Spider veins on the face and legs bother millions of people.  Spider veins are unsightly red, bluish or purple veins that can result from sun exposure, use of oral contraception, hormone therapy, the aging process, or heredity. Advanced laser technology offers an effective treatment for facial and spider veins and we now offer treatment with this technology in our office.
