Treatment for Blue Veins on Breast & Chest in Los Angeles & Ventura County

As with facial veins or legs/feet veins, visible breast/chest veins, which comprise spider and reticular veins, do not pose any physical harm. However, they can make you self-conscious and uncomfortable when wearing low-cut outfits. There are very few cases where blue veins on the chest have been associated with a serious condition such as liver cirrhosis, which can be quickly ruled out if there are no other symptoms.

Fortunately, there are several treatments available for breast and chest veins in Los Angeles. So, simply visit your Los Angeles vein doctor for assessment and treatment options.

Causes of Chest and Breast Veins

There are many factors that can cause blood in your veins to pool around your chest area, usually due to malfunction of the valves or loss of elasticity in the veins. The blood pools up causing the veins to get deformed and visible through the skin. There are several factors that contribute to this, including:

  • Aging – causes the valves in your veins to weaken, increasing the likelihood of varicose and spider webs appearing. At the same time, aging causes the skin to get thinner due to the loss of collagen, making veins more noticeable.
  • Gender – women are more likely to experience breast veins due to the effect of hormones on vein walls. Hormone imbalances occur due to the use of birth control pills, pregnancy, hormone therapy, etc.
  • Surgical procedures such as breast lifting, breast augmentation
  • Extended exposure to sunlight resulting in UV damage and photo aging that manifests as dilated capillaries
  • Hereditary component –some people are genetically predisposed to chest spider and blue veins, sometimes manifesting as early as puberty due to the sudden expansion of breasts, and later due to physical exercises involving resistance training or rapid weight loss
  • Obesity – the increased body weight is claimed to increase pressure in the blood vessels
  • Radiation therapy for cancer patients

Breast veins associated with hormonal changes, like during pregnancy, can disappear with time after stabilization of your hormones (after delivery). Some people also use self tanners, herbal supplements, and topical ointments to hide the veins, but these are only temporary solutions and the veins will not completely disappear without intervention.
