Hi MidlifeMom1, Thank you for your pictures and question regarding the treatment of the blue veins of your lower eyelids. Blue lower eyelid veins are common due to deep thin skin of the lower eyelid. In my experience, these are best treated with ND:YAG laser. The procedure takes several minutes. The procedure is performed in the office. The area is anesthetized with a topical cream. I hope this answers your questions regarding the treatment of blue lower eyelid veins. If you have questions regarding the treatment of lower eyelid veins, please contact my office. Sincerely, Dr. Katzen.
Undereye veins are a common problem and can easily be treated by many methods including laser, sclerotherapy for larger veins, IPL, Vein wave, Vein Gogh and fine needle RF. Several treatments may be necessary.
Periorbital veins can be successfully treated with no downtime with 1-2 session of Cutera ExcelV laser. Treatments are painless, last less than 5 min and side effects include redness that can be easily concealed and self-resolves in a few days.
