Hand veins is a medical condition that causes bulging and protruding veins in the hands. They look and act very similar to varicose veins that you would find in the leg. While everyone has veins in their hands for proper blood circulation, nobody wants to see these veins bulging their skin. While most of the primary causes of hand veins are unpreventable, the condition is easy to treat and remove.
The primary cause of bulging hand veins is age. Your skin loses its elasticity and becomes thinner as you age. The thinning of skin makes the veins much more visible than they were, and the loss of elasticity makes the hand veins appear.
Exercise is another common cause of hand veins. It may not make sense, but attempting to improve your health has the potential to ruin the appearance of your hands. The physical activity experience during exercise causes your blood pressure to rise. This elevated blood pressure causes your veins to be pushed closer to the skin. The bulging hand veins should go away once your blood pressure returns to normal, but exercising on a regular basis will make the hand veins permanent.
The final cause of hand veins is extremely hot weather. High temperatures tend to wreak havoc on everyone’s veins. Even a young and healthy person will see their veins enlarge. The high temperatures make it harder for vein valves to work properly, which ultimately makes the veins enlarge.
Hand veins may be a natural part of aging, but that does not mean you have to live with them for the rest of your life. The appearance of your hand veins is only going to get worse over time, so you should make an appointment to fix the problem now. Treating hand veins is an extremely easy process, so you have absolutely nothing to worry about.
Since hand veins are a cosmetic condition, it may be treated using sclerotherapy. This is a minimally invasive procedure that involves injecting your veins with a solution. It may take a few weeks, but sclerotherapy could eliminate your hand veins.
Sclerotherapy has become the primary treatment for spider and varicose veins because it is so effective at removing the sight of bulging veins in the body. Since sclerotherapy only involves injecting a solution into the veins, you may be able to immediately return to your normal activities following the procedure.
