Vein Institute of Connecticut treats hand veins

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) - We are joined by Dr. Alex Afshar from the Vein Institute of Connecticut, located in Newtown, Fairfield and Westport, a specialty medical practice which is dedicated to treating venous disease using the safest and most innovative treatments.

Dr. Afshar educates us on hand veins. Veins on the hands typically become more prominent with age, resulting in our hands showing age faster than any other part of the body.

The loss of elasticity and thinning of skin is the primary and most common reason why your hand veins become more and more visible.  Rather than an underlying medical problem, it is the natural process of aging that causes your hands to show these bluish or purplish bulging lines.

There is a solution for hand veins. The fast and low risk procedure involves injecting solution into the vein, causing it to collapse and be absorbed in to the body. This procedure is painless, simple and safe.
