Hands are one of the first places where the telltale signs of aging become apparent. Even if you have taken steps to keep your face and neck looking youthful, sun-damaged, veiny, wrinkled hands can make you look older than you are. There are a number of effective techniques to rejuvenate your hands, improving the quality and texture of your skin, while decreasing the wrinkling and prominent veins.
When to Consider Hand Rejuvenation
If your hands would benefit from improved skin tone and color
If your hands are wrinkled and thin
If your hands have age spots
If your hands have prominent veins and tendons because of volume loss
A wide variety of options are available for rejuvenating your hands
After rejuvenation your hands will be smoother and fuller and your veins will be far less prominent.

Multiple procedures might be required to obtain the best results
Hands may be swollen, bruised and stiff after treatment, which will limit activity
If you have a history of impaired healing, such as diabetes, ongoing sun exposure and smoking (or exposure to secondhand smoke) you will see a less dramatic initial result and a shorter lasting result
