Periorbital Veins FAQ

Why do I have periorbital veins?

The most common reason people have periorbital veins is genetics. However, exposure to the sun and aging can also cause the skin beneath the eyes to become lax or lose elasticity, and thin causing the veins to become more visible.

How do you get rid of periorbital veins?

There are a number of treatments that can reduce or diminish the appearance of periorbital veins, including:

  • Sclerotherapy - an iodine solution is injected into the veins, causing them to scar and reroute the blood flow through healthier veins, reducing their visibility.
  • Laser therapy - a laser is used to seal off the veins to reduce their visibility with minimal recovery time.
  • Undereye dermal fillers - add volume and texture under your eyes to hide the veins, but this isn't a permanent solution and usually lasts about six months.

Is periorbital vein removal safe?

Sclerotherapy, laser therapy, and under-eye fillers all have good safety records and are effective for reducing the visibility of periorbital veins. During your consultation with Dr. Lynch, he will go over the various aspects of each procedure and help you decide which one is right for you.

Are periorbital veins a sign of a health concern?
Periorbital veins are typically not a sign of a health concern. Most often, they're considered a cosmetic issue rather than a medical one. Nonetheless, if you notice any sudden changes in their appearance or experience additional symptoms, Dr. Lynch recommends a consultation to rule out any underlying health issues.

Can periorbital veins return after treatment?
There is a possibility of periorbital veins returning after treatment. The likelihood of recurrence depends on various factors, including the chosen treatment method, individual genetics, skin type, and lifestyle habits. Dr. Lynch can provide personalized advice and follow-up care to address this concern.

Can periorbital veins fade on their own?
With lifestyle changes (like improved sleep or stress reduction), periorbital veins may fade in appearance. However, it’s uncommon for them to completely go away on their own. Generally, these veins tend to be persistent and often require professional treatment for significant improvement.
