Facial & Hand Vein Treatment

Removing Unsightly Veins from Face and Hands in Our Office


In addition to leg veins, there’s no area of the body where we haven’t treated varicose or spider veins. After leg and hand vein treatment, the most common areas that we treat are hands, temples/face, and breast/chest. Furthermore, it’s also not uncommon for us to treat spider veins on the neck and back. On top of that, we also treat vaginal varicosities, which may follow pregnancy. Certainly, these veins heal rapidly and the results of their treatment are excellent.

In short, prominent veins in the temple area often follow facial reconstructive surgery. Additionally, we see unsightly breast veins after breast augmentation. To sum up, these veins may detract from otherwise perfect cosmetic results. Treating them provides the “finishing touch.” Consequently, when we facial varicose veins, you may experience short-term bruising and edema (swelling) around the eye. Firstly, it must be emphasized that veins around the eye are separate and distinct from veins in the skull. Moreover, vein therapy in the area of the eye is absolutely safe.

Above all, we easily treat facial varicose veins with VeinWave, whether they’re presented as tiny red lines or matted telangiectasia. In short, VeinWave is a painless and brief facial vein treatment. During this procedure, radiofrequency treats the veins and causes them to close. In addition, we eliminate visible veins on the cheek or along the sides of the nose by using this device.

Hand Vein Sclerotherapy Procedures

Many women are self-conscious about the way their hands look. For example, some women have unusually large bulging veins that are very masculine. Some people refer to this as “the old lady look” of hand veins. Furthermore, plastic surgeons know that while facial surgery helps you look younger, hands often reveal your true age. Luckily, we do hand vein sclerotherapy in our offices. This procedure offers a fast, simple, and virtually painless way to have younger looking hands. Certainly, the results are dramatic and long-lasting.

Injecting hand veins is similar to injection leg veins. Fortunately, we do both procedures in our office and there is no need for an anesthetic. Additionally, we only use medications with a long record of safety and we use only single-use and disposable equipment. Subsequently, you would wear a small cotton compression bandage for two hours after the treatment. On top of that, hand vein sclerotherapy is virtually painless. After the procedure, you may drive home immediately. Moreover, all activity, without limitation, is permitted.

Above all, the anatomy of the arm and hand is very much like that of the leg and foot. In other words, there are many veins which are able to return blood to the heart. In addition, superficial veins (the surface veins we can see under the skin) are not essential. There is a rich network of deep veins that is more than adequate to drain the hand. Furthermore, when we treat hand and arm veins, we always preserve at least one arm vein. The reason for this is to be able to provide a future administration of intravenous medications.
