No matter how well you look after the skin on your face, the backs of the hands will carry the tell-tale signs of ageing.
No matter how well you look after the skin on your face, the backs of the hands will carry the tell-tale signs of ageing. The skin here gets thinner and we lose fat from this area as we age, which means the veins will get bigger and be more prominent with time. So, although they don’t usually cause any physical problems, veins on the hands can add years to your appearance, particularly if you are very slim. The good news is veins on the surface of the hands can safely be removed leaving you with younger looking hands.

Hand Vein Treatment
Here at the Private Clinic we have pioneered a new laser treatment for removing veins on the hands known as Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA). We were one of the first clinics in Europe to offer this exciting new treatment and our success rate with EVLA is exceptionally high. We also offer foam sclerotherapy and a procedure known as microphlebectomies.
Laser treatment – EVLA
This innovative new procedure is a minimally invasive way of removing veins from the hands that produces excellent results. The advantages of this procedure include:
- It’s a 30 minutes walk-in walk-out procedure
- It’s performed under local anaesthetic so no need for a hospital stay
- Discomfort is minimal
- You can get back to your normal activities almost straight away
This involves injecting a chemical in foam form called Fibrovein into the veins you want removed. This blocks them off causing them to reduce in appearance. The advantage of this treatment is that there’s no need for a general anaesthetic, however, the success rate is not as good as with EVLA. This is why it is sometimes used in combination with EVLA.
This technique involves physically removing the veins through tiny incisions in the skin. In some cases it is performed in combination with EVLA.
After Your Treatment
Prominent veins are successfully removed leaving you with smoother, younger looking hands.
There is no downtime, you can get back to normal activities straight away.
