Removing Blue Temple Veins?

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?
Removing Temple Veins
Around the age of 30 is when patients start to notice the blue veins around their temples and eyes with thinning of the skin, and is who I commonly treat. The procedure is relatively safe in the right hands, and in less than 5 minutes a long-pulsed 1064nm Nd:YAG laser can shrink the blood vessel, making it barely perceptible. Blood flow is redirected to the multiple surrounding veins, so it is not a problem.
Blue temple veins
I agree that there is no concern for blood flow of the face if the temple veins are removed. I recommend consultation with a board certified physician who is experienced in laser removal of blue temple/periorbital veins to achieve the best result. Best wishes.
No side effects.
The blood supply to the face is copious and there are no side effects to removing the prominent blue temporal veins that you see. There are many collateral veins to compensate for any veins that would be removed. There should also be no increase in size of any remaining veins.
