How the Aging Process Affects Our Hands
As we age, it is not just our faces that show the signs of time. Our hands, with their constant exposure to environmental factors and repetitive movements, can also betray the effects of aging. (1) If you find yourself noticing signs of aging in your hands, rest assured that there are effective solutions available to restore the youthful beauty of your most expressive features.
Hand Aging Facts
- Prominent veins on the hands can be a telltale sign of aging.
- Over time, the collagen and elastin fibers in our hands break down, leading to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Excessive sun exposure can cause the development of age spots, also known as liver spots or sunspots, on the hands.
- Thinning skin and loss of elasticity are common signs of aging hands.
- Dryness and crepey texture can contribute to an aged appearance of the hands.
Hand rejuvenation can help improve the appearance of your hands, making them look younger, smoother, and more vibrant. Whether you desire to reduce wrinkles, fade age spots, tighten loose skin, or address any other concerns, Dr. Naar can guide you through the process and help you achieve beautiful and natural-looking results.
The Merz Scale
The Merz Hand Grading Scale (MHGS) is a 5-point scale that grades skin in the dorsum (back) of the hand. (2)
- 0 – No loss of fatty tissue.
- 1 – Mild loss of fatty tissue. Slight visibility of veins.
- 2 – Moderate loss of fatty tissue. Mild visibility of veins and tendons.
- 3 – Severe loss of fatty tissue. Moderate visibility of veins and tendons.
- 4 – Very severe loss of fatty tissue. Marked visibility of veins and tendons.
Hand Rejuvenation with Sclerotherapy
One of the most effective treatments for hand rejuvenation is sclerotherapy. This minimally invasive procedure involves injecting a special solution into the veins on the back of the hands, causing them to collapse and fade away. Sclerotherapy not only reduces the appearance of bulging veins but also improves overall skin texture and tone, giving your hands a smoother and more even complexion.
What is Sclerosing Fluid?
The composition of sclerosing fluid consists of specific chemical compounds that are selected to induce the desired effects within the veins. These compounds are chosen based on their ability to irritate the inner lining of the veins, leading to a controlled inflammation response. (3) This inflammation triggers the natural healing process of the body, resulting in the closure and eventual disappearance of the treated veins.
Hand Rejuvenation with Sculptra
Sculptra is a unique injectable treatment by Galderma that stimulates collagen production, helping to restore lost volume and smooth out wrinkles. Unlike traditional dermal fillers, Sculptra works gradually over time, allowing for a subtle and natural rejuvenation of the hands. It’s important to note that hand rejuvenation with Sculptra is a non-surgical procedure, making it a convenient option for those seeking natural-looking results without the need for invasive surgery. Dr. Naar will explain the entire process, including the number of treatment sessions required, the expected downtime, and the longevity of the results.
What is Sculptra Made Of?
Sculptra is not your typical dermal filler. It is a unique collagen stimulator that goes beyond simply filling lines and wrinkles. Made of poly-L-lactic acid, Sculptra works by stimulating the body’s natural collagen production, resulting in long-lasting, natural-looking results.
Other Hand Rejuvenation Treatment Options
Restylane is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler by Galderma that has been widely used for facial rejuvenation. Its unique properties make it an ideal choice for hand rejuvenation as well. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body that helps maintain hydration and volume in the skin. By injecting Restylane into the back of the hands, treatment can replenish lost volume, smooth out wrinkles, and improve the overall texture of the skin.
Fortunately, with advances in dermatological science, we now have effective solutions to address hand aging concerns with cosmeceutical products. Alastin is a revolutionary skincare line that has gained significant recognition for its ability to rejuvenate and restore the appearance of aging skin. Its innovative formulation contains patented TriHex Technology®, which helps to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin fibers, improving the overall texture and quality of the skin.

Personal Consultation with Dr. Naar
When it comes to hand rejuvenation, a personal consultation at Premier Vein Clinic is the first step towards achieving youthful and vibrant hands. Dr. David Naar, our esteemed vascular surgeon, understands the importance of assessing your unique needs and discussing your cosmetic concerns in detail.
During your consultation, Dr. Naar will carefully review your medical history and examine the condition of your hands, including the texture of your skin, the presence of wrinkles or volume loss, and any visible veins or age spots. This comprehensive evaluation enables him to determine the most suitable treatment approach for you.
Preparing for Hand Rejuvenation
- Medical History and Medications: Provide Dr. Naar with a comprehensive list of all medications, supplements, and vitamins you are currently taking. Some medications may need to be adjusted or temporarily discontinued prior to the procedure to minimize any potential risks or complications.
- Blood Thinners: If you are on blood thinners or other anticoagulant medications, it is crucial to follow Dr. Naar’s instructions regarding their discontinuation before the treatment. This will help reduce the risk of excessive bleeding or bruising during and after the injections.
- Nicotine Use: It is strongly recommended to refrain from smoking or using nicotine products in the weeks leading up to your hand rejuvenation treatment. Nicotine can impair blood flow and delay the healing process, compromising the overall outcome of the procedure.
