Hide or close it off: The superficial veins under the eyes become more apparent as we lose fat in the face, ;/or as they enlarge from age, heredity etc. They are not needed. They can be safely treated with several sessions of vascular laser (usually not ipl, if more than 1 mm wide); or careful sclerotherapy injections.

You need only be concerned if you have bruising/bleeding elsewhere. ...Read more
