• Periorbital Veins

    Veins around the eye

INTRODUCTION

The skin around the eyes is 4 times thinner than the skin around the face. It has a translucency that allows structures such as blood vessels to be seen. Larger peri-orbital veins (visible veins around the eyes) can be a cosmetic nuisance. These are difficult to treat and require treatment by a specialist in laser surgery.


Use of Lasers around the eye requires specialist skill and insertion of metal internal eyeshields. Not using these precautions can result in permanent blindness or partial vision loss. So treatment of these veins should be undertaken by someone with the appropriate expertise.

 

TREATMENT

DrH will treat these veins using the long pulsed NdYAG 1064nm laser. This is a laser that is used for the purple/blue darker larger veins (greater than 1mm diameter) around the eyes. It must be used with extreme caution as the wavelength can be very dangerous and cause blindness. This necessitates placement of an intraocular metal eyeshield.

If the veins are small and red DrH will usually treat these with a 532nm KTP/LBO Laser. This wavelength is more appropriate for smaller red vessels around the eyes. It is safer than the NdYAG laser but it still can cause trauma to the eye and should be used again with insertion of internal metal eyeshields. Please look at the video regarding eyeshield insertion.

Treatment for larger periorbital veins usually requires two sessions – over aggressive treatment to try and eradicate in a single session can result in heat damage to the fragile skin around the eyes and potential scarring. In order to minimise this risk DrH will often use the first treatment to reduce the size of the offending vein and then the second treatment to minimise further.

I was fortunate to meet Dr H when I booked an appointment via skn for my long lasting acne issues. I had seen many... expertsBut was finally diagnosed correctly by dr h, he prescribed medication which has finally stopped the acne. I have scaring however rather than suggesting expensive treatment which does not work he reassured me it would clear in time. I have not given him 5 stars because I’m too scared too just in case the acne returns however he really does deserve 5⭐️read more

After researching the best anti aging measures I could start taking approaching my 30s and in addition dealing with... unwanted imperfections I had developed along the way so far from spot picking, smoking/vaping, late nights and not taking overall care of my skins health, I decided to research more in-depth about laser skin resurfacing as a way in my mind to wipe the slate clean so to speak and really give myself a strong kickstart to taking care of myself and my skin. Upon discovering Dr Hussein, it was soon a flutter of the lashes to my lovely partner who paid for my treatment! And drove me over to my consultation! We both agree Dr Hussein is a wonderful man, he was thoroughly experienced and educated in laser skin treatments and has a YouTube channel showing how he performs treatments, covering a wide range of skin rejuvenation techniques. Not to mention his patients experiences videos after Thier healing can be seen on his Facebook and Instagram pages! At my consultation i decided this was the man to perform my treatment. From first approach he was polite confident and did a thorough examination of my skin, he also explained what I would benefit from, expectations and was extremely clear of the downtime associated with this treatment.Day of the procedureThe staff at skin were as welcoming and wonderful as the first time I met them, the lovely lady who works alongside Dr h came and applied my numbing cream and put me at ease, after about a 40 minute numbing wait the lady brought me into the room where I was to have my treatment, Dr h was extremely reassuring the whole time, asking if I was comfortable, explaining everything he was doing and was even kind enough after my treatment to explain everything to my partner, since I was drowsy and tired ( please have someone to escort you home) he gave me his contact number to monitor me throughout my recovery. Following days after treatmentNext dayMy face swole as expected eyes super tight and puffy the following day, it was a little scary due to the fact I couldn't see too well, (this is completely normal and to be expected though) Am and pm routine for 10 daysWash with dermol apply Vaseline or aquaphorMedsUpdate Dr h with selfies By day 2 yellow oozing and crusts were on my face (which is a good sign) and this continued for a couple of days, Dr h assured me everyday that things were going well I was healing as I should beBy day 3 all major swelling was gone and eyes looked all youthful and bright - outstanding! Skin was still peeling and gross though Day 4-7 still around the clock aftercare and support from Dr h via calls and Watts app, things were vastly improving, any questions I had were answered promptly, Dr H was extremely supportive! (Overall mood from day of treatment to day 4 was eat sleep and repeat lol. Plenty of high calorie snacks and fluid) Day 7-10 fucibet cream was to be applied for 3 days am and pm followed by my Vaseline Day 10 - today using gentle face wash and moisturising cream by a brand called ceraVe and spf 50+, skin looks brand new, little bit of rough texture on cheeks which is common after resurfacing and will always settle in a few weeks, I am looking forward to seeing my full results in 3-6 months, I don't want to speak too soon but I don't have a visible imperfection on my face! Dr h is the only person who will be performing any future treatments I may ever need later down the line in regards to laser. I have passed on his information to my sister and mother who will no doubt be in touch with him soon! Many thanks Dr H and team!read more

I had fully ablative co2 laser resurfacing 15th February this year (it is now July) and it was quite an experience!... This is a long one which will hopefully be helpful to anyone considering having it done who would like some insight. I will start by saying that I'm probably not the most obvious candidate for it as I'm only 30 and have been fortunate enough not to suffer acne scarring however I am a skin obsessive and perfectionist so I see a thousand flaws and I had it done as I wanted to get rid of some of the fine lines that had taken up residence over the last 5 years or so as well as other imperfections. The procedure itself wasn't painful (at least not most of the time) and Dr H was very reassuring however it does leave you feeling rather in shock afterwards I found, so if you can, have someone waiting for you after. I was prepared for pain in the immediate recovery days what I wasn't prepared for was how little I would be able to see due to the swelling up around my eyes (audio books are your friend at this point people! Also plenty of painkillers and food that you can eat without having to open your mouth too wide because that will hurt too.)I had a week off from work and then I had to go back and well looking at me was definitely pretty shocking - no longer hideous like I had been (there is a definite hideous monster stage of recover, no point sugar coating it) but pretty darn shocking. I had a lot of odd looks and as a teacher I gave my poor kids a bit of a shock but thankfully kids are super accepting. Every time I caught a glance of myself in the mirror though I'd be like "wow the kids are amazing!" they treated me just like normal after the initial morning of shock wore off and honestly I looked pretty awful for a while. Kids are way better at that stuff than adults. You just have to roll with it and concentrate on making sure you're doing everything right to help your skin recover. I didn't rush to put make-up back on or anything because honestly why potentially mess something so major up by not just waiting a little while longer. I did unfortunately get an infection around my eyes which meant they took longer to heal overall but Dr H soon got the infection itself cleared up and he checked the selfies daily. The recovery can be hard, I expect some people heal a lot more quickly than I do but I'm not a fast healer and it isn't easy to constantly have to put yourself out there not looking like yourself. It was at least month before I started feeling like my outside reflected my inside again and it can make various aspects of life difficult. Shortly before lockdown happened in the last week of schools being open I was wearing very light make-up again and looking passably normal but although probably not noticeable to most people I was pinker in overall tone and that takes a long time to fade. I was finally feeling attractive again though - yay! I think my skin appreciated lockdown and having more time of zero commute/pollution/little make-up as it gave it more recovery time and I now look totally normal. Well I say normal...I look better! The little lines around my eyes - gone! My cheeks - plumper! Gotta love that collagen. My mum says my cheeks remind her more of 19 year old me. It has also slightly softened the frown between my eyebrows (that thing is a curse) It hasn't totally perfected my skin but it has done a darn good job of all but the most problematic area of it. My friends say I look really good and I did not look bad before! It is quite fascinating because it is basically impossible for someone to put their finger on exactly what is different but something subtle is. I think if you had more skin irregularities or older skin you would probably see more dramatic results but it would still be very natural looking. I would have it or something similar done again in another 10 years or when I felt it needed doing but I urge you do plan enough down time! Was it worth it? Yes..but I'm not rushing to go through that recovery again ;)I hope this has been helpful 🙂 Thanks Dr Hussein 🙂read more

5 star results and 5 star service. I felt at ease in Dr H and his staff’s hands throughout my co2 laser resurfacing... treatment and after treatment, Dr has been on hand with any questions I’ve had and regular updates throughout my recovery. I received co2 laser mainly for acne scarring & marks and have noticed a dramatic difference in texture already, I feel like I have new baby skin 🙂read more

I am literally over the moon with the results of my fully ablative CO2 laser treatment. I have spent years researching... for the perfect Doctor and correct procedure to help reduce my acne scarring, I finally decided on Dr Asif and travelled from Liverpool to London for the treatment. Dr Asif and his team are so professional and supportive both during the procedure and the following weeks. I would say my skin is looking 80/90% better than before. Thank you so much Dr Asif, you're the best.read more

I am absolutely delighted with the results of my CO2 laser treatment. It was a big decision to have it done but Dr.... Hussein and his team could not have been more professional, more helpful or more supportive - both during the procedure and in the weeks following it. The improvements are considerable but look totally natural and I feel so much more confident. Thank You!read more

I had tailored liberator subcision with Dr Hussein, he was so friendly, knowledgeable and professional! The procedure... was not painful at all, you'll be under local anaesthetic, and even after that you feel 0 pain! The recovery was super quick just 1 day. You can see results the day after, I can see a major improvement in my tethered scars and I am also having done in 1 month the Fully Ablative Laser. If you have acne scars, trust Dr Hussein, he is honestly the best specialist out there! I cannot thank him enough, he brought so much confidence in my life!! 5 *****read more

I reached out to Dr. Hussein, from the US, to discuss ablative laser resurfacing and to discuss his approach with acne... scar cases. He couldn’t have been more friendly and attentive during these discussions. He clearly understands parameter control and was willing to share his insights which is very appreciated. Happy to have met him and would recommend him to anyone in need of resurfacing. You will be in good hands.read more

Dr H was recommended to me as in the past I had a bad experience with a Dermatologist sometime ago. I could not... recommend Dr H more as from the first consultation Dr H was honest and straight forward about the treatment I needed for acne scarring. Dr H recommended Subcision first followed by C02 Laser. Dr H fully explained the reason for the Subcision and i am glad I went for it. I have seen a significant difference in the scarring with the Subcision alone. I have now followed this up with the C02 laser and although I am still in the healing process, I am looking forward to seeing the results. Throughout this, Dr H has been in contact, and taking me step by step through the process. On both treatments, Dr H was very reassuring and informed me of what he was doing and when, which relieved some of the anxiety. I also have to mention Lulia, who has been great again through both treatments Both make a great team.read more

I am very happy with the result!I had very large pores and sun damage on my skin, I had halo laser but it was a light... laser for the size of my pores so we attempted a mild Co2 laser, today is day 11 and I can't be happier with the results, the large pores have reduced a lot! My skin looks younger, healthier, still a bit red but that will settle soon.I have definitely achieve what I wanted I am not going to wear make up foundation for a while 😊. Dr H has been there for me every time I had a question, daily since the first day giving me advice and looking after me. It was the best money investment I've done on my skin. Also mention Iulia, she has been incredible taking care of me while I had the treatment as I had to go on my own to the clinic, reassuring me and making sure I was fine. I know how important is this as I am a nurse myself, they both made me feel like at home. Thank you all! 😘😘read more

I was recommended Dr Hussein by a friend and have been having anti-aging treatments for a couple of years. I am always... very happy with the results and find him highly skilled, reassuring and friendly. He offers wise skin advice and his treatments are targeted at exactly the areas that need work, non invasive & quick procedures. His results are subtle and natural which is exactly what I want to achieve. I highly recommend Dr Asif Hussein.read more

I can already see big improvement on my skin texture even though I know my skin still needs loads of time to fully settle so the improvement will continue.Thank youread more
