Is there anything to do about visible veins in the forehead?
Thank you – I’m really happy you find it useful!!
This is a tough one because nothing is perfect for these. But here are some thoughts:
- An expert can shrink these slightly by injecting a few drops of glycerin (a concentrated sugar). It’s often used to treat small leg veins. Care must be taken to not use too much and not inject it into an artery!
- Many doctors think that YAG lasers are NOT safe to use close to the eye area and I agree because why ever take a chance with your eyes?? On the other hand, a YAG laser used for leg veins , may help shrink these;
- Also, if the fat pads in the forehead have really disappeared, sometimes a little Juvederm can camoflauge them. In this area, this is safe with a canula (a blunt tip) and not so safe with a needle. Experts only please!
Hope this helps, Dr. I
