Hand Veins Treatment Sclerotherapy Sheman Oaks Los Angeles
Prominent veins can make your hands look substantially older. Over the years, the skin loses some of its elasticity and volume. This can result in a more noticeable appearance of lumpy, unattractive veins at the skin’s surface. Areas that receive a lot of sun exposure, such as the hands, tend to show these signs of damage even more quickly.

These bulging veins that we can see near the surface of the skin are not even necessary to the circulatory system. There are veins deeper within the hand that sufficiently transport blood to and from the area. Therefore, if surface hand veins are cosmetically bothersome, it is quite safe to treat them and rid the hands of their presence.

Sclerotherapy Treatment for Hand Veins

One of the most effective forms of treatment for hand veins is sclerotherapy. This medical procedure involves the injection of a sclerosant solution into the prominent veins, which causes irritation and their eventual collapse. The treated veins are ultimately absorbed into the body and the blood is redirected naturally to flow through other, healthier veins.

Performed in your doctor’s office, sclerotherapy procedures typically take less than 30 minutes. Some patients will only need one session of sclerotherapy to completely resolve their hand veins, while others may require multiple sessions. Anesthesia is not necessary and most patients report experiencing little to no pain, other than perhaps just a mild burning sensation. After the skin is cleaned with an antiseptic solution, the sclerosant is injected into the affected veins with a very fine needle. The number of injections per session varies based on the number and length of the damaged veins.

After sclerotherapy, most patients can return to normal activities the same day. Compression bandages may need to be worn for several days after the procedure.

Chest Veins

Certain people, especially those with fair skin, have prominent blue veins visible beneath the skin of the chest or breasts. As we age, our skin tissue loses fat and volume. This can cause the veins near the surface of the skin to become more obvious. In addition, breast augmentation and nursing can increase the prominence of these veins. While most cases of noticeable chest veins are completely harmless, it can be cosmetically unattractive to some.

Many patients are bothered by the appearance of prominent veins on areas such as the chest or breasts, and seek to keep them covered up with high-necked clothing. However, treatment to diminish chest veins and restore a clear appearance is safe, fast and successful.
