Hand Vein Treatment
What Are Hand Veins?
Bulging veins on the hands can come about as you age and after years of sun exposure. These two factors cause the skin to lose elasticity and its youthful appearance. Few people know that these upper layers of veins are not an essential part of the circulatory system. Veins further below the surface are actually responsible for carrying blood throughout your body. If you find varicose veins on your hands to be unattractive, there is a solution.
Sclerotherapy for Hand Veins
Here at the VIP Vein Center we offer a safe and effective cosmetic treatment for undesirable hand veins. The most popular treatment for hand veins is sclerotherapy. This outpatient procedure takes about 30 minutes and involves the injection of a special solution into the problem veins. As the solution does its work, the veins shrink in size. These veins are taken in by the body and the blood transported through them goes into healthier veins.
The VIP Vein Center offers sclerotherapy without the need for anesthesia for a virtually painless treatment option conducted in the doctor’s office. One application of the solution may be effective at reducing the appearance of varicose veins in some patients, however, other may need additional applications.
