Today I met Rebbecca just a few weeks after I started treating her hand veins. Rebecca is a lovely lady who in nearly every respect looks younger than her age, except for her hands. When we first met, her hands were boney and she had large veins that made her hands look much older than the rest of her. Now, the improvement has been dramatic and her hands look 20 years younger. I treated Rebbecca with a combination of Foam Sclerotherapy and collagen stimulation and I am pleased to say Rebecca has new hands for Christmas.
“I haven’t been looking after my hands for a while now and, then, I moved into a property in Dorchester which needed a lot of work- painting, rubbing down, digging and all sorts of work. I never thought about putting gloves on and so my hands weren’t as nice as they used to be.
A couple of years ago a really good friend came to visit and during her stay she took photographs. When she went back home and had the photographs developed, she rang me to ask if I was well. She told me that she had seen my hands in the photographs and they looked like the hands of someone who had a terminal illness. I found it hard to reassure her I was well and that I wasn’t hiding something from her. Anyway, she sent me the photographs and when I saw my hands I was horrified. They looked like talons, like the hands of an 80 year old.
From that time on, I was really self-conscious about my hands and I tried to hide them, but it’s really difficult, because your hands are always on show! I never knew anything could be done and I thought that I was stuck with them like this.
Then, I heard from someone who had had their hand veins treated by Dr Gajraj and she was very pleased. When I had them treated, it was painless and really easy. Now I can’t believe the difference. It’s amazing and its taken 20 years off my hands. I am more than happy to let Dr Gajaj show my photographs and tell my story and I hope it helps other people.”
I treated Rebbecca by Foam Sclerotherapy. This is an injection of a medical solution (called a sclerosant) into the enlarged hand veins which causes them to shrink. The Foam Sclerosant doesn’t hurt and it acts by removing the lining of the vein which then reacts over the next few weeks by getting much smaller. Rebbecca was asked to wear medical compression gloves for a week. As well as the sclerotherapy, I injected the area around the veins with a medical collagen stimulator called Radiesse®. This works by increasing the volume of collagen and elastin in the hand, restoring a younger appearance. All of this was done will very little discomfort and no interruption to Rebecca’s busy routine.
In the New Year, I plan to treat the brown age spots on Rebbecca’s hands with cryotherapy. With Rebbecca’s permission, I hope to update you on her progress in the next few months.
