Do Blue Temple Veins Return After Yag Laser Treatment? Even after several treatments?

Appearance of veins will return

Unfortunately, blue temple veins will return after a YAG treatment or even after several laser treatment sessions. The YAG laser will definitely help in reducing the appearance of the veins; however, they will eventually return. In order to completely remove the veins, the patient can have surgery to stop the recurrent visibility of them.

Slowly return!

Eventually they’ll return. Ng-Yag is often used to successfully combat superficial, dilated blood vessels. I often ask patients how long did it take for the unwanted blood vessel(s) to develop in the first place and typically get answers in the 10-15 year range. In theory, after a vessel has been fully destroyed, it should take almost as long for a new vessel to take its place.
