Aging Hands calls for Vein Treatment
Updated on: August 18, 2014
For those of you plagued with wrinkling and aging hands sclerotherapy is now being used as a treatment method. Sclerotherapy is most notable for being used on spider and varicose veins. Although most dermatologists see patients for facial treatments, many do consider having work done on their hands. Hands can show a persons age quite quickly, which is why so many baby-boomers are seeking out such treatments. The Thai-Indian reports, "Sclerotherapy can help minimize prominent hand veins and significantly improve appearance of the hands, she added. Sclerotherapy is a non-surgical procedure that permanently removes unwanted veins and is considered by dermatologists to be the gold standard for the treatment of spider veins. The procedure involves injecting a special sclerosing solution with a very fine needle into the blood vessel, which irreversibly alters the vessel wall and causes it to be absorbed by the body, so that it fully disappears over time." Another perk to sclerotherapy is the fact that it is considerably less expensive than laser treatments and likewise only takes 3-4 sessions each running for about 10-minutes for full removal.
