Hello Becky-Lee, thank you for the question.
This is a difficult question to answer over the net. If you only have “blue veins” that are visible, then one may consider laser vein removal. If however, a groove has appeared and/or there is a blue discoloration in the area as well, a number of treatment options exist.
Therefore, your best option is to consult a cosmetic dermatologist, aesthetic practitioner, or plastic surgeon, and have a thorough examination of the area that concerns you.
Following the description you give regarding the veins under both eyes, my feeling is that this will not be solved through surgery, and one should rather consider various non-surgical options.
The choice of treatment will entirely depend on what the cause of the blue discoloration is:
Topical applications such as Cernor XO if the discoloration is due to hemoglobin in the skin.
Filler of the peri-orbital area can be considered if the naso-jugal fat pad has disappeared and is producing a ‘shadow effect’.
Laser: this treatment may be considered for vein removal only.
