By limited review of the submitted photograph, I feel that the demonstrated facial vein is too large to be effectively treated by YAG laser. A better approach when the vessel is more than 2 mm in diameter involves a specialized technique of very gentle surgical removal Micro-phlebectomy. Mini vein stripping (a micro-phlebectomy) can be done through a very small incision with rapid healing and decreased risks.
