3 Treatments to Keep Your Hands Looking Their Best

Our hands often show the first signs of aging, revealing wrinkles, spots, and volume loss due to constant exposure and activity. While regular maintenance, like moisturizing and applying SPF, can mitigate some aging effects, more targeted treatments are often required to rejuvenate hands effectively and maintain a youthful appearance. Below, we dive deeper into three specialized treatments that can help reduce visible aging signs on your hands.

how to make hands look younger

Forever Young BBL™ Laser

The Forever Young BBL™ Laser treatment utilizes advanced Broad Band Light technology, not just as a standard laser treatment but as a skin rejuvenator at the cellular level. This method uniquely targets skin cells to increase their longevity and enhance their health, effectively slowing down the aging process at a biological level. The treatment reduces the appearance of age spots and fine lines by stimulating these cells to behave younger, enhancing the skin’s natural luminosity. It’s recommended to undergo a series of treatments for the most dramatic and lasting improvements, with maintenance sessions periodically.


Fillers aren’t just for the face! They can provide an instant solution to the loss of volume in hands, which often reveals underlying structures like tendons and veins more prominently as we age. By injecting hyaluronic acid fillers directly into the hands, immediate volume is added, smoothing out the skin and lessening the visibility of veins and wrinkles. The procedure itself is quick, with minimal downtime, and the results can last from six months to a year, depending on the type of fillers used and the individual patient. This treatment can often stimulate the body’s collagen production, improving skin quality over time.

HALO™ Fractional Resurfacing

HALO™ Fractional Resurfacing stands out for its hybrid approach, combining deep dermal rejuvenation with epidermal renewal. This dual action not only smooths the surface of the skin but also triggers the underlying collagen remodelling necessary for lasting skin improvements. By delivering ablative and non-ablative wavelengths in a single pass, the HALO laser uniquely customizes treatments based on the specific needs of the skin on your hands. This means it can accurately target discoloration, sun damage, and visible signs of aging with less downtime than traditional resurfacing lasers. Typically, patients see noticeable improvements in the texture and tone of their skin after one to two treatments.

Preventive Care Tips

Keeping your hands youthful goes beyond cosmetic treatments; it involves daily habits that protect and nourish your skin. Even after you’ve introduced a non-surgical treatment into your beauty regime, there are effective habits you can do to prevent premature aging of your hands:

  • Moisturize Regularly: Apply a hydrating moisturizer several times a day, especially after washing your hands. Look for products containing hyaluronic acid, ceramides, or shea butter for deep nourishment.
  • Sun Protection: Sun damage can significantly age your hands. Use a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher sunscreen on your hands daily, reapplying every two hours when exposed to sunlight for prolonged periods.
  • Wear Gloves: Wear gloves to protect your hands from harsh chemicals, cold weather, and manual labour. This can prevent environmental damage and physical wear that contribute to aging.
  • Hydration and Diet: Staying hydrated and maintaining a balanced diet rich in antioxidants can help your skin appear more vibrant and youthful. For instance, foods high in vitamins C and E can support skin health.
  • Gentle Cleansing: Wash your hands with gentle, non-drying soap to avoid stripping away natural oils essential for maintaining skin elasticity and hydration.

These simple steps can significantly extend the life of your skin cells and complement professional treatments, ensuring your hands remain soft, supple, and youthful for longer.
