You don’t have to be a hand model to want more attractive hands. Of all of the parts of your body, your hands are among the most exposed. Not only do others see your hands on a daily basis, but they’ve likely been shown to the sun quite often over the years. Coupled with the natural aging process of volume loss and diminishing skin elasticity, this frequent sun exposure can accelerate the appearance of aging hands even more.
Are your hands making you look older than you really are? The hands can suddenly reveal a skeleton appearance with thin, creped skin and raised tendons and prominent blood vessels. Just like signs of aging in the face, these unwanted changes in the hands can be blamed on fat volume loss and declining collagen production in the skin. The natural atrophy of the intrinsic muscles of the hand due to aging contribute to making the tendons, veins and metacarpal bones unsightly and overly prominent. Fortunately, just like your face, a qualified plastic surgeon can help.

What you may not realize, however, is that there are multiple ways to regain attractive and desirable lips – and not all of them require surgery.
