Spots & Discoloration
Bulging veins & tendons
Aging is one of the most concerning issues in our society and affects everyone without exception.
Your age is shown primarily on your face and hand. The ageing process is a combination of external (environmental) and internal (innate or genetic) factors.
In contrast to the face, there is little or no awareness of hand ageing in Dubai and procedures for hand rejuvenation.
A tight soft tissue coat characterizes the young, attractive hand without wrinkles. Depending on the ethnic background, nail polish and jewellery can also underline the overall picture.
The ageing hand: The age-related loss of volume and/or tension in the muscles and subcutaneous fatty tissue, coupled with a loss of elasticity in the skin and the changes in volume and shape of the bones, make the soft tissue layer larger than its contents.

A Complete Solution For Ageing Hands
“Prof Dr Robert Hierner is a pioneer in the field of interdisciplinary and multi-professional treatment of aging in the hand area. Based on many years of research and clinical experience in the field of Hand Surgery, Prof. Hierner has developed the so-called “integrative therapy concept for the ageing hand” and successfully implemented it in his daily practice.
Age changes affect everyone and all the tissues in the body; overall, hand ageing is a combination of the following:
- Blood Vessels
- Nerves (→ Carpal tunnel syndrome)
- Tendons (→ Trigger Finger)
- Joints (→ Osteoarthritis)
- Bones (→ Osteporosis)
All of the above symptoms can be treated to a great extent under our Hand Rejuvenation in Dubai therapy programme by our specialist, Prof Dr Robert Hierner.

There are major age-related changes at the skin and nail level:
- Pigment disorders: Because of increased melanocytic activity, so-called “age spots” appear at the dorsum of the hand
- Wrinkles: Collagen loss causes loss of thickness of dermis and wrinkles to appear. When you are younger, protein-based fibres are more readily available. It is, however, possible to lose collagen too soon
- Loss of contour: Because of loss of thickness of dermis and loss of subcutaneous fat tissue, there is loss of contour of the hand and
- Increasing visibility of dorsal veins and tendons
- Nail disorders: discolouration and thickening of the nail plate are the most common features
“Integrative Therapy Concept for the ageing hand” – Skin & Nail
The best therapy for age-related wrinkles is to avoid them (excessive exposure to the sun, smoking, alcohol) and delay them (cosmetic treatment).
From the age of 30, the moisture content of the skin decreases. Small superficial wrinkles appear. Professional cosmetic treatments aim to replace the loss of moisture in the skin (“rehydration”). A consistently carried out moisture therapy of the skin with suitable products allows the early age changes – superficial wrinkling – of the skin to become visible later. Deeper wrinkles cannot be removed with cosmetic treatments.
For the treatment of existing age-related changes in the hand area, depending on the cause(s), several therapy methods are combined with each other and sometimes used in a way that builds on each other. A distinction is made between-
- Conservative and minimally invasive treatment of age changes in the skin area
- Surgical therapy of age changes in the skin area
It is important to understand that the conservative, minimally invasive, and surgical treatment options are not competing for procedures but rather complementary forms of treatment.
The key to a successful treatment is a profound analysis of the different age changes of the skin at the hand and wrist:
Combination of :
Conservative & minimally invasive therapy of age changes in the skin area
With the help of numerous conservative and minimally invasive treatment methods, a significant reduction in age-related skin changes in the hand area can be achieved without surgery. The different methods have different main treatment goals.
The various techniques can be used alone or in combination with other conservative, minimally invasive, and surgical treatment methods.
Conservative and minimally invasive methods include;

Surgical therapy of age changes in the skin area
With the help of lifting operations, age-related changes in the hand area that can no longer be corrected with conservative and/or minimally invasive treatment methods can be reliably treated.
The various techniques can be used individually or in combination, individually adapted to the needs of the patient. It is also possible to combine these interventions with all other non-surgical (conservative and minimally invasive) wrinkle therapy options.
