While most of us focus on the face when it comes to a more youthful appearance, the hands are often the first place to show the telltale signs of aging. Thinning skin, protruding hand veins and the appearance of age spots all contribute to this problem. Some patients are now turning to cosmetic procedures to turn back the clock on the hands, for a younger appearance overall.
Hand veins, unlike bulging veins that appear on the lower legs, are not typically considered to be varicose veins. Instead, thinning and loss of elasticity in the skin contribute to the appearance of protruding veins. Although the veins are not diseased, they can be treated to minimize the bulging appearance for a smoother appearance to the back of the hands. Treatments for this purpose are similar to those used to treat spider and varicose veins in the lower extremities.
At Beach Cities Vein and Laser Center, we offer a variety of treatments for hand veins and other signs of aging that tend to plague the hands. In some cases, the best option may be a combination of procedures that minimize the appearance of protruding veins, while eliminating age spots and other signs of damage to the skin. To find out how you can enjoy younger, more beautiful hands, contact our staff today.
