Forehead veins and temporal veins usually can be treated by sclerotherapy. In the past, I would also occasionally make microincisions to disconnect the veins but I found this to be no longer necessary. With proper compression techniques, these veins can be treated by sclerotherapy alone under local anesthesia.

These veins get worse in the heat. They really pop then. Part of what caused them is that I used to wear hats and bandanas a lot. Even during excessive and hot yoga. I think it blocked veinous blood flow that was trying to drain from my head. Is there anything I can do about this?

My under eye veins are dark blue/purple, around the undereye and have been there since I was a child. They are painless, but very dark and noticeable. I've read on laser treatment and other options. What procedure would be best for these kinds of veins? How much would it cost without insurance, and what would the end result be? Thanks.

I have some kind of 'V' shaped vein on my forehead. It's apparent when I laugh, smile or perform other facial actions. A surgeon performed one treatment of sclerotherapy and vascular laser (on the same day). There have been no significant changes. Would dermal fillers be appropriate? What about surgically stripping and ablating the vein?

I had a filler injections in my tear trough and the injector hit a vein leaving me with a huge haematoma. Now 3 months on I have a permanent dark stain under my eye.

I am 40 years old, and a healthy size (5'4", 117lbs). In the past few years, the network of veins in the center of my forehead has become very prominent. They bulge constantly, and I see them in the mirror, photos, etc. It seems I have thin skin. The same is true on my hands, front my shoulder and neck. I know this is a delicate area (face/head), but is there anything I can do to reduce the size of these veins?
