Bulging Veins On Your Hands & Why They Pop Out

Bulging hand veins can be perfectly normal, but can be a valid cosmetic concern if their enlarged look bothers you. Sometimes, enlarged hand veins are due to a more serious vein condition, such as varicose veins. It’s always a good idea to see your vein doctor about bulging veins in your hands for proper diagnosis. We can recommend effective vein treatments to improve the look of veiny hands, and improve your health by restoring proper circulation.

A Guide to the Bulging Veins on Your Hands

Bulging veins can occur due to:

Enlarged, varicose veins can bulge out as a result of blood pooling in the vein. This happens when the one-way valves inside the veins are damaged and/or weakened from age. Instead of keeping blood flowing against gravity towards the heart, vein valves let blood leak back down into the hand. Using advanced Doppler Ultrasound equipment, we can examine your veins and blood flow in detail. Whether your visible hand veins are diagnosed as cosmetic, or due to a more serious issue like varicose veins, our vein doctor can treat them with one of our advanced, minimally invasive vein treatments.

What to Expect After Hand Vein Procedures

After the targeted vein is treated and closed, blood is naturally re-rerouted through the area in nearby healthy veins. The collapsed vein is gradually broken down by the body. Vein treatment recovery is quick, with only minor discomfort and minimal downtime. Procedures take under an hour, then you go home. You can typically continue with normal activities 24 hours later.
