As we age, the skin on our hands becomes thinner, allowing veins to become more prominent and noticeable. In addition, the veins themselves sometimes become bigger and darker. Prominent hand veins, in addition to wrinkles and dark spots, are one of the main tells of getting older. Recently, many people have discovered that although they may take pains to keep their face looking young, other areas of the body may betray their true age, such as the hands, chest, even earlobes. Luckily, there are hand vein reduction methods that are safe, effective, and trusted. The expert, board-certified dermatologists at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology have years of experience reducing and eliminating unwanted hand veins, and they do it in the safest and most advanced way.

Hand Vein Reduction

One of the best methods for reducing hand veins is sclerotherapy. Sclerotherapy is a spider vein elimination treatment in San Diego option that has been around for decades, only improving through advances in research and technology. Sclerotherapy consists of simple injections of a special solution called a sclerosing agent, which dissolves veins from the inside. It is widely used for treating hand veins, and is proven safe and effective.

Another method for reducing hand veins is laser therapy. Cosmetic lasers can target and destroy unwanted veins without damaging surrounding tissue. These treatments may require multiple sessions, but they are ultimately very effective. Lasers can also be used to help treat brown spots for a more comprehensive anti-aging treatment for your hands.

The best hand vein reduction method to use is best decided through an in-person consultation with a skilled, board-certified dermatologist such as those at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego. Your dermatologist can work together with you to assess your condition and come up with a customized treatment plan that will address your concerns in the best manner.
