Enlarged hand veins are normal veins that become more visible as the skin relaxes and thins with age. They are not considered to be diseased as are protruding varicose veins in the legs. They can however be easily injured and unsightly as the skin becomes more fragile. A combination of ambulatory phlebectomy and sclerotherapy may be necessary to treat unwanted hand veins.
Also, see information about facial vein treatments available from the Advanced Vein Center for the treatment of varicose veins.
