And I had the first treatment yesterday.

I couldn't believe I was able to find someone within an hour of my home.

It seemed impossible to locate when I started researching.

I will update with information as requested and as I am able to share info.

So far is was just 4 injections into my LEFT hand with a 32 gauge needle and the sclerosant.

Almost no visible bruising. He thinks I may have to inject twice in each hand. Second treatment in about two weeks. 300 a pop.

Great doctor. Used to be a transplant surgeon and a vascular surgeon. That is why he was willing to do this. He said most of the doctors that do vein treatment are not as comfortable with the veins in the hands.

Hey Aport -

Was it painful? how prominent are your veins - were they more prominent on your dominant hand. I am right handed and you can only see my veins on my right hand - the right looks older too - the left is like a decade or more younger looking.

No not really painful. He injected lidocaine first. My veins are fairly prominent bilaterally. When I exercise they really pop out, even more so on my arms which he cannot treat. This is no doubt a result from YEARS of intense exercise and genetics. I have very thin skin and have lost volume/ sub Q tissue in my hands especially.

I will post a picture of my right hand prior and after. I did not take BEFORES of my left but he did. I don't want to take an after until swelling has resolved. I don't want people to to think the swelling is the outcome.

yes yes hon.

we are all doing what we can to look a little better...feel a little better and distract from the imminent decay that's inevitable. just slow down the aging process enough so some of us can milk what youth has to offer one last time.


i know for a fact sterlingrose had her hands injected with 60 grand of sculptura and it did some modest improvement.
