Are You Concerned About the Prominence of Your Hand Veins?

While dilated hand veins are usually healthy, some find them concerning, or just plain ugly. In most cases, the issue is cosmetic, but in rare cases, bulging hand veins may signify an underlying medical condition. Premier Vein & Body by Schwartz can help you determine your hand vein health and if treatment is something to pursue.

What Causes Hand Veins?

Prominent hand veins are common and have a variety of causes. The source of most vein prominence is age. As we clock the years, our skin thins and loses elasticity, as well as soft tissue volume. Low body fat can also make veins more noticeable. Exercise elevates blood pressure, pushing the veins to the surface. Some are genetically disposed to prominent veins.

What Treatments are Available for Hand Veins?

Dr. Craig Schwartz treats hand veins in various ways, depending on your goals.

Sclerotherapy is the gold standard in the treatment of spider veins and is one of the easiest treatments, involving a sclerosing agent injected into the veins to develop scarring, which closes the veins and reroutes blood to deeper vessels.

Laser Vein Treatment is often used in conjunction with one of the other treatments to remove the finest of spider veins that are too tiny for sclerotherapy.

Ambulatory Phlebectomy is useful for the removal of larger, bulging veins.  Using a tiny incision, a specialized instrument hooks the problematic veins, removing them entirely with the incision healing completely, not even requiring stitches!

Fillers have become a very popular alternative to rejuvenate hands that are showing their age with bulging veins and volume loss.  Using either synthetic dermal fillers for shorter-term results or our Forever Filler using your own body fat for a long-term solution, Dr. Schwartz is able to reverse the signs of aging by increasing volume and decreasing the noticeable signs of aging, including bulging veins.
