Many women focus on combatting the signs of aging in their faces, but more women are now realizing that there are few areas of the body that give away our age than our hands! As part of the normal aging process, the veins in our hands can become very visible and cause embarrassment. The skin on our hands is naturally very thin, so it is all too easy for our veins to appear prominent over time. The hands are a very exposed part of our bodies, so it’s difficult to cover up unsightly hand veins. Thankfully, the board-certified dermatologists at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology are experts in treating unwanted hand veins in San Diego using cutting-edge procedures like sclerotherapy and laser treatments.
Sclerotherapy for Hand Veins
Spider and varicose veins in the hands can be treated with the innovative non-invasive Sclerotherapy treatment. Sclerotherapy involves injecting a medication called a sclerosing agent into the hands in order to reduce the appearance of unwanted veins. The sclerosing agent is injected in the veins, which causes them to dissolve, become absorbed into the body, and disappear. Varicose and spider veins are not necessary and can cause the hands to appear older. Using Sclerotherapy, our highly trained doctors in San Diego are able to target the root of the problem and remove unsightly veins at the source. Sclerotherapy is a non-invasive procedure that produces incredible results and our team of dermatology experts are specialists in using Sclerotherapy to reduce the appearance of unattractive hand veins.
Laser Treatments for Hand Veins
In most cases, Sclerotherapy treatments are sufficient in treating hand veins, however, our doctors are also highly experienced in using state-of-the-art laser treatments to diminish hand veins. At Cosmetic Laser Dermatology, we have multiple lasers to ensure that we provide each patient with optimal results. During the initial consultation, our doctors will assess each patient based on their individual needs to determine which treatment option is right for them.
Additionally, other cosmetic treatments, such as dermal fillers for volume loss or lasers to eliminate brown spots, can be performed at the same time for complete hand rejuvenation!

Hand Vein Frequently Asked Questions
When you are looking for vein treatments, you are likely to have a lot of questions about your options. Browse the answers to some common questions below or call our office today to get all of your hand vein questions answered!
Q: What are spider veins?
A: Spider veins are branch-like in appearance and might look blue, purple or red depending on the person. When blood in our veins is not flowing properly, our blood can back up and cause another vein segment to be formed. Spider veins are not necessary to the body and their removal can actually improve circulation.
Q: Why are the veins in my hands so noticeable?
A: The skin on our hands is naturally thin and veins in our hands become increasingly noticeable with age. Prominent hand veins can cause us to look older than we actually are and be a source of discomfort and embarrassment.
Q: Is Sclerotherapy painful?
A: Sclerotherapy uses a very small needle in order to inject the sclerosing agent into the vein and typically does not cause much pain. Patients may feel a slight burning feeling around the injection site, but patients are given a local anesthetic which reduces the pain.
Q: How many Sclerotherapy treatments will I need?
A: The vast majority of patients will only need one treatment, however, this depends on the number, size, and depth of the veins. For optimal results, some patients may require up to 2 treatments.
