Wrinkly skin on the arms and hands with aging

Being very honest here. There is really nothing that truly “cures” wrinkly skin, at this point in time.
Here are the things that help:
  • Right away, a high zinc containing sunscreen on this area every morning, and the Bloxsun driving gloves in the car. This allow the skin to begin to repair itself
  • Use the same skincare products on this area as you are using on your faceneck and chest
  • Start a glycolic acid cream at night like the Glypro.
  • Consider a series of 3 Fraxel Duals for the forearms or arms and hands over a 6-9 month period. Repairs skin and removes old sun damaged skin.
  • Consider using filler in the hands to hide the veins. Juvederm Ultra Plus is a good choice. This is FDA off-label so only used a very experienced doctor/nurse. Think one syringe per hand.
The above is a good start!

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?!
