hand veins

Hand veins can be prominent in thin women, athletes and the elderly, and can make hands look older than they are. This is a result of:

  • Weakening of the skin’s elasticity and smoothness giving skin a ‘parchment paper’ like look
  • General drying of the hand tissues and skin
  • Reduction of subcutaneous fat located in the back of your hands making them look thinner, older, and more transparent

Solutions for hand veins include sclerotherapy, laser vein treatments or phlebectomy is (a minimally-invasive surgical procedure that removes surface varicose veins).

Alternatively, there are cosmetic solutions available. Dermal fillers can be used to volumize the space between the veins, or laser skin tightening can make protruding veins less obvious.
