Are Your Hands Giving Your Age Away?
The hands give away your true age especially when other parts of your skin have been treated or protected from repeated sun exposure.
There are a variety of treatments that can improve the appearance of the hands with little downtime and very little discomfort.
The easiest treatment involves the Alexandrite laser to remove any unwanted pigmentation or brown, "age" spots. These are often removed in as few as one or two treatments leaving the skin with a more uniform, unblemished appearance. Patients love the results of this laser, it is fast, simple, and relatively pain free.
Exfoliation treatments such as microdermabrasion and chemical peels can be done on the hands as well as the face. Chemical peels help to increase cellular turnover, and stimulate collagen production. Peels also work to lighten pigmentation and remove dull, dead skin cells.
A topical cream, such as retinol is for mild cases of dark spots and crepey skin, but works better as a prevention than a full-on treatment.
If you have dark spots and crepey skin, it can help them from getting worse. If you don’t have them yet, it can keep them at bay for a bit longer, but if you have an issue that bothers you now, this probably will not produce the noticeable results that will be satisfying. If you opt for this route it's recommended that you only get pharmaceutical grade retinol,
NOT over-the-counter from the drug store or department store.
