Both spider and varicose veins can appear in the breasts, beginning as bluish-green veins just beneath the surface of the skin around the areola. Spider veins, which are not a serious medical issue but can be unsightly, are often found beneath the breast fold, as skin begins to lose elasticity and stretch. Varicose veins, on the other hand, can be a sign of a more serious medical issue deep within the skin.
In your consultation with Dr. Wong, we will do an extensive ultrasound of the breasts, in addition to examining the chest, neck, and armpit areas. At Windward Vein, we get to the root of the issue to give our clients the best possible outcome addressing both cosmetic and any potential medical issues. Breast veins can be treated with a successful foam sclerotherapy or laser ablation treatment. Both procedures are minimally invasive and will close off any varicose and spider veins, lessening their appearance and producing a beautiful cosmetic result.
