In brief: Just

Just like any part of the skin, with age skin tends to become wrinkly as it thins out its collagen layer. Extensive sun damage can accelerate this process particularly on the sun exposed areas such as face, neck, hands including finger dryness whether from sun or washing.
However there are several rejuvenation procedures which can help to remove the signs of sun-damage. Consult an experienced dermatologist to discuss the options.

In brief: Sun damage

Sun damage can affect any skin surface visible to the sun.
Wrinkling occurs due to damage of the collagen and elastin fibers that result in wrinkling and brown spots. Using lasers both light based and fractionated can help improve this. Fillers can make the hands appear fuller again.

In brief: All skin

Sun damages whichever part of skin is exposed to, decreases flexibility of the connective tissue.
