Get Younger Looking Hands – Plus Say Goodbye to Breast and Face Veins
This is article is sponsored by the Vein Treatment Center
Our hands age faster than any other part of our body, and bulging veins and age spots can make us “look old”. And while many of us think of legs when we think of varicose and spider veins, they also can appear on our breasts – those unsightly blue veins – and spider veins and broken capillaries can be unsightly on our faces. But the good news is that there are easy, quick, and painless treatments for all these problem areas. Typically they respond extremely well to Sclerotherapy. Here’s an overview of some of the treatments pioneered by Dr. Luis Navarro, founder of The Vein Treatment Center in NYC.
The three main factors that make hands look “old”, are thick bulging veins, age spots and loss of tissues. The Vein Treatment Center has been treating hand veins since 1982 with sclerotherapy. The latest advancements pioneered by Dr. Navarro are painless, simple, and safe. Age spots can be treated with laser and other forms of treatments. And fillers and fat injections can plump hands that look boney due to tissue loss.
Hand veins are treated with ‘painless sclerotherapy’ in a 15-20 minute procedure. It is an extremely safe procedure, and there have been no complications regarding hand injections for over 30 years. After the treatment there is minimal black and blue and occasionally mild swelling for 24 hours. The cost for hand injections is $1,000 for the first treatment and $500 for any treatment after that. Usually 1-3 treatments are required.
Dr. Navarro recently performed sclerotherapy for hand veins on a patient “live” on the The Meredith Vieira Show.

Get Rid of Facial Veins
Facial veins are often referred to as small spider veins, broken blood vessels, broken capillaries, rosacea veins or facial telangectasia. These unsightly veins can be successfully treatment with either sclerotherapy or laser facial therapy. Each case is individually evaluated and then either sclerotherapy or laser facial therapy can be performed. Large blue veins respond very well to sclerotherapy. Advances in sclerotherapy such as better magnification, polarizing lenses and tinier needles allows the injection of even the smaller facial veins with very little trauma to the surrounding tissues. Any leftover small red veins will be treated with lasers.

Those Blue Breast Veins
Many women are troubled by the appearance of blue veins on their breasts. Varying in size, they appear on the surface of the breast in continuation with chest veins. After breast implant surgery, breast veins can become even more visible, marring the breasts appearance.
Occasionally, women may find spider veins or broken capillaries underneath their breasts. All these breast veins can be eliminated, with excellent cosmetic results with sclerotherapy treatment as you see in this before and after photo.
