I would like to know the best proceedure to remove the superficial temporal artery. I suffer from two protruding arteris that bulge out of my temples up through my forehead. I would prefer surgery (a permanent removal solution) rather than trying to cover it up. I can not cover it up as I have a receeding hair line and cut my hair extremely close to my scalp. The picture is very similar to my condition
