Utilizing the latest technology, California Vein Specialists is committed to providing comprehensive minimally invasive vein treatments for the full spectrum of venous disorders from painful varicose veins to cosmetic spider veins. Sclerotherapy, the gold standard of treatments, involves injecting veins with a safe solution that causes the body to absorb the vein without harming the rest of your body.
The success of the treatments is dependent on many factors, including the solution used, the technique of the physician, the general health of the patient, and the anatomy of the particular vein. Tiny needles are used, and complications are extremely unusual.
The treatment involves no significant limitations or downtime, and the patient may go immediately back to work following their appointment.
The first step is to get rid of these large, bulging hand veins. These veins are normal, and more of a cosmetic problem than a disease process like varicose veins. Fortunately, the hand has plenty of venous return, and does very well when the veins are removed. The hand veins respond very well to sclerotherapy, typically with about two sessions.
Hyaluronic Acid Filler
The next step in hand rejuvenation is volume replacement. The loss of fat in the hand makes the bones and tendons stick out and much more obvious, just like the veins. A very simple way of returning volume is to inject HA Filler,a common filler. HA Filler is highly malleable and when injected over the top of the hand it erases the bony look of the tendons and bones. The HA Filler injection is almost pain free because it is mixed with lidocaine, a local anesthetic. Once injected the HA Filler is massaged into a smooth natural appearing surface that replaces the fat that has been lost. HA Filler may last up to two years. Your hands will look and feel completely natural.
