Spider veins are a common occurrence on the face. These "star" shaped veins with numerous radiating lines (resembling a spider' legs) are a cosmetic concern for million of women and men. Spider veins are most commonly found around the nose but may occur around the cheeks and lower face area.

What is the cause of spider veins on the face?

Unlike spider veins on the leg, facial veins are linked to excessive sun exposure. Age is another factor as most older individuals appear to have some degree of spider veins.

What is the best way to treat facial spider veins?

Spider veins can be eliminated from the face using lasers or intense pulsed light. The heat from the laser beam or intense pulsed light device selectively destroys the abnormal veins. Over time the spider veins disappear. There is minimal recovery time and the results are immediate.

Are there any side effects of laser therapy or intense pulse light?

Both laser and intense pulsed light are generally safe but in the rare dark skinned individual, some degree of scarring and/or hyperpigmentation (darkening of the skin) can occur.

How is laser used to treat facial spider veins?

Spider vein treatment is an outpatient procedure. During the laser treatment, your eyes will be covered to protect them from the laser light. The length of the procedure depends upon the size of the area you need treated. The physician applies the laser instrument to the area of treatment with a hand held laser probe. During the treatment, one feels a sensation of a snapping rubber band. If there is excessive pain, the physician can apply a topical local anesthetic a few minutes before the procedure. Most spider veins on the face can be treated within 45-90 minutes.

How does one feel after the laser treatment?

After the procedure, recovery depends on the area treated and the type of laser. You will have no pain but the skin may have a sun burn effect for a few days. The mild bruising and swelling usually take 7-10 days to disappear.

What is the cost of Laser treatment?


The procedure is not cheap and involves fees for the surgeon, possible anesthesia and the consultation. The average cost of the procedure can range anywhere from $ 500-1500 depending on the number of spider veins and extent of skin damage. Before undertaking the procedure, you should discuss the cost with the physician.
