bulging veins in hands

Protruding Veins and Hand Rejuvenation

Protruding veins in hands can benefit from hand rejuvenation. When it comes to varicose veins and spider veins, the face and legs get most of the attention. That’s understandable spider veins on the face are very noticeable in the bathroom mirror, and varicose veins in the legs can be painful and unsightly. One area that does not get as much attention is your hands.

As we age, the subcutaneous fat in our hands shrinks and diminishes, which reveals the underlying anatomical structures, including protruding veins. Sometimes artificial fillers are injected to plump the skin and reduce the appearance of bulging veins, however the effectiveness of these treatments can vary and they may need to be done with increasing frequency to notice acceptable results.

Sclerotherapy for Hand Rejuvenation

A more effective treatment for many patients who wish to improve the look and health of their hands is sclerotherapy. A solution is injected into individual veins that causes them to close up and be safely absorbed into the body. Other than a minor injection, this treatment is non-invasive and in almost all cases causes no disruption or requires no downtime from your normal daily activities.

The results can be dramatic: hands that previously looked old with prominent and bulging veins are restored to a more youthful, healthier, more attractive look. Hand veins tend not to return in the same way that spider veins in the legs can, so there is an increased likelihood that hand rejuvenation treatment could last long.
