Correcting vein colors

I'm at a loss on how to fix these ugly blue vein discoloration on this gal's forehead without cloning, patching, any of that. The object is to keep the detail of the skin, not damage any pixels, and just color correct without giving the impression that the pixels are overexposed in that ugly red/orange color. I was using color curves but there must be an easier way.

Anyone want to give it a try, have any ideas?

Re: Correcting vein colors

Try using hue saturation adjustment layer and lowering the blue basically and mask the areas you do not want effected. The same way I reduce reds see this tip http://www.varis.com/StepByStep/HSCc...lorCorrect.PDF

It removes reds should work for blues as well.

Re: Correcting vein colors

Hard to see in your example...If I have it right I added a layer set to color mode and sampled a good color and painted over the area. If the new skin color is too dark use dodge and burn as needed to match luminance.

Re: Correcting vein colors

It is very faint. At first I thought you posted a wrong pic, lol.

You could use the smudge tool in color mode maybe.
