Prominent veins on your arms and hands are not a major health issue. Their function is simply to carry blood back from the hands to the heart. Large bulging veins on the backs of your hands occur because your skin relaxes and thins. There are a few reasons why the hand skin loses elasticity, but age is the most common one. This condition does not usually cause pain, but the veins do become more noticeable, and due to their bluish color they can change the overall coloration of hands.
Visible arm and hand veins are also very typical with athletes – it is quite normal for veins to bulge when you exercise, and if you have a low body fat percentage of 8% or less, you veins will naturally become more prominent. Veins which are about 4-5 millimeters in diameter and straight will not be problematic in most cases. Despite the fact that they’re harmless to health, extremely prominent arm veins might look sexy on a masculine body, but on a woman maybe not so much… What do you think?
