Hi, I am a 30 year old male. Just recently, maybe the past month I have noticed the veins in my arms have gotten huge. 2 main veins that run down my entire arms on the front of my forearms, not the back.. This was never a problem in the past but now it seem to be constant. I have vericose veins in legs but do not think that these are vericose veins, just large veins. Anyway, because of the vericose veins in my legs I absolutely hate looking at veins. Now all of a sudden I have to stare at these very large veins in my forearms all day while standing. My question is; what can be done about this? Is their anything natural I can do to reduce the prominent veins in my arms? What about laser surgery or injection? Is it common practice on the arms?
It is very unusual to treat arm veins. They are useful for IV's and blood draws and if they were to be destroyed, I think you will ultimately come to regret their loss. Potentially they could be eliminated with injection therapy.
