Are Your Hands Making You Look Old?

You may have created your own daily skin regimen to ensure a more youthful appearance. You may use products to deep-cleanse your face, apply moisturizing masques and night creams and even eye gels in order to provide the best care. But what about your hands? You may feel their look adds years to your age, since blue and bulging veins have begun to appear of the back of your hands.

How Do My Hands Age?
As you age, you naturally lose skin elasticity and subcutaneous fatty tissue in the backs of your hands, and, thus, you also lose water content in your hand tissue. The ‘thinning out’ of your previously pink and youthful hands has revealed the highway of veins beneath the surface. You might also have a genetic pre-disposition to veiny hands, which can make matters even more prominent.

Do you see the start of a raised map of bumpy veins? No matter how pronounced your hand veins, you can get smooth, plump, line-free hands and help turn back the clock to your youth.

Our vein doctors at the Vein Institute of NJ can reduce the size of those hand veins with our sclerotherapy treatment. It’s a simple, painless procedure that’s safe when conducted by an experienced professional, like those found at our vein centers.

Is Sclerotherapy Safe?
Yes. Sclerotherapy simply involves a reduction of the condition that makes those blue veins bulge and show so prominently. And reducing these veins is absolutely safe. With so many veins in the hand, our vein specialist can maintain proper blood flow throughout your hand and arm, so there’s no need to worry about loss of circulation from this procedure.
