Other facial vein conditions

Some clinics may use sclerotherapy to inject and destroy facial and temple veins. At The Whiteley Clinic, we regard this as a risk practice. Veins on the cheek, temple and forehead can drain into the veins in the eye socket (orbit). There is a risk the sclerotherapy can go back through the veins of the orbit and into a major vein in the brain. Hence sclerotherapy should only be used on the face in exceptional circumstances, if at all.
