Last week, The VeinCare Centre had a call from a lady in Bristol who was concerned about varicose veins on her hands. She wanted to know what caused them and what could be done.
True varicose veins on the hands are very rare. They may be caused by a DVT of the arm or by other rare medical conditions but usually the people I see who have prominent hand veins have developed them simply as a result of getting older. You see, as we age, the backs of our hands lose collagen, the skin become thinner and it may also develop age spots or liver spots. Our hands can look much older than the rest of our body, with a bony appearance, big bulging veins and prominent tendons. Fortunately this is something that can be successfully treated. I use a combination of treatments that I call “Hand Rejuvenation”. It’s a combination of sclerotherapy, collagen stimulation and age spot elimination. I have developed a method of hand vein injections that I call “Gentle Sclerotherapy”. It does not close off the veins completely — after all we need normal veins — no it shrinks the veins and makes them return to a more normal size. Unlike other forms of sclerotherapy, compressions gloves are not needed. At the same time, I use collagen stimulator injections under the skin to restore volume to the back of the hand and cryotherapy — similar to wart treatment- to eliminate age spots. The result is more youthful looking hands.
