I visited a plastic surgeon and they said they could remove this vein that's along my cheekbone (pictured and indicated with arrows) using a "cool-glide laser."
What I want to know is if you are aware of any potential complications. They indicated that there were none, but I definitely need other opinions. My concerns range from possible loss of vision, scarring, and nerve damage. Their only concern was it might not kill the vein since they'd need to keep the setting low since the skin is so thin.
Thank you very much for your time and information.
