Hand Vein Treatment in Atlanta, GA

Vein & Skin Laser Center performs hand vein treatments for the residents of Atlanta, Sandy Springs and the surrounding communities in Georgia.

You’ve heard the saying “you can always tell a woman’s true age, not by looking at her face, but at her hands.” Removing unsightly, bulging hand veins and age spots benefits those wishing to regain that soft, youthful appearance. It restores confidence in women who have developed unattractive veins and spots on their hands and have become self-conscious. As aging occurs, sun damage and loss of collagen combine to cause veins and age spots to stand out. You can have youthful looking hands again! Hand veins can be closed, and hyperpigmentation (age spots) can be erased with Photorejuvenation. A plump youthful look can be restored for your hands with Radiesse® injections.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

What causes unsightly hand veins?

In most cases, unsightly hand veins are healthy and not diseased. The most typical cause of unwanted hand veins is the thinning of skin and subcutaneous tissue that comes with age. Without that youthful cushioning, the veins begin to appear more obvious and start to bulge.

What is one of the treatments for hand veins?

Sclerotherapy

Can I get that “youthful cushioning” back?

Yes, you can! A plump, or cushioned, youthful look can be restored with a simple injection of Radiesse®. Radiesse® is a dermal filler that is combined with a local anesthetic. The procedure has minimal to no discomfort, and the results are immediate.

Is this a permanent solution?

No, this is not a permanent solution, but the plumping results of Radiesse® will last for at least a year.

Is it safe to close off some of the veins in my hand?

Yes, the procedure is safe. There are many blood vessels in the deeper layers of the hand that provide adequate blood flow, while the surface ones do not affect the main blood source. The bulging veins are not required for normal circulation because they are superficial.

Does insurance cover the cost of the procedure?

Because this is considered a cosmetic procedure, it is not normally covered by insurance companies.

What are the side effects and/or risks of treating my hand veins?

Pain associated with this procedure is minimal, if there is any at all. There might be slight swelling, bruising or redness that is usually resolved quickly.

How long does the hand vein treatment last?

The procedure could be permanent due to the fact that hand veins do not usually redevelop like varicose veins in the leg.

How can I get rid of these Age Spots?

Hyperpigmentation (age spots) of the hands can be eliminated through CO2 Resurfacing. This technology is a treatment breakthrough that can correct a variety of benign skin conditions, such as birthmarks, age spots, and other blemishes.

How do I decide which treatment I need for my hands: vein removal, dermal filler or photorejuvenation?

Speaking with the specialists at Vein & Skin Laser Center will allow Dr. Fern to evaluate your hands. During this complimentary consultation, a treatment plan will be developed so that you and the doctor can choose the procedure that is best for you.

While cosmetic improvement is often a factor in seeking hand vein treatment, Vein & Skin Laser Center understands that relief from pain is often the primary concern for patients in Atlanta, Sandy Springs and the surrounding communities in Georgia.

Our physicians use advanced diagnostic techniques to choose the best non-surgical or minimally invasive procedure for the treatment of hand veins and other venous disorders to ensure that both aesthetic concerns and painful symptoms are addressed simultaneously, effectively and safely.
