Could Laser Damage Face Nerves?

Laser side effects
It is unlikely that the use of a laser to treat facial veins would damage any nerves as they are typically much deeper below the skin's surface and are intimate with the muscles. In addition, nerves tend to be white and do not absorb laser light energy.
