Dear Suz123,

Veins can be treated with sclerotherapy (injecting a solution into the veins to cause them to close) or with laser therapy. Though forehead veins are not typically treated, I would recommend going to see a board certified dermatologist or vascular surgeon who specializes in sclerotherapy for a formal consultation.

Good luck,
