Several options.

What you show in the photo are very small spider/capillary veins.  These are not scars or nerves.  There are 2 options to treat these types of veins and it is important to note that 3 to 5 treatments may be necessary.  There are several types of lasers which work well and also fine needle microneedle radio frequency.  Ellman had a very efficient microneedle radiofrequency to treat these veins and ohmic theromlysis which is essentially microneedle radiofrequency with VeinWave or VeinGogh will work also.

Laser for facial telangiectasia

A pulse dye laser is ideal for these veins as they are very small. One or more sessions may be needed. I don't recommend sclerotherapy for these small facial veins.
