How to treat hands veins due to weight lifting ?

have noticed that my back hands veins poped out. Kindly note that I used to do weight lifting twice a week and restrict my fat intake to the healthy ones ( avocado , olive oil, olives, oily fish,nuts,...). It has been a week I stopped the work out and am trying to increase my fat intake (peanut butter,vegetable pate,) . I am horrified by the bulging veins but I won t go for surgery neither laser treatment. I might consider the vitamin k hand creams. I noticed that when i raise my hands the veins do not pop out. When I am in a cold area the veins do not bulge . I understand it is not threatening my health, but being a female I am very concerned about the aesthetic aspect of my back hands and am unable to accept the bulgng veins as part of my back hands.

welcome to HealthcareMagic
Initially you exercised to make your hands look muscular ;muscular hands give rise to prominent veins .Please don't take extra fat it will not help you cover the veins & in turn spoil your health .Let it be as it is as you have left exercise it will get reduced but it will be visible & prominent.They don't trouble you so please you don't trouble yourself.

Prominent veins on the dorsum of hand is a normal anatomy . there is nothing to worry.Don`t try to hide them by taking extra fat ,as they are life line for doctors treating a patient for intravenous infusion .Stop thinking about it .Disclaimer
