Laser Treatment for Veins in Hands
Your hands often reveal your true age
Why Remove Veins From The Hand?
Quite simply, to look better and younger in a hurry. Many women are self-conscious about the way their hands look. Some have unusually large bulging veins that are very masculine - others object to "the old lady look" of hand veins. Doctors know that while facial procedures and treatments help you look younger, your hands often reveal your true age. Hand vein injection therapy, as done in our offices, offers a fast, simple, and virtually painless way to have younger looking hands. The results are dramatic and long lasting.
How Is It Done?
Injecting hand veins is similar to injection leg veins. Both are done in our office and no anesthetic is needed. All treatment is administered personally by Dr. White. Only FDA approved medications with a long record of safety are used and all equipment is single use and disposable. A small cotton compression bandage is worn for two hours after treatment. The treatment is virtually painless. You may drive home immediately. All activity, without limitation, is permitted.
Don't I Need These Veins?
The anatomy of the arm and hand is very much like that of the leg and foot. There are many veins which are able to return blood to the heart. Superficial veins (the surface veins we can see under the skin) are not essential, since there is a rich network of deep veins that is more than adequate to drain the hand. When treating hand and arm veins, we are always careful to preserve at least one arm vein for future administration of intravenous mediations.
What Are The Downsides Or Risks?
In a nutshell, there is no significant risk associated with hand vein therapy. The suntan-like darkening occasionally seen after leg vein treatment is never seen in the hands. Mild hand swelling may be present for a few days and there may also be some tenderness in treated areas, but these resolve quickly.
What Is The Cost Of Hand Vein Therapy?
We charge $700.00 session for hand veins. Treatment may require more than one session. While treatment of symptomatic leg veins may be covered by insurance, hand vein therapy is strictly cosmetic and not reimbursable.
