In most cases, visible hand veins are normal and healthy. They are not diseased, although they can be unattractive. Many patients choose to have them treated for cosmetic reasons. Many people develop large bulging veins on the backs of their hands as they get older. Generally, this happens when the skin relaxes and thins with age, causing the veins to become more noticeable and appear enlarged.
Normally, these veins do not cause pain and are typically treated for cosmetic reasons. The physicians of Vein Clinics of America are experts in treating hand veins. Schedule a consultation with one of our physicians today by calling (844) 890-VEIN (8346) or sign up online.
