The Appearance Of Your Hands Can Reveal Your Age, Study Finds
(press release from ASPS)
Want to know a person's real age? Just look at their hands, reports a study
in the June issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the official medical
journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). According to the
study, most people can accurately tell a person's age by viewing only their
"A primary motivation to have plastic surgery is to look and feel better, often
by seeking a younger looking appearance. However, looking younger after your
facelift or eyelid surgery can conflict with aged hands that simply do not match
the face," said Roxanne Guy, MD, ASPS president-elect. "After the face, hands
are the second most visible, tell-tale sign of one's age. If your goal is to
look more youthful or you are bothered by the appearance of your hands, you may
seriously want to consider hand rejuvenation."
In the study, people examined unaltered photographs of female hands and were
asked to estimate the women's ages, i.e., younger than 20 years, 20 to 30 years,
30 to 40 years, etc. In the majority of cases, participants were able to
accurately estimate the age of each woman in the unaltered photographs.
Participants were also asked to compare digitally altered photographs of female
hands - blemishes and hand veins were removed or jewelry and nail polish were
added - to unaltered photographs to assess which hands looked younger. The
majority of participants felt that the altered photos of women's hands appeared
younger. However, alterations to photos of very elderly hands - characterized by
thin skin, age spots, wrinkles, deformity, veins and prominent joints - did not
change the participants' ability to distinguish the person's age.
Overall, the physical characteristic which most commonly gave away age was
prominent hand veins.
In altered images where hand veins were removed, participants significantly felt
hands looked younger. Fullness and a lack of wrinkles and veins characterized
the youngest looking hands. Nail polish and jewelry were also found to make
hands appear younger looking.
"The good news is, although your hands may reveal more about your age than you
desire, there are remedies out there," said Dr. Guy. "A good medical skincare
regimen that focuses on the hands can be highly effective in maintaining skin
thickness and fullness. Non-surgical procedures like laser treatments and
chemical peels can reduce age spots. Fat injections can be used to plump up
hands and reduce the visibility of veins and laser ablation of unwanted hand
veins can reduce veins."
