Three Factors Aging Your Hands

Beautiful hands

Second only to the face, hands are the first body part to show significant signs of aging. In fact, many women (and men) who keep their faces looking young via skin treatments, fillers and surgical procedures like facelifts don’t realize that, all the while, their hands prove a telltale feature that belies true age.

Women are particularly prone to aging hands. That’s because menopause causes a drop in levels of estrogen, the hormone that’s key to plump, healthy skin. As estrogen levels diminish, skin on the hands can lose volume, which leads to wrinkling and prominent veins. But that’s not the only factor at play. Here are three additional reasons your hands may look older than you are.

  • Dehydration: By adulthood, some 60 percent of our bodies are comprised of water. As we get older, however, our bodies begin to lose lean muscle tissue and the water that the muscle tissue holds. Stress also is a top cause of dehydration, no matter your age. To help alleviate the effects, be sure to drink plenty of water, get adequate rest and keep stress at bay.
  • Sun exposure: Nothing saps the moisture from skin like overexposure to the sun’s harsh ultraviolet rays. Sun exposure is a top cause of premature wrinkling, thinning and drying of the skin o your hands, plus brown spots and prominent veins. Avoid being in the sun for extended periods of time and, when you do venture outside, cover up and slather on a high-quality, high-SPF sun screen.
  • Second-thought skincare: When it comes to skincare, most people think only of their faces. But failing to give the skin on the rest of your body, especially your hands, can make even the best facial skincare all for naught. If you haven’t already, adopt a full-body skincare routine and pay particular attention to caring for your hands.

If you’re seeing the signs of aging in your once-beautiful hands, Jacksonville’s Parkway Plastic Surgery can help. For more advanced aging, we offer hand rejuvenation via fat grafting. To prevent or keep early signs of aging at bay, we also offer injections of Radiesse, the only FDA-approved product designed to augment the hands, restoring volume loss. And, throughout March, we’re offering a $50-per-syringe special – a steep discount from the regular $650-per-1.5ml syringe cost. Plus, you’ll go home with a complimentary nail polish.

Restylane & Obagi Combination Offer Long Lasting Beauty Benefits

My skin feels amazing!

Parkway Plastic Surgery is offering great deals on Restylane procedures and Obaji Medical skincare products throughout July.

Want to erase years from your face and keep them off without undergoing surgery? Throughout July, Jacksonville’s Parkway Plastic Surgery is offering a unique set of specials that will help you quickly gain and maintain a smoother, firmer, more youthful and vibrant look via the combination of Restylane injections and Obagi skincare products.

Restylane is an injectable facial filler that uses a hyaluronic acid gel genetically engineered to diminish the effects of aging on your skin and to reshape certain facial contours for a younger look. It’s highly effective in adding or returning youthful volume to the cheeks, lips and eye area, filling deep crevices, plumping fine lines and smoothing acne scars. And, because hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring component of the skin, Restylane offers more natural looking results that last longer than more conventional gel-based fillers.

Obagi is a line of top-shelf skincare products with prescription-strength formulations available only via medical spas, dermatologists and physicians. Collections include Nu-Derm, the top physician-dispensed skin care system to help reduce visible signs of skin aging; Obagi-C Rx, formulated to correct early visible signs of skin aging and maintain younger-looking skin; and Gentle Rejuvenation, developed specifically for sensitive skin.
