simple tips. Dr. Smith recommends rinsing off your hands for at least 30 seconds after each wash, as soap tends to irritate the skin. He also discourages anyone from smoking and suggests we always wear sunscreen on our hands.

“Or be like the Queen and always wear gloves: when you are outside in the garden, use gardening gloves; if you are riding a bike, use biking glows; and use golf gloves when golfing,” emphasized Dr. Smith. “Do everything to protect your hands.”
