Forehead veins! Please help me! (Photo)

I'm only 23 and I'm suffering from visible temporal veins all over my head. I want to fix this problem as soon as possible. I live in Southern CA. Please advise me of the costs/ safest way. Dr. Rec's would be appreciated. I'm so young but they age me so MUCH! If I laugh, smile, talk, you name it! They appear to be getting worse EVERYDAY ! I constantly feel pressure and warmness. They all bulge with movement. When resting they create a crater like indentation on my head. I'm very Depressed....

Forehead vein treatment in Los Angeles

This requires microphlebectomy as it large sized. Two or three tiny puncture wounds and no down time except bruising. 

This is cosmetic and will cost 3500 - 4000 USD in Upstate NY and approximately $7000 in Los Angeles (includes facility fee).

You have a combination of forehead and temporal veins.  The mid forehead veins I treat with a combination of sclerotherapy and micro incisions.  The temporal veins I treat usually by sclerotherapy alone and sometimes with both sclerotherapy and micro incisions.  The results are very satisfactory.  This is an office procedure done under local anesthesia. The micro incisions if necessary are barely perceptible.

Veins at the temple and forehead area get more prominent with age as the fat in these areas reduces.  They can be safely and effectively treated with a long pulse YAG laser or Sclerotherapy.  There are advantages and disadvantages to each.  Please make sure your provider is very well experienced in this area as complications are more common in this zone as well.
