The best lasers are long pulse 1064 nm Nd YAG and 532 nm KTP lasers. 

We have both of these types of lasers as well as IPL in our laser offices. 

VBeam is the best treatment for facial veins

When addressing facial veins or facial redness, the most effective laser is the VBeam  Perfecta.  It has remained the gold standard for treating these conditions .

I hope you found this helpful.

Appropriate treatment depends on where the vessels are:

  • on the face, Lightsheer
  • on the legs Sclerotherapy; Lightsheer may work if they are very fine red vessels.

Best laser for vessels is Tunable Dye Laser.
