Removal: If they are really big. Mostly these are small and do not require any treatment. Please see a vascular specialist.

Several options: One option: nothing they dont need to be removed. 2nd option, would be a phlebectomy or surgical removal.This is especially good for larger veins. 3rd option, sclerotherapy which is injection of a medicine into the vein to make it go away. This option is can be done only on vein on the side not on the middle of the forehead. I would recommend seeing a vein expert experience with facial veins.

Multiple options: I don't think that there is a single best way but there are mutiple options including sclerotherapy, ipl, laser, veinwave, veingogh and micro needle radio frequency. The size of the veins and the training and experience of the treating physician usually influence what treatment is recommended. My usual treatment is sclerotherapy or laser for very small veins. You should see a vein specialist.

Usually: Born that way. Quite frequent presentation. Certainly, body builders, weight lifters can develop veins on the forehead, i suppose. Maybe a trumpetist as well...
A 38-year-old member asked:

What to do if I have this bulging vein in my forhead when lying down or smiling, any idea what causes this?

Probably normal.: Forehead and facial veins usually enlarge when bending over or straining or smiling. They usually do not bulge when lying down, and, in fact, usually get smaller. The reasons for the change in size of the veins are many including changes in intrathoracic and intra abdominal pressures, levels of hydration, and positions of the body. Most likely what you experience is normal.
