I have fine spider veins on my cheeks and around my nose. These are not severe, but I feel compelled to cover my face with make-up as I find them unsightly. In the past I've tried both sclerotherapy and laser treatment. Both caused blistering and scarring which took months to heal, and neither resulted in significant improvement. I'm now considering Veinwave thermocoagulation treatment. The consultant I saw would not test the treatment on my skin, and I've been unable to find any testimonials. Can you offer any advice on the effectiveness of Veinwave, or possible side effects?
