    Facial Veins & Spider Naevi

Laser is a gold standard in the treatment of facial thread veins. When the appropriate laser device is used treatment is quick and efficient. Simple cases can be done in a single treatment. More complex cases may take 2-3 treatments.

The most effective lasers for the treatment of facial veins are as follows:

Long pulsed NdYAG Laser (1064nm)
Suitable for larger calibre deeper facial thread veins

KTP Laser (532nm)
Suitable for finer thread veins

Pulsed Dye Laser (595nm)
Suitable for the treatment of very fine vessels which cannot be seen by the naked eye. This laser is often used in the treatment of the generalised redness (caused by a high density of micro-vessels invisible to the naked eye)
