Treatment for Blue Temple Veins?

I am a 24 year old female with blue temple veins that I have had since birth. I went to a clinic for treatment but they said they couldn't help me, although I have heard that the Nd: Yag laser is good for this. I'm worried that my particular veins are not treatable. From my picture, do you think they can be treated?

Treatment for Blue Temple Veins

While we cannot make recommendations based on photographs, the latest studies do show that the best treatment for blue temple veins is the new Nd: Yag laser, often done several times, with each treatment spaced at least 2 months apart.

Blue facial vein treatment

I have had great success with almost every patient using the long pulsed ND yag for facial and eye veins. This needs to be done by a specialist,  as lasers around the eyes can be dangerous . Please seek a board certified dermatologist in your area  who is fellowship trained in procedural dermatology as we are required to have extensive experience with lasers, facelift, liposuction, fillers and more .
