On both sides of my head, above my eye I have veins, now they are not the traditional vein type, they look more like "dark" spots thicker at the bottom and as it goes up to my hairline it thins. If I pull the skin left a bit it does not really show. Looks like a very slight shadow. Can anything be done? Lasers? Fillers work at all? Scierotherapy seems horrible for face, do I need these veins? I don't want to die trying stuff. Its not a super big deal here but it would be nice to minimize.

Periorbital veins and forehead veins - treatment - Buffalo Niagara NY
We routinely treat such veins in our medical office. The largest of these veins may occasionally need microphlebectomy or microligation.
You should see an Oculoplastic surgeon who is the expert on eye related vascular issues. They can advise on your risk profile for the procedure.
Forehead vein treatment
These veins are common, and I often see them on patients with lighter complexions or who have low body fat. It's difficult to say for sure what might be the best option without seeing you in person, but laser treatment may be a good option. Also in some cases a simple minor surgical procedure may be necessary. I would not recommend sclerotherapy in this area. The bottom line is that this should not involve any high risk procedures. I hope this helps answer your question.
