Throughout my years as a dermatologist, I have treated thousands of patients for matters concerning both general dermatology and cosmetic dermatology. In my experience, wrinkles, brown spots, and skin texture top the list of common cosmetic concerns. When bothered by these widespread problems, many patients are aware of their possible dermatologic solutions and pursue treatment.

Numerous patients also dislike the appearance of blue veins around their eyes. These veins grow increasingly common with age, as the already delicate skin around the eyes thins and appears more translucent. Other sufferers have lived with periocular blue veins since childhood. No matter the age in which they manifest, few patients welcome their appearance. Yet, many individuals continue to endure this cosmetic ailment, unaware that a simple remedy exists.

For many years, I have used a long-pulse high energy laser to treat periocular blue veins with impressive results. In pursuing cosmetic laser treatments, it is important to find a reputable board certified dermatologic surgeon with laser experience.

Don’t resign yourself to life with blue veins! If periocular veins bother you, laser treatments can put an end to your blues.
