Treatment for Hand Veins
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.
