Under Eye Vein Treatment
We have excellent results with VeinGogh (ohmic thermolysis).
Unlike laser, instant results and no risk of hyper- or hypo- pigmentation.
Depending on size of veins, may take more than one treatment.
Veins under the eyes
The treatment of veins under the eyes is a bit controversial. You have several options (other than doing nothing, which is always an option, as this is clearly aesthetic) - these options include laser, or sclerotherapy (which might be done with either liquid and foam), and microphlebectomies (taking the veins out thru tiny incisions). Each treatment has relative risks, advantages and disadvantages. With good eye protection and adequate skin cooling, an external YAG laser (1064nm) such as the Cooltouch Varia is an excellent choice - but it should be done by someone with a really good machine and plenty of experience. Many physicians swear by sclerotherapy (injections of the veins) - this carries the very rare risk of blindness and should be done with caution. Very large veins can be treated with microphlebectomies. Whoever is doing your treatment should be an expert in whatever modality they use. Hope that helps!

Veins Around Eyes
Laser treatment is one option that has proven effective for veins around the eyes. I would suggest consulting with a vein specialist who has experience treating veins around the eyes before considering any other treatment options.
