Facial veins and lasers.

The answer is in the wavelength. Video explains. I use both V Beam and the Nd Yag. To answer your question, both a very safe, however in the context of redness and veins,  V Beam in theory is safer as the depth of penetration is less. There have been a few reports of necrosis following Nd Yag at the corners of the nose due to the depth of this laser and the angular artery- this is extremely uncommon. Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane.
