Causes of visible hand veins
Venous conditions can happen anywhere on our bodies, although some areas are far more prone than others, including the hands. There are several main reasons that make our hands particularly vulnerable to venous conditions, firstly, because they are an extremity. Our hands are also vulnerable since we use our hands for everything and the veins are very close to the surface, and as a result the veins in our hands are always hard at work. The third reason that makes our hands vulnerable to develop conditions with veins is that they consistently must pump blood upward, straining them over time. In a nutshell, though, the main cause of visible hand veins is simply aging and thinning skin.
