As collagen and elastin are lost, the hands become thin, crepey and less elastic. “It’s that loss of elastin and collagen coupled with photodamage and the aging process itself that causes the skin to become loose,” says Nanuet, NY, dermatologist Heidi Waldorf, MD.
Just like how skin tighteners address loose skin on the body, they can also be used to correct slack skin on the hands. “I like to use a radiofrequency treatment like Thermage,” says Dr. Heidi Waldorf. Since each skin tightening treatment is different, the machine your doctor uses dictates how many treatments are required—in most cases, only one. Starting at $800
