Treating chest veins
Breast veins are common among women of nearly all ages, often appearing as flat, sometimes slightly raised blue veins. While generally harmless, these visible breast veins can greatly impact confidence and overall emotional wellbeing, especially as they become more prominent.
Many patients we have seen for leg vein concerns have asked for our expertise on addressing and treating breast veins. For qualified individuals, we are able to provide minimally invasive therapies to erase breast veins once and for all.
What causes breast veins?
Chest veins in women can appear due to a variety of factors including, but not limited to:
- Weight fluctuations
- Changes in hormones from certain contraceptives or even menstruation
- Pregnancy and/or breastfeeding
- Sun damage, which can impact skin health and cause veins to be more visible
- Aging, including both the normal thinning of skin and the effect of gravity, which causes stretching of the skin on the breast and can make veins more perceptible
What can I do about my chest veins?
While certain chest veins are temporary, particularly those caused by pregnancy and breastfeeding, others are often permanent unless treated.
Similar to aesthetic vein services we provide for leg veins, such as such as light assisted cosmetic sclerotherapy, we also help individuals erase visible breast veins. Our effective, minimally invasive, in-office procedure requires no anesthesia and no downtime and can help women regain their confidence and assurance.
