What are my treatment options for treating a vein on my eyelid? (Photo)

I have a vein on my eyelid and would like to know the most effective treatment to get rid of it. When I raise my eyebrows the vein becomes most prominent, becoming darker in color and slightly bulgy.

Prominent eyelid veins

This is a tricky issue. I would suggest laser therapy with eye shields to protect your eyes.

Eyelid veins treatment with laser

I have found that best way to treat this would be with a vascular laser.  Usually a 1064 nm (such as an Excel V) to get these deep purple veins.  I have tried using heat with micro needles and sclerotherapy in the past and had more success with a vascular laser.

Eyelid veins

I would treat the posted eyelid veins with micro needle radio frequency.  Other options would be VeinGogh, VeinWave or possibly even sclerotherapy
