Removing Blue Temple Veins? Will the return blood flow rate be decreased?
Doctor Answers 2
No ill effects.
Blue temporal veins can be safely treated without any side effects long term. Short term there may be some bruising or swelling which may last 1-2 weeks. Treating these veins will not change the blood flow to any other veins.
There are minimal undue side effects such as bruising but these veins are unnecessary and can be removed without any detriment to the blood flow in the face or scalp.
