SheFinds Asks You: Yikes! Would You Devein Your Hands?

We've brought you all sorts of odd beauty regimens: press-on toenails, removing toes so your shoes look better, pedicure by piranha pool, but we seriously think we've seen it all now.

According to the Daily Mail, women in the UK are having veins removed from the tops of their hands for a smoother, younger look.  The article goes into great detail about the reasoning behind the surgery: women are afraid of being judged harshly and are so afraid of appearing older that they're having plastic surgeons remove seemingly offensive (read: visible) surface veins right out of their hands.  A couple of shots of anesthetic, some pricks and pulls, one or two weeks of swelling and voila!, no more large veins on the tops of your hands.

Did you just yell "WTF?" We know we did.  Have we really become a society that judges women so harsly that we're willing to take veins out of the tops of our hands so people won't think we look old?  Crepey skin is definitely a sign of aging, but there are less invasive procedures you can undertake, like exfoliating and using a good anti-aging hand cream, for example. We recommend Pretty Feet & Hands Rough Skin Remover and RoC Retinol Correxion Hand Repair for your daily regimen…like, NOW.

What do you think?  Is vein removal chic or freak?  Vote or let us know your opinion in the comments section.

PS: Did you know you could get spider veins in your face? Well you can and a Dr. Bruce Katz, MD has developed a laser technology (called RBX) as a preemptive strike of sorts. If women are willing to dig veins out of their hands, we can only imagine what they'd be willing to do to get them off their face. Scary!
