New / Larger Veins After Sclerotherapy in Hands - Beverly Hills, CA

I had my hands treated by a vein specialist in Beverly Hills. Treatment wasnt terribly painful.. kept the compression on 2 full weeks. After a couple months large top veins started disappearing. However, new stringy little veins on top of my hands have taken their place and worse, the veins under my arms and wrist have gotten HUGE. I mean, scary huge, like Im afraid to bump them into anything. I look like a body builder. And I have blue veins appearing at the surface on my palms now, which bruise all the time doing normal things with my hands. I really wish someone had told me your veins would get bigger and new veins would appear with this. Im concerned where this will all end - hasnt even been a year and looks worse every day.

I have treated patients with large veins on the backs of their hands with fiber laser. This involves placing a laser fiber inside the vein, placing local anesthesia around the outside of the vein, and then turning on the laser and removing the fibers slowly. This essentially shrinkwraps the vein from the inside out. I have not seen the problem you are describing

Wow that sounds pretty stressful!  Have you asked your doctor about it?
