Why use lasers instead of cautery for small facial broken capillaries?

Why pulse dye lasers for capillaries of the face?
Ohmic thermolysis (VeinGogh or VeinWave) or IPL or pulse dye lasers would be excellent choices to rid of these spider veins on the face.
Lasers are more accepted in the vein specialty than ohmic thermolysis.

Lasers for facial blushing and spider veins
Vascular lasers can be dialed to selectively coagulate diffuse and focal blood vessels on the face and add a level of predictability and safety.

Cautery for tiny veins.
Cautery can work for very small veins and the results are very good. Several treatments may be necessary. The size of the vein being treated is the determining factor since larger veins do no respond well to cauterization.
