Is there any side effects to removing Blue Temple Veins at 30 years of age?

Removing Temple Veins
Around the age of 30 is when patients start to notice the blue veins around their temples and eyes with thinning of the skin, and is who I commonly treat. The procedure is relatively safe in the right hands, and in less than 5 minutes a long-pulsed 1064nm Nd:YAG laser can shrink the blood vessel, making it barely perceptible. Blood flow is redirected to the multiple surrounding veins, so it is not a problem.

I agree that there is no concern for blood flow of the face if the temple veins are removed. I recommend consultation with a board certified physician who is experienced in laser removal of blue temple/periorbital veins to achieve the best result. Best wishes.
No side effects.
The blood supply to the face is copious and there are no side effects to removing the prominent blue temporal veins that you see. There are many collateral veins to compensate for any veins that would be removed. There should also be no increase in size of any remaining veins.

Thank you for the question! It is rather difficult to fully assess your situation without an in-person exam. Such an exam would be necessary to ensure that your bulging vein is not an artery. If you do have a varicose vein, however, it can be effectively treated with sclerotherapy. This method uses a sclerosing solution that causes the vein to shrink. Usually sclerotherapy takes only 1 to 3 sessions to achieve fading of the undesirable veins.
An in-person exam with a board-certified plastic surgeon is the best way to assess your needs and obtain expert medical advice. Best of luck!
