Unlike varicose and spider veins in the legs that may have health implications, hand veins are completely safe and a factor of aging and exercise. But if they make you uncomfortable, Center for Vein Wellness can recommend safe treatments to get rid of unwanted prominent veins on your hands and arms.
Many cosmetic improvements are usually directed at the face. But your hands are also exposed to scrutiny, and can tell a lot about your age. With time, your hands lose plumpness and the skin at the back gets thinner, causing them to look more skeletal with tendons, ropey veins, and joint protrusions. Moreover, the color of your skin begins to change due to age spots, causing the dark, deoxygenated blood in your veins to give your hands a bruised and battered look.
But aging is not the only cause of hand veins. Many women who are enrolled in different exercise and fitness programs in an effort to stay in good shape also suffer from highly visible hand veins partly due to the diminished fat content under the skin. Resistance training also causes arm muscles to expand and get larger, pushing the veins outwards to the skin surface.
Any treatment used for leg/feet vein removal can also be safely used on your hand or arm veins, including Sclerotherapy, VeinGogh and Phlebectomy. All treatment options are safe and effective. However, to determine the right treatment option to fit your needs, discuss it with your Los Angeles vein specialist.
If you are thinking about getting your hand veins removed or resolved, the first step is to find a trustworthy vein specialist, such as Dr. Haimesh Shah, who will perform the necessary physical assessment and create a suitable, personalized treatment plan.
