Early sun exposure, sunburn or other trauma can make little veins become visible just under the skin. They show by the side of the nostrils and on the cheek, nose and chin area. They can be highlighted with the Life Viz 3D camera.

Isolated veins that are easily identifiable are best treated by the NdYAG laser with its small spot size and easy tolerability.

More diffuse redness is better treated by Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) with its bigger treatment head and wider spectrum.

Most red veins need three treatments spaced a few weeks apart. They can appear a bit purple before they heal.
