Signs Of Aging Hands And How To Treat Them

Signs Of Aging Hands And How To Treat Them
Feb 02, 2023

Aging is natural. Your body will experience a variety of changes as you get older. Some of the most noticeable aging symptoms typically manifest on the surface of your skin, particularly on your hands. 

As we age, many of us care for our facial skin but ignore our hands. You can let your hands age naturally while maintaining their beauty by caring for their skin and getting the necessary skin rejuvenating treatments at OC Beauty Medspa. 

Let's examine the aging skin on the hands in more detail, as well as what you can do to maintain the youthful appearance of your hands.

Body Positivity Includes Improvements

Body positivity is all about feeling good in one's skin regardless of how society and pop culture might stigmatize certain bodily characteristics and glorify others. All hands are beautiful, but what if you don't feel too great about them and what to give them a little boost? 

Everyday pressure and responsibilities can drain you of all your energy and leave you exhausted. This can accelerate your aging process at a rate that isn't suitable for your age. A trip to the spa can be super relaxing, but the effects are short-term and require you to make a visit frequently. With our Newport Beach Med Spa, you can have your hands revitalized in a matter of hours without having to make spa trips for maintenance regularly. 

When looking for more sustainable and long-lasting ways to feel more comfortable in your own skin, a med spa clinic is most certainly the best of all options. A trip to the med spa can leave you with an elevated sense of self and boost your esteem. 

Stress and daily chores can take a toll on a person. This can be accompanied by feelings of exhaustion and frustration. It is true when they say if you look good, you feel good. Whether you're getting a botox in Orange County or just a lips filler, these procedures end with you looking better than ever. After all, isn't that the ultimate goal? 

OC Beauty Medspa uses proven clinical techniques to address aging and health concerns. The treatments tend to last longer and make the skin and body feel much better than coming from a trip to a traditional spa. 

Signs For Aging Hands


When discussing aging, wrinkles are the top concern. Many people are primarily concerned with facial wrinkles, but others feel like younger-looking hands are a higher priority. 

Wrinkles are unavoidable and a natural part of the aging process. As you grow older, your hands lose fat while the skin begins to lose its elasticity. This causes translucency of skin that eventually leads to wrinkles. 

As compared to the rest of the body, hands feel the brunt of day-to-day life. This makes them more vulnerable to getting wrinkles than the rest of the body. Not to mention the excessive use of hand sanitizers during and post-pandemic leaving hands dry and crusty. 

Age Spots/ Sunspots

Age spots, unlike the name, aren't really caused by aging. They're a consequence of excessive sun exposure. These are mostly called age spots rather than sun spots since they become significantly more visible as you age. 

The sun's harsh ultraviolet waves cause harm to the skin. Even if you apply sunscreen, it's possible to miss spots (or entire hands) or forget to reapply. This is also one of the reasons why sunspots are so common in individuals with accelerated aging symptoms.  

Loose Skin

As we get older, the skin starts to lose collagen and elastin. These substances are responsible for keeping the skin looking tight, youthful, and plump. 

Loose skin is one of the most common signs of aging in hands. Dish soap, harsh weather, and sun, along with cuts and scars over the years, accumulate as you age. These play a part in breaking down the skin and loosening them from the initial form they were once in. 

Dehydration and lack of moisturizing also contribute to the early aging of hands.  

Dry Skin

Dermatologists suggest that the lack of use of natural oils, sun damage, and lowered cell generation/renewal are the leading causes of dry and patchy skin when aging. Age-induced dryness is a common phenomenon. As time passes, this dryness can translate to skin sensitivity as well, which can be quite problematic in the longer run. 

Dryness paired with thin, aging skin can lead to skin cracking up. A quick, easy fix involves regularly applying lotion and moisturizing as much as possible, while the long-term solution involves hand Botox or hand rejuvenation treatments. 

Brittle Nails

Stained and brittle nails can really mess with your confidence if you catch someone staring, especially on a day when you're particularly down in the dumps. 

Sometimes it could feel like no matter what you do. You can't fix your nails from being stained and brittle. Harsh chemicals, soaps, and weather can take a toll on your nails over the years.

How to Age Backwards?

Hands Botox 

Botox injections can minimize or eliminate the appearance of fine lines and even prevent the onset of wrinkles and sagging. These are many times applied to hands in two batches. Just a few units of botox on each hand can leave the hands looking smoother and more youthful. 

Filler Treatment (hand rejuvenation)

You should opt for a skin rejuvenation treatment if you want to get rid of bulging and prominent veins, have hollow spaces, and translucent skin due to thinning and fat loss 

The experts at OC Beauty Medspa organize extensive consultations with clients before recommending procedures of all kinds. They mark out points where there's a larger amount of aged area. Once the numbing cream is applied, the hand is ready to be injected with the necessary fillers. The small needles fill up the skip making it smoother than ever 

Laser Treatment For Dull Skin And Dry Spots

Laser treatments are a highly efficient method to remove impurities and drive spots from the skin. 

An Intensive Pulse Light is used to perfect skin with imperfections and cure dark areas. It creates light that the dark skin cells absorb. The darker skin cell absorbs more energy, getting destroyed in the process. 

So, if you want to treat aging hands, get in touch with OC Beauty Medspa.
