What remedies or therapies make hands look younger?

There are several ways to make your hands look younger. Laser treatments can diminish the appearance of brown spots, which are caused by sun exposure. For enlarged veins (a common condition of aging, caused by thinning skin), sclerotherapy is an option. Sclerotherapy uses injections to collapse veins so they are absorbed into the body. For loss of fat in the hands (another common side effect of aging, known as hand lipoatrophy), fillers of either your own fat or calcium hydroxyapatite are effective. Fillers, which are injectables, are a temporary treatment and usually last about 12 months.

See a dermatologist for advice on how to make your hands look younger.
