Is there any danger to having veins under the eyes removed? Should this procedure be avoided if the patient has circulatory problems? How wide are the incisions for removing under eye veins? What is the cost of this procedure typically?
At our center we treat under eye blue veins with a Cutera laser. It can take about 3 treatments as we only do sections for circulation to adapt. Out concern would be scarring from the puncture sites.
I am sorry, I do not believe you can get microphlebectomy under the eye. Those veins could potentially be injected with sclerotherapy.
Veins under the eyes can usually be treated with injections or surgical removal. Injections cause no scarring. Surgical removal is usually done through very tiny stab incisions around 2mm in width. There should be very little danger in treating under eye veins but nothing is without risk. The cost varies with physician and you should inquire from your treating MD. Circulatory problems should not affect this procedure.
Eye, or periorbital veins can be treated with excision, laser therapy and/or sclerotherapy. The decision which modality to use should be discussed with your doctor, as the first option is the most aggressive and invasive. Make sure you were at least presented with all of the options before deciding on one. The incisions should be the size of a ballpoint pen tip.
