Q&A: Can Normal Veins Be Treated?

Question: Can normal veins be treated? 

So I have normal very long green bluish color veins in my wrist. I know there normal but I hate how they look. Can I treat it with sclerotherapy? I also have 2 long green veins in my chest. Help! Also I’m 15, can I go through sclerotherapy?

Answer: Traditionally, normal veins are not treated. However, in this day and age of the pursuit of “aesthetic perfection”, you may be able to find someone to treat such veins. It is important that if you chose to go down that road that you do your homework and know that you are seeing someone who is competent in such treatments. You do not want to end up with a worse result that you started.
