Is a smaller ultrasound used to be able to see tiny spider veins? What if the veins are on my cheeks, can I still have them use an ultrasound?

Ultrasound is only used to visualize veins that are not apparent on the surface. So your smaller spider veins, etc. would not need ultrasound to treat. Ultrasound is simply used to better see the veins. It is not a treatment source.

Ultrasound is not used for tiny veins. If you have tiny veins on your cheeks, I would recommend the "veinwave" procedure.

Ultrasound guided sclerofoam is a procedure done to eliminate the so called tributary branches and peforators. Occasionally is used to eliminate some of the superficial "large" varicosities. The equipment used is an ultrasound machine. These veins are for the most part located at least 0.5-1 cm below the skin level.
Spider veins are superficial and no ultrasound aid is needed. No ultrasound guided procedure is done for the facial spider veins.
