I have several large blue vessels in my temple and around my eyes.
They are not attractive and difficult to cover with make-up. Are there any options?
Facial vessels are a common development with sun and aging. Thinning skin and genetics can make blue vessels (veins) more visible. For years we have had a good understanding that red vessels could be treated with laser technology. Only recently is there understanding that these blue vessels may be treated as well.
Blue vessels have been shown recently to respond well to NdYAG 1064 lasers. Often only one treatment is necessary. Dr. Hamilton uses the Candela GentleYag 1064, which provides a protective cooling spray to prevent skin injury. Laser treatment sessions only last a few minutes and the procedure involves minimal discomfort. Recovery time is brief; patients can apply make-up that evening. Studies have shown results to be long lasting.
