Cool Glide laser for facial veins
I agree with you that the treatment was too aggressive and it is hoped that you recover without residual scarring. An updated picture at 1 year will be a helpful post.
CoolGlide for Spider Veins
Hi Psyche. The Coolglide is an appropriate laser for small spider veins. The long pulsed Nd:Yg is a very common type of laser to use for spider veins on the face and extremities. With that said, the outcome of your treatment does not appear normal. If you are healed from this procedure now, but have some residual scarring then you should approach your practitioner about taking some remedial action. If you do not want to return to the practice, then you should consider asking them to pay for the procedures you may consider.
Fractional laser resurfacing may be a good option at this point to help with the scarring. Good luck.
