Where do periorbital veins come from?
There are a few causes behind periorbital veins, or the veins you see through the skin under the eyes. Some patients may be noticing these veins as an onset of sun exposure or damage. Others may have genetic factors, or attribute their periorbital veins to age-related causes. You may have one or a combination of causes contributing to the noticeability of these veins.

"Dr. Lynch is great with acne issues. I have struggled with cystic acne for all of my adult life. It has been painful and leaves awful scaring on my face. I did not feel comfortable going out without make up on. I have tried various treatments both orally and topical. Dr. Lynch came up with a treatment plan for me. He was up front and informative as to what I could expect and what I would experience. After my first treatment with Dr. Lynch, I noticed a difference in my acne. It was less painful and less red the next day and even more less going forward. By the third visit I felt comfortable and confident in going out without make up on. I still feel that way and with three kids and a baby, no make up means more free time. Thank you Dr. Lynch!"- A.K. / Google / Sep 23, 2022

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.
