Veins on chest wall
If there are no underlying medical conditions, these can be treated with 1 or 2 sessions of sclerotherapy or cosmetic laser.

New onset of chest veins should be evaluated to insure that there is no underling reason for the vein formation. This may necessitate a physical exam and possibly a mammogram, chest x-ray or other diagnostic test. If the tests are normal then the veins can be treated by sclerotherapy.
