I am 44 and have had old wrinkled hands since my late 20’s it is something that runs in my family as even my younger brothers hands look like he’s a 50 year old. I look quite young otherwise for my age until you see my hands. I have very deep wrinkles mainly over my knuckles and fingers when I make a fist they look alot better so I find myself now clenching my fists all the time so people won’t notice my horrible wrinkles. What can u do and what is the cost involved.
You could look at a couple of treatments to help improve the appearance of your hands . Firstly, you can improve the volume in the back of the hands by injecting a dermal filler or transferring your own fat there. Dermal fillers are simpler to administer, but fat tends to last longer and is better value in the long-term.
To improve the pigmentation and skin texture, you could look at a laser treatment, such as the fractional carbon dioxide laser (for skin resurfacing and wrinkles) or Gemini laser (for brown spots). Skin on the back of hands tends to be thinner and heal less quickly than the face, and laser treatments need to be reduced in intensity. Therefore, usually multiple lighter laser treatments are required rather than one stronger one.
