Top 3 Places Women First Show Signs Of Aging

By Carolynn Grimes 

Most all of us have heard the saying, ‘you can tell a woman’s age by looking at her eyes, neck, and hands.’ It’s no wonder, all these areas have thinner skin and are subject to sun exposure on a regular basis. But Dr. Raminder Saluja, a specialist in aesthetic dermatology tells us, there a treatment for that.

The Eyes: 

Often called the windows to the soul, our eyes are the first thing people notice. Dr. Saluja is not only trained in cosmetic dermatology, but she’s also a board-certified ophthalmologist. She knows eyes and knows what a difference it can make to treat the fine wrinkles or crow’s feet that develop as we mature.

She uses Botox to treat the crow's feet that develop at the outer corners, and the 11’s that pop up between the eyes. Botox works to paralyze the muscles and subsequently diminish fine lines and crow’s feet.  

Rings Around the Neck: 

The skin on your neck seems to age overnight, because the skin on your neck is much thinner than the face. Saluja says using lasers and radio frequency devices for the neck is the best place to start for lines and laxity. “Some of the radio frequency treatments have zero downtime so you can choose what type of downtime that you want,” says Saluja.

Aging Hands: 

“When you're looking at the hands, you want to clean up all the extra pigmentation. An IPL is wonderful for that,” explains Saluja. You can also put volume back into the hands with dermal fillers. As we age, the veins and tendons start looking more pronounced as we lose fat from the top or the dorsum of our hands. “There are all sorts of dermal fillers that can be utilized to give that youthfulness back to the hands.”
