I am considering having laser treatment for thread/spider veins on and around my nose. I hear good things about the KTP and Nd:YAG lasers. Is one more effective than the other for facial veins?
KTP vs Nd:YAG Laser for Vein Treatment
Doctor Answers (1)
Both KTP and Nd:YAG lasers are good
More important than choice of these lasers is who is going to perform procedure. Any of the vascular devices including KTP, Pulsed Dye Laser, and Nd:YAG should get good results in experienced hands on vascular lesions in light skinned patients. For darker skin types the Nd:YAG laser is safer.
