What causes veins to become more visible?
The older you get, the more visible your veins become. Why? As you age, your skin becomes thinner and, at the same time, your veins weaken, getting stretched out and collecting more pooled blood. In combination, these two elements contribute to larger veins that are easily visible through your skin.
What does it mean when your veins are popping out?
Bulging veins can occur due to: Temporarily rising blood pressure and/or body temperature. When you’re exercising or working with your hands, blood flow in the area increases. Veins also swell in warmer conditions, as the body sends blood toward the surface of the skin to cool down.
Why are the veins in my hands sticking out?
1) The primary cause of bulging hand veins is age. Your skin loses its elasticity and becomes thinner as you age. The thinning of skin makes the hand veins much more visible than they were, and the loss of elasticity makes the hand veins appear.
Are bulging veins a sign of dehydration?

How do I get rid of veiny hands?
Surgery is the only way to permanently rid yourself of prominent hand veins. For instance, hand veins can be treated with a procedure called sclerotherapy.
