Options for Treating Facial Veins

Written by Dallas Vein Specialists on November 21, 2015

iStock_000017314791_DoubleNoticeable and unattractive veins on the nose, cheek, temple and around the eyes are  common cosmetic concerns for both men and women. Many people with these unsightly facial veins desire to have them removed to avoid embarrassment and discomfort. At Dallas Vein Specialists, we offer several advanced laser treatments that safely and effectively improve the appearance of facial veins.


For prominent or bulging veins around the eyes, the Cutera Excel V Laser is an effective solution. This amazing laser has two wavelengths (532- and 1064-nm) that provide state-of- the-art treatment of any superficial or deeper vascular pattern regardless of vein size and color. Prominent dark veins occurring on the temple areas, forehead, beneath or near the eye may be erased by this non-invasive laser treatment. The laser treatment applies light energy to the veins, without damaging other surrounding tissues. Skin cooling during the laser application makes the procedure easy with little discomfort.

Cutera Excel V Laser for Spider Veins of the Face

Spider veins are small hair-like blue, red or purple veins that are commonly found on the face, particularly on the nose, around the nostrils, and along the fold between the nose and cheeks. Again the Cutera Excel V Laser easily removes these veins with minimal discomfort and no skin damage.

Cutera Excel V Laser for Diffuse Redness Due to Tiny Veins of the Face

The appearance of rosacea is one of a diffuse redness of the cheeks and chin. The color comes from many tiny red vascular structures at the surface of the skin. By using the Cutera Excel V Laser at the 532-nm setting, the diffuse redness may be drastically reduced, returning normal facial coloration.


Large, bulging blue veins may cause cosmetic concerns and rarely some discomfort. These lie in the fat layer just beneath the skin and are more often seen beneath the eye. Depending on the size, removal may offer the best option. Microphlebectomy removes the vein by making a tiny incision. It is an in-office procedure under local anesthesia. Usually no skin sutures are necessary and healing is quick with no significant scarring.
