With age, the skin naturally relaxes and gets thinner, making the veins on your hands and arms more visible. For some people, the veins become prominent, unattractive, and bulging.
Prominent veins on your hands or arms are usually a cosmetic issue. But if looking at the bulging blue veins make you cringe, or you find yourself hiding your hands, Bellamah Vein Center can help! Dr. David Bellamah will recommend the right procedure to treat prominent, bulging hand and arm veins.
In sclerotherapy, a tiny needle is used to make multiple injections of a solution (called a sclerosant) into the vein. This solution causes the vein walls to stick together and then seal shut. The vein can no longer hold blood and is eventually absorbed by the body. It will take several weeks for the treated veins to fade and disappear. Most cases require a series of treatments scheduled a few weeks apart.
In phlebectomy, a series of pinhole incisions are made next to the vein(s) to be treated. A special hook is then used to gently remove the vein in sections through these incisions. More than one vein may be removed in a single session.
