Is asclera appropriate treatment for spider veins on my face?
I have one small "cluster" on my face, and would like it to disappear. What is the best treatment for this? Would laser spider-vein therapy work better?

I think that Vein Wave or VeinGogh would be the best, but a laser will probably work just as well.

Either may be appropriate for an experienced phlebologist, plastic surgeon or dermatologist. They will give you proper guidance after an in-person evaluation and examination.

There are many ways to treat facial spider veins, including sclerotherapy, topical laser, fine needle radiofrequency ablation, vein wave and VeinGogh. All work well depending on the size of the veins being treated, and all may require multiple treatment sessions. Asclera is a perfectly appropriate treatment for some facial veins.
