Both laser types are among the treatment options for veins under the eyes. 

KTP is a beam generated by a neodynium:yitrium aluminium garnet (ND YAG) aser. This is directed through the KTP crystal to produce a beam in the green visible spectrum and has a wavelength of 532 nm.

ND YAG is a 1064 nm laser. 

Several options

Under eye veins are a common problem and there are several options to treatment including laser, sclerotherapy, IPL, VeinWave, VeinGogh and even micro needle radio frequency.  Sometimes combinations of these treatments work even better than any one alone.  This area can be treated by vein specialists, vascular surgeons, dermatologists or plastic surgeon.  The cost varies depending on what is done and how many treatments are necessary.

YAG 1064 nm for vein treatment

Thank you for your question.

Yes, the Nd:YAG Laser tuned to 1064 nm can improve the appearance of veins under the eyes.

Caution must be taken because this is a deep penetrating laser and it should be used only with eye protection in place and angled away from the eye where there is bone underneath the skin.

To be sure you are a good candidate, see two or more board certified physicians experienced with Lasers in your area for a full and complete evaluation.

I hope this helps.
