Wrinkly Hands

Wrinkly hands are a key sign of ageing. The skin on our hands is naturally thin and, with continued exposure to the elements, becomes thinner, drier and rougher, showing signs of ageing more than other area of the body. Skin loses volume, fat and elasticity, especially after the menopause, becoming translucent and shrivelled: this leads to the appearance of protruding veins and wrinkly veins which are particularly telling.

Why do our hands wrinkle as we age?

The ageing process causes the skin in our hands to lose fat stores and collagen, resulting in a loss of volume and firmness. This reduces skin elasticity, making the skin in our hands look thinner and more wrinkled.

Treating Wrinkly Hands

There are four non-invasive hand rejuvenation treatments to help minimise the appearance of this tell-tale sign of ageing. Restore youthful-looking smoothness to wrinkly hands and wrinkly fingers with our leading techniques. All are non-surgical, non-invasive hand lifts.

Profhilo is a highly effective treatment to boost volume and tissue strength in our hands. It uses hyaluronic acid (HA) with a much higher concentration to remodel and improve skin quality. So rather than just adding volume like a filler, it acts to improve skin tissue by boosting and hydrating the skin as well as lifting and tightening sagging tissue in the hands.

Radiesse® is an injectable dermal filler and collagen stimulator that improves volume loss in the back of wrinkly hands. It also improves overall skin quality and visibly rejuvenates the hands. Because Radiesse also acts as a collagen stimulator, results are progressive and long-lasting.

Restylane® Skinboosters™ are particularly suitable for targeting the delicate skin on the back of the hands. They hydrate skin deep in the dermis for ongoing hand hydration, thereby diminishing the appearance of veiny hands and making hands softer and smoother.

Ultherapy is a leading skin tightening procedure that has undergone a clinical trial for hand skin tightening.* By stimulating collagen production in deep layers of the skin using its advanced ultrasound technology, it can help to tighten the crinkly, crepe-like texture of aged, wrinkly hands while improving the appearance of bulging veins in the hands. *Safety and Efficacy Evaluation of Ultherapy™ System in Aging Hand (February 2015).

Radiesse Treatment

As we get older, our skin loses elasticity and moisture. The contours of our face therefore lose their youthful definition and wrinkles and loose skin become more and more apparent. These marked signs of ageing aren’t just on our faces but also in other areas that can’t be covered up, such as veiny hands.

Although moisturising creams and lip salves temporarily help to nourish the skin and mouth, they cannot provide deep skin hydration.
