How To Make Your Hands Look Younger

We spend time and money trying to make the skin on our face look younger, but we often neglect the skin on our hands. Unfortunately, that's what tends to give away our age. That's why we spoke with Coral Gables, FL, dermatologist Flor Mayoral, MD, to find out how to get our hands back in tip-top shape with the use of treatments such as radio-frequency, injectables and topical products. Watch the video to see what she says.

Here's how I see it. Everything ages the moment it's born. We own a house and we scrape & paint it when paint chips and looks worn. We get a dent in out car and we fix it. We patch our clothing, we tear out and repair an old floor. Some of us dye our hair. Why is our skin, our age, our appearance any different? Age is something to be maintained. It does not have to be last on our list of fixit's. There is so much technology and science available to us today. Truly... we are so lucky to be able to push that pause button.

Aging is an awful thing. Try getting a job after 50. Especially for women, you are always judged by your appearance. Most unemployed people are middle aged women. I am doing anti aging treatments to stay in the game as sad as that is, it is reality.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion and everyone is entitled to do whatever they want to do to their body. If something goes wrong or the results are not as expected, they are aware of that from the beginning and only have them to blame for making those choices.

Yes, we have become a bit obsessive with the anti aging procedures, but honestly its not all about personal vanity. In this tight job market there is definite age discrimination - look "older" and you very well may be passed over for a job or a promotion. Divorced or single women also have more pressure on them to look younger in order to attract a potential mate. The way we look is directly tied to our ability to survive! Right or wrong, it is what it is, and I spend a good chunk of money every month to keep myself looking a good 10-12 years younger than my age and I think its worth it.

We are becoming such a plastic society. Hands look aged? Please! Moisturize them. Just be glad you don't have arthritis! Instead of spending so much money on such a senseless procedure, why not give the money toward education? Yes, we might be looking good but there are a LOT of stupid people and our youth is being dumbed down!

Toni - I agree! This nonsense about growing old gracefully is for the birds, I intend to go kicking and screaming!

Accepting the fact that we are aging is giving in. I don't want to LOOK old. That being said, I'm not going to go to great lengths, but some treatment options may be doable. People tell me all the time that I have great looking skin. That's because I take very good care of it. My hands, not so much. But I will from now on!

I intend to fight the aging process down to the wire. New technologies are available so why not take advantage?

Dr. Mayoral does an excellent job explainig hand rejuvenation. This will be a very good reference for our patients asking about treatment options for common problems such as skin laxity, volume loss, and prominent veins and tendons.Well done!

Yvonne, you are so right. How many body parts will we need to have procedures on as we get older. I've been using a had moisturizer with sunscreen everyday and it has helped. Target has a great one for $15 which also helps with age spots.

OR... we can just except that we are getting older and simply keep them clean, moisturized and a nice manicure and call it a day. The sad,hidden message here is that aging is an awful thing.
