EXPERT Q&A

Q: I have random veins on my nose and other parts of my body. Are they spider veins and can they be removed?

What our experts say:

Some are spider veins and some are so called “broken capillaries.” They can be removed but sometimes they’ll require different lasers. The bigger spider veins on the body may require a different laser than the smaller broken capillaries on the face. Usually it will require more than one treatment for the best response and treatments are often done about six weeks apart.

They can be called spider veins. Normally that term is mostly used for the leg veins. On the face normally we do it with lasers, not injections. With the legs we use sclerotherapy.
