Does veinwave work for vessel matting (face)?

Telangiectatic matting after vein treatments usually subsides after 12 months.
What you are describing is ohmic thermolysis which works and needs multiple sessions. See a vein specialist who also has access to IPL and pulse dye laser.

In our office, we use a combination of PDL and IPL Limelight to help reduce matting and blushing on the face.
Vein matting can occur with vein treatments. We often give this several months to resolve. What does not resolve with time and patience we inject with glycerin or treat with the veingogh device. Veingogh uses Ohmic thermolysis to close the veins and remove the visible matting.

Matting can be a common problem with vein treatments. Often it is caused by inflammation. I would suggest giving it 6 months to clear, as often it will. If it does not, the newer versions of vein wave work very well. They use an electrical current to constrict and ablate the unwanted veins via a fine needle.
Some of the older vein wave machines are a little under powered, and may require multiple visits.
Best luck to you,
