Are you struggling to prevent hand wrinkles from settling in sooner than you’d like? There are some techniques and lifestyle choices you can make to stop hand wrinkles and the signs of aging. There is also a regenerative procedure called Lypo-Gold, which can also help you if all the other do’s and don’ts didn’t pan out. Elite Aesthetics Institute teaches the Lypo-Gold Method, but also has a list of providers who are trained and ready to assist you in your beauty journey.
Hand Do’s & Don’ts
You know that your hands do a lot throughout the day, whether you’re in more labor-intensive work or not, your hands are in constant motion and activity. Over time, skin thins and the fat in the back of your hands diminishes, no matter how much you use them. And this aging causes wrinkles, age spots and diminished elasticity, which can produce more sagging skin than usual. Also, excessive hand washing can reduce the amount of natural oils in your hands, leading them to become more dry and cracked.
Keeping your hands moisturized will help them to retain their elasticity, and maintain their hydration. Apply sunscreen to your hands or even glove up when exposing them to longer sun exposure. Using a simple lemon and sugar scrub to exfoliate your hands and remove dead skin cells can help keep your hands lustrous. You can also seek treatments to remove the outer layer of your hand’s skin. Procedures like dermablading, dermabrasion and chemical exfoliation will do the trick, leaving you with improved texture and tone of your skin, helping to reduce hand wrinkles.
Preventing Hand Wrinkles
What many people may not realize is the negative effects smoking has on your skin. You hear many of the health risks associated with smoking, but you may not realize that smoking can cause skin damage fairly easily. Nicotine causes blood vessels to narrow, depleting their oxygen flow and nutrients to the skin. Smoking also decreases the collagen production of your skin, leaving it drier and more susceptible to wrinkles and premature aging. Smoking also leads to “smokers skin” which leaves your skin grey, dull, pale and crinkly. Stopping smoking now can’t undo any skin damage that’s already present, but it can help decrease any future skin damage caused by smoking.
Going more in depth for your wrinkles, like cosmetic surgery, can be a viable option, but choose wisely. Botox, a go-to for facial cosmetic surgery, really has no value as a hand cosmetic surgery. Botox inhibits muscle movements but doesn’t have any effect on volume loss, which is the natural aging process that leads to hand wrinkles. And surgeries to remove excess skin on your hands typically leaves more problems than results. There’s risks involved, such as poor or improper healing, along with scarring, which may leave more damaged-looking skin than when you started.
The Lypo-Gold Method
In terms of cosmetic surgery though, the Lypo-Gold Method is a clear winner. The method involves extracting a small amount of fat cells from your body, typically from the belly area. These fat cells will be “processed” to obtain more regenerative adult stem cells. We inject the cells into specific locations of your hands, specifically to help tighten and firm up your hands, eliminating wrinkles and improving skin’s elasticity. This procedure spurs new collagen, elastin fibers and hyaluronic acid production, improving your hand’s texture and appearance. Lypo-Gold is minimally-invasive, getting you back onto your feet in no time. And with just one session, the effects can last up to 18 months!
