thank you for your query.

causes for breast veins-

-Breast veins mostly appear during the puberty when breasts expand rapidly.also in people who work out.
-Sudden weight gain or weight loss and breast augmentation treatment may cause breast veins.
-usage of OCP pills.

this happens when venous valves do not operate normally. This blocks the working of the venous circulation. The veins are pushed onto the skin and they become visible.

Usually the breast veins disappear with time. The veins fade on their own at the end of puberty.some home remedies include-

1.Wear supportive bra -When your breasts are not supported adequately, the gravitational pull may increase the blood flow thereby making the veins more visible.

2.Treatment with vitamin K - Applying a moisturizer enriched with vitamin K may helps. Vitamin K has a number of positive effects on the skin namely production of collagen fiber and maintaining the artery elasticity. It thickens the skin and makes the veins appear lighter.

3.Apply self-tanners to get rid of the veins-these have Vit -E which's necessary for the smooth skin.

thank you ,
wishing you good health
