Veins under the eye can be an unsightly concern for those affected. Lower eyelid skin has a very thin dermis and loss of fat volume in the face as we age can all contribute to protruding or visible veins under the eye.
The veins in questions need to be assessed by a medical professional to establish if they can be treated, as the area around the eye is particularly sensitive and unsuitable for the similar treatments for other facial and body veins.
If you are suitable, we have Dr. Gupta – one of the only doctors in the UK with vast experience in treating this delicate area. The treatment is performed using a laser device called Cutera CoolGlide. The treatment involves pulses of light energy carefully directed at the vein, which causes the blood within it to coagulate. This leads to the destruction of the blood vessel which is reabsorbed by the body. Meanwhile blood flow is redirected to deeper veins in the face.
The treatment typically takes 15-30 minutes. A cooling gel is all that is necessary during the procedure.
- We are one of very few places in the UK to successfully treat veins under the eye.
- Dr. Gupta has performed the procedure hundreds of times.
The results should be noticeable immediately and for nearly all patients the result is permanent.
There is no scarring or downtime associated with the procedure. You can return to work immediately.
