My eyes are really veiny do to use of steroids what could be the problem ??
Another good question from a Healthtap patient:
Veins around eyes become more visible from: genetic predisposition; aging; thinning skin from steroid cream or oral steroids; sun exposure. An eye MD or oculoplastic surgeon can determine best treatment and if IPL is a good option to help.
More information on IPL:
The Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) laser treatments use targeted beams of light to help the body absorb and remove unwanted spider veins. Each non-invasive procedure is completely safe when performed by one of our laser experts because they do not affect the skin or tissue surrounding the treatment area. The type of laser treatment will depend on each individual patient and our world-renowned doctors will recommend the best laser treatment to remove the unwanted under eye veins.
What Can I Expect from my Under Eye Vein Treatment?
Laser treatments for under eye veins are quick procedures that typically last no more than 30 minutes. Most patients report that facial laser treatments are virtually painless, however some patients may feel slight discomfort during the laser treatment. A topical anesthetic can be used for patients who are concerned about pain. For best results, patients should wear sunscreen and protect their face from sun damage after their treatment. If new under eye veins appear, patients can schedule follow up appointments to have them treatment.
