hands-reveal-true-age.jpgAccording to a study in the June issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery®, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) revealed that most people could accurately tell a person's age by viewing only their hands. After face-lift or eyelid surgery the face may regain its youthful look, but the aged hands simply do not match the face, said Roxanne Guy, MD, ASPS president.

When people were asked to look at the altered images where hand veins were removed, participants felt hands looked younger. Use of nail polish and jewelry made hands look younger. To plump up hands fat injections are given to lower visibility of veins and laser ablation of unwanted hand veins can reduce veins.
