How safe is Sclerotherapy to eliminate vein at the center of forehead?

I have a vein that goes right down the center of my forehead in a y shape and pops out everytime I smile, laugh, bend over, or lay down. Is there ANYTHING that can be done to get rid of this?? I've looked all over the web and some say it can be done with sclerotherapy and others say the vein carries too much blood to be operated on. HELP!

Hello,

First of all, the affected veins have been evaluated for the supply through tributaries and branches, which may be carried out by the doppler report of the vein. Now depending on the supply level and clinical correlation of the patient and the rest of the comorbid conditions, type of the curative steps to be considered.


Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
