Removing Blue Temple Veins? Will the return blood flow rate be decreased?

Hi is there any side effects to removing Blue Temple Veins at 30 years of age? I mean the blood flow after the veins have been removed? Will the return blood flow rate be decreased? And will other veins be under greater pressure when they take over?

No ill effects.

Blue temporal veins can be safely treated without any side effects long term.  Short term there may be some bruising or swelling which may last 1-2 weeks.  Treating these veins will not change the blood flow to any other veins.

There are minimal undue side effects such as bruising but these veins are unnecessary and can be removed without any detriment to the blood flow in the face or scalp.
