Also known as spider veins and spider angiomas, facial veins are visible, dilated blood vessels near the skin’s surface. Though generally harmless and painless, they can become irritated – and make one self-conscious. Those who suffer facial veins, nowhere on their body could the condition be more obvious.

Soffer Health, a leader in Least Invasive Techniques – or LIT – procedures, offers a number of procedures to treat facial veins.

The technique treats Venous Reflux Disease, the source of varicose veins.Developed in 1998 and improved over more than a decade, Veinwave reduces or eliminates spider veins and fine thread veins, also known as telangiectasia. FDA cleared, Veinwave works where light-based treatments like lasers may have failed. Relatively painless with no bruising or scarring, patients receive in-office.ClariVein and Veinwave are the latest in pioneering LIT treatments in use at Soffer Health.
