Can Bulging Veins in the Middle of the Forehead Be Treated?

Doctor Answers 2

How do you treat bulging forehead veins ?

These should be treated by an experienced vein specialist or plastic surgeon. Microphlebectomy is used for the larger veins with care taken not to puncture the frontal sinuses.

Bulging forehead veins

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,
