Hand Veins and Hand Rejuvenation
What are problem hand veins?
These are usually normal, healthy veins that have become more visible. They aren’t necessarily diseased and usually don’t cause pain, but they can be unattractive to those who have them them on the back of their hands. Many people seek to have their prominent hands veins and varicose veins of the hand treated for cosmetic reasons.

Dr. Pittman on Treating Hand Veins
Your Hand Vein Removal Questions Answered By Glamorous “Becky in Boca”!
Don’t I need my hand veins for a hospital IV?
Wouldn’t it be dangerous to get rid of my hand veins if I need an emergency IV?
The quick answer is no.
Interventional Radiologists, like Dr. Pittman, are the first physicians to be consulted when there is a vein access issue in a hospitalized patient.
1 – Critical IV access is almost always obtained in larger visible veins, or more often these days with tools like ultrasound guidance, in the elbow crease, upper arm, or even the shoulder, neck and groin areas.
2 – The WORST place for critical IV access is the back of the hand as these veins are typically too small and they are prone to rupture and extravasation.
3 – Many patients do not have accessible hand veins for many reasons unrelated to cosmetic hand vein removal including they were born with tiny hand veins and these patients are not at any more risk than someone who has easily accessible hand veins.
4 – Emergency IVs for patients in the field being transported by ambulance are increasingly being fluid resuscitated using “Interosseous Infusion”:
Due to the rapid advance and adoption of superior intraosseous access technology, IO access has now become the preferred method of establishing vascular access for patients in whom traditional access is difficult or impossible. This includes patients experiencing cardiac arrest, major trauma, airway compromise, severe dehydration, and/or hypoperfusion (shock). IO is also an alternative route for patients who typically have poor peripheral vasculature or challenging vascular access such as diabetics, renal patients, burn victims, IV drug users, obese patients, dehydrated patients, the very young or elderly patients, and others. Many EMS services and hospitals are now using IO as their first line solution for vascular access in both adult and pediatric cardiac arrest victims, enabling administration of lifesaving drugs much earlier than previously possible with traditional peripheral IV placement.
