Can sclerotherapy or microphlebectomy be used to treat large dilated vein under eye? (Photo)

Hello. I have large preorbital vein visible under my left eye. Also small spider veins around both of my eyes which makes skin very pigmented and dark-bluish. I would like to know how can I treat these? What options available I've attached my photo

I would suggest a selective microphlebectomy for these veins over sclero. My colleagues in Nagorno Karabakh Republic are well versed in this technique and are available for consultation if you would like something in your region.

The veins that you show can be treated by either sclerotherapy or microphlebectomies or a combination of both.  Smaller veins respond well to sclerotherapy and larger veins are best treated by sclerotherapy.

This type of vein can be treated with microphlebectomy combined with sclerotherapy or sclerotherapy alone by an expert. 

We perform this in our offices.
