For many people, veins that are visible around their eyes can lower the aesthetic appeal of their overall look. These veins can also make you appear tired and run down when you are not. While having the veins can be a nonharmful part of aging, we understand that you might dislike the look of the eye veins. Dr. Matthew Lynch can help you to find the best possible treatment for your issues. Schedule a consultation at Lynch Vein & Aesthetics in Peoria, AZ for a full work-up of your periorbital veins.

What are periorbital veins?

Periorbital veins are small veins around your eyes that bring blood to the vessels in your eyes. These veins can normally function and do their job without becoming visible from under your skin. They can be blue, purple, or yellow, and they can be a normal part of aging. These veins may become visible because the skin under your eyes is thinner than other areas. Periorbital veins are naturally around your eyes; however, they are not prominent in every person. If you are bothered by your periorbital veins, our office may be able to help you.

What causes prominent periorbital veins?

As you age, the skin around your eyes may become more clear and colorless. This may cause the veins underneath to become more prominent and visible. For some, this could just happen, but other reasons may include:

  • Genetics: Periorbital veins may run in your family, and you could end up with this issue

  • Sun damage: If you experience sub exposure multiple times with proper UV protection, you could experience more prominent periorbital veins

  • Skin tone: If you are naturally paler, your veins may become prominent at a younger age than normal

  • Lifestyle choices: Any activities that damage your skin, like a tanning bed, can cause prominent veins

These causes could impact the way your periorbital veins appear around your eyes as you age. If you are experiencing periorbital veins, contact Lynch Vein & Aesthetics in Peoria, AZ to learn how we can help you.
