Aging Hands

The most common complaints relate to brown spots, veins that are too prominent, and crinkley skin. Here’s what being done most commonly.

IPL laser or Fraxel Dual laser for the brown spots; Juvederm, Restylane or Radiesse to plump the back of the hands and camouflage the veins; and lasers (Fraxel or fractionated CO2 laser) or radiofrequency (Excilis best) to tighten skin and reduce the wrinkles. Don’t forget to keep sunscreen on them and use an antioxidant daily (like the SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF).

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
