What is the treatment for temple veins ?

Temple veins can be treated with microphlebectomy (if large), sclerotherapy or long pulse lasers (KTP or Nd YAG). 

Those are quite common

and you can treat these veins with either injection or lasers but i would not recommend that be done.

scarring with the laser would be cosmetically unacceptable and injection of the sclerosant solution into the scalp would also be unwise.  alternatively, if they are quite large, an experienced phlebologist could perform a micro-phlebectomy for these veins.
