Transcript for How to Take Years Off Your Aging Hands
All right time now for our series "Turn back time." We have a closer look at your hands. According to a study from the American society of plastic surgeons most people can determine a person's age just by looking at their hands. We're all looking at our hands now but now a new surgical treatment may be able to keep people guessing. ABC's Mara schiavocampo has more. Reporter: Gray, 100% not. Reporter: You covered up those pesky gray hairs. Aging is not just about wrinkles. Reporter: Battled wrinkles and sun damage and even watch your weight. All in an effort to hide your years. But at the end of the day it could be your hands that reveal your true age. No, no. Reporter: Just like Sutton foster's character trying to look half her age on the show "Younger." The hands give away your age more than anything else. It's very important to rejuvenate the hands so that they match the rest of your body. Reporter: This morning, doctors say there is a new cure for your rapidly maturing Mitts. It's a filler that is made of calcium for rejuvenation of the hands. Reporter: Recently radiesse claims to give you a hand in more ways than one. It camouflages the vein, tendons and adds volume but it also triggers your own body to make collagen as well. Reporter: Even younger women are getting on the hand wagon with soon-to-be brides getting their paws plumped to be picture perfect for their big day. It just is fuller. You can't see the veins as much and bones and wrinkles in your hands. Reporter: Doctors say it's a simple procedure taking just 15 minutes and even ends with a massage. Inject it directly into the surface of the hand. I repeat that until the hand is revolumized then I massage. Reporter: This handy procedure can cost a pretty penny. Prices for one treatment ranging from $800 to $1,000. But some say the results prove it is possible to turn back the hands of time. There's also beautiful. You can see the result right away and the result lasts over a year. Reporter: For "Good morning America," Mara schiavocampo, ABC news, New York. Completely now self-conscious about my hands. Back with us is Dr. Whitney Bowe. I was moisturizing. We just saw a procedure that can have a big impact by plumbing up the hand but tell us what's going on aging our hands. Besides losing volume, there are two main changes that occur in the hands as we age. So first the skin actually gets paper thin as a result of losing collagen. Not only do they look crepey they become very fragile, crepey like cigarette paper. Very easy to tear, to rip. To bruise. You know, as they become so fragile but the other thing that happens we develop brown marks on the hand. Most call those liver spots. That's a misnomer. They have nothing to do with the liver. Their true name is solar lentigos. They come out as a result of sun exposure. There are also uv rays that people don't think about, correct, when getting manicures. Many don't realize getting regular gel manicures actually speeds up the agesing process. So during a gel manicure, you know, you have to place your hand underneath that lamp in order to cure or set that Polish. But both uv lamps and L.E.D. Lamp, you know, those uv-free safe lamps, they've just been proven to emit uva rays that lead to skin cancer, aging. Get a safe gel mani use a broad spectrum before you put it underneath. This is my favorite or get fingerless gloves and upf 50. There's over the counter things you can use that I just used. Look for one with vitamin C. This is skinceuticals. Face or hands. You also want to look for products that contain retinol. This is glow by Dr. Brandt and lytera. Ask for retin-a or hydro -- All things you normally put on your face. Great to treat your hands like your face. I always say it's one cosmetic unit, your chest and hands. Have to treat them all the same. Great advice. Now I'm thinking all about that.
