Most of us understand the importance of looking after the skin on our face, neck, and décolletage to maintain a youthful appearance. What many of us sometimes forget, however, is that the skin on our hands can be as telltale a sign of our actual age as the lines around our eyes. As we get older, we naturally lose fat, which can make the veins in our hands stand out more prominently, advertising our true age. At Vein Specialists of Pittsburgh, not only do we provide treatment for painful veins and other issues, we are proud to offer vein removal on hands to help you feel more confident each and every day.
Aging is a natural process, but just because it’s natural doesn’t mean we have to surrender to it. Just as you take care of your face and neck, so you can appear youthful and radiant, it’s important to take the necessary steps to ensure your hands look young and beautiful, too. And because they age faster than any other part of the body, the veins can bulge or protrude quicker than they do elsewhere. Removing these unsightly veins can take years off your hands, and therefore, the rest of your appearance as well.
Several different methods may be used to remove the veins in your hands. The most common and effective treatment for unsightly veins on the hands is sclerotherapy. Sclerotherapy is a simple, safe, and minimally invasive procedures that causes the collapse of prominent veins. It involves the injection of specific chemicals into the veins being treated, which causes irritation that eventually leads to collapse and absorption by the body. When this happens, the blood is diverted through other healthier veins in the same area.
Sclerotherapy sessions are out-patient and generally take about a half hour or so. The most common side effects following your procedure are some temporary bruising, pigmentation, and/or swelling. The number of required treatment sessions will be determined on an individual basis, depending on your body and the number of veins requiring treatment. Most patients are allowed to return to work and other normal activities immediately following their procedure, though compression gloves or wraps may be recommended. Results are immediately noticeable, with continued improvement typically seen over the course of 4-6 weeks.
If you have ever looked down at your hands and thought they looked like they belong to someone much older, then vein removal on your hands may be the first step to achieving a more youthful overall look. It is easy to forget that it’s not only our face and neck that can telegraph our true age. Your hands spend as much time out in the elements as your face does, often without the protection of sunscreen or the benefits of reparative treatment. When it comes time to rejuvenate your appearance and face the day with a more youthful and radiant look, don’t forget your hands. Trust the certified doctor at Vein Specialists of Pittsburgh in Oakmont, PA to help your hands look their best.
