Prominent veins in the hands, is an aesthetic problem, resulting from magnetics or hard physical work in young women. It is a depletion of subcutaneous adipose tissue, which causes veins and tendons to protrude across the skin. This phenomenon causes the appearance of old age in older and younger women. Today, when aesthetic treatments are so common and successful, women can hide their true age with aesthetic treatments on the face, but the hands look older and betray their true age.
why is it happening?
In old age, the subcutaneous tissue loses its thickness, due to the reduction of hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin.
These three important components are found in tissues and their quantity decreases with age.
Skin aging causes the veins to protrude above the skin surface.
Are there treatment options?
For prominent veins in the hands, there are three types of treatments that may improve the appearance of the hands:
Injections of filler into the subcutaneous tissue in the back of the palm.
Injections of shaving material into the prominent veins.
Removal of prominent veins by miniature surgery.
In the veins of the hands, which are slightly protruding on the surface of the skin, filling injections (such as injections to fill in wrinkles on the face) can be treated to restore the young appearance to the hands.
It should be noted that repeat treatments are needed every 8-6 months because the injected substances are absorbed over time.
In the veins in the more prominent hands, the filling injections are not enough to improve the appearance of the hands.
There is a simple technique identical to the treatment of protruding veins in the legs – injecting a scavenger into the protruding veins.
The scavenging substance causes the veins to clog and over time the vein degenerates, is absorbed and disappears.
Unlike the legs, the hands have no tendency to pigmentation (a brown tint that appears due to absorption of blood inside the blocked vein), the treatment is done in a clinic and no anesthesia is needed.
The treatment requires an elastic bandage of the patient’s hand two days after the injection of the shaving substance.
For significantly prominent veins in the hands, tiny surgery is required that includes only local anesthesia.
Through two small incisions (2 millimeters) the vein is easily removed.
After surgery, there is a slight swelling and tiny hemorrhages, which are absorbed and disappear after a few days.
