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.

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.
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.
