Varicose Vein Removal on Chest

It’s quite common to find bulging veins on the legs and thighs. But in some cases, you can get them on the chest or the trunk of your body.

Causes of Blood Vessels on the Chest

Varicose veins on the chest affect both men and women. They can be caused by different factors for men and women, including pregnancy in women; deep vein thrombosis (DVT) – a vein disease; and cirrhosis of the liver, which is associated with alcoholism.

Spider veins in the chest area are caused by different factors, including damage from excess sun exposure, female hormones, or steroid hormones. In some cases, they can be a warning sign of liver disease, Cushing’s syndrome, or different other systemic diseases. As such, it’s important that you get proper diagnosis for chest veins by visiting Desert West Vein Center.

Compared to spider veins, varicose veins can cause a lot of pain, leading to a reduced quality of life, in addition to the cosmetic concerns. Whether you’re suffering from varicose veins or spider veins in the chest area, Dr. Kasha can recommend an appropriate, minimally invasive treatment that is virtually painless.

Treating Varicose Veins on the chest Area

Sclerotherapy is used to treat varicose veins that appear on the chest area. During sclerotherapy, Dr. Kasha injects a sclerosant into the dilated chest veins with a tiny needle so you won’t feel anything. The sclerosant causes the bulging vein to close so it’s not as prominent as before. Circulation continues through other healthier veins.

Dr. Kasha may treat the smaller veins (spider veins) on the chest using laser, IPL or radiofrequency equipment, because they’re fast and provide nearly instantaneous results.

Both types of dilating veins can be successfully treated following proper examination and diagnosis of each individual case. Please visit Desert West Vein Center to begin your treatment.

Dealing with spider veins during pregnancy

If you’re genetically predisposed to get varicose or spider veins, they may appear during pregnancy. Spider veins in the chest area will not harm your baby. But if you find them uncomfortable and unsightly, you might consider treatment.

Depending on the results of the examination and diagnosis, your doctor may recommend conservative treatments like getting plenty of antioxidants, especially vitamin C. Vitamin C helps in the manufacture of elastin and collagen, which are two vital connective tissues that aid in the maintenance and repair of veins.

Keep in mind that spider veins may disappear after the pregnancy. So you may choose to camouflage the most visible areas with flesh-toned concealer designed for that specific purpose. If the spider veins persist, you should visit a vein specialist.
