When we think of signs of ageing, we often think about the face becoming wrinkled and sagging, but the face isn’t the only place that signs of ageing can show. Wrinkled skin on the hands is a common complaint among both men and women as they get older.
The skin on the hands and fingers is known as glabrous, which means it is hairless and smooth. This can make wrinkles and other signs of ageing on the hands more obvious and prominent. Wrinkled skin on the hands develops over time because of a loss of collagen, which reduces the elasticity in the skin. This causes the skin on the hands to sag and loses firmness. On top of this, the hands can lose fullness in tissue and muscle with age, which results in wrinkled skin on hands.
