Do your hands make you look older than you are? While it may seem that your hands age faster than your face, that’s not exactly true, especially for women. Women pay a lot of attention to our faces – from a daily skincare routine to facials and other treatments. But we don’t pay as much attention to our hands, which means they can show signs of aging sooner than we would like.
The skin on our hands is thin and fragile, like the skin under our eyes. Years of sun exposure to the hands causes age spots (some call them liver spots) on our hands. This is the result of ultraviolet (UV) rays speeding up melanin production. Melanin gives skin its pigment. But when melanin cells clump together or melanin is produced in high concentrations, it results in age spots. You should know that years of tanning in tanning beds can result in age spots as well.
The good news is that we provide age spot removal treatments that can reverse these signs of aging. We have two main treatments: IPL/Photofacial Treatment and Laser Genesis. Both methods offer permanent removal of the age spots without harming your skin.
