How do you treat under eye veins?
It is borderline in size and is amenable to sclerotherapy or microphebectomy. Either way, use some topicals before and after to reduce hyperpigmentation in the under eye region which has very thin skin. See link for Sclerovase and also Scler-X

Eye Vein Treatment
Typically, small veins around the eye are best treated by laser removal. The laser energy targets the affected vein, safely removing it. Seek out a specialist and schedule a consultation for more information.
Safe treatments for my vein
Peri-orbital veins like this are known as reticular veins, and are best treated with the 1064 Nd-Yag laser. It is very safe, and generally only requires a few treatments, with no downtime and essentially no side effects. We rarely use sclerotherapy on facial veins, but this is also a possible treatment, but requires much more care and finesse, especially this close to the eye, and you may experience bruising, firmness and tenderness of the vein following injections. We reserve this only for veins that do not respond to laser.
