Blue veins on the face

Some blue veins are branches of the facial vein and should not be removed. I would speak to a dedicated vein surgeon to discuss.

Facial veins

My preferred treatment for facial veins is 1064nm laser. Sclerotherapy is possible, but I much prefer laser on the face.  Laser will generally provide good results in fewer treatments, with fewer side effects compared to sclerotherapy.  If you find a provider who does both, you should get an objective assessment of what is best for you.

Facial veins

These can be treated either with sclerotherapy or with a laser.  A 1064nm wave length laser is particularly effective on blue colored veins.  Find a provider that offers both treatments and discuss which is right for you.

I would treat these veins with sclerotherapy. It may take several treatments to resolve the veins but the treatment works very well.
