About Facial Veins

  • Superficial facial veins are common around the nose and on the cheeks, especially in fair-skinned people. These are simply broken capillaries or tiny, defunct veins filled with coagulated blood. Risk factors include sun exposure, heavy drinking, and age.

Spider veins rarely indicate more serious health problems but can be treated if you are concerned about their appearance.

I have been going to the Medical Spa for several years and have been enormously pleased with how they've kept up with the latest technology and available treatments. They provide me with the information I need to make good decisions, don't keep me waiting when I arrive and always make sure I am comfortable throughout the procedures. [They] explain what [they are] doing and adjust [their] pace to fit my tolerance, if necessary. I have been quite pleased with the results I've had from the Medical Spa.

Spider Vein Treatment

There are different treatments to treat spider veins. At Alaska Center for Ear, Nose and Throat we offer a range of laser skin treatments. A laser’s highly focused light energy damages unwanted veins, effectively spot-welding them closed. It will typically require more than 1 session to get the results desired. Laser treatments are extremely safe when administered by experienced, trained providers.

If you’d like to learn about spider vein treatment from one of our specialists, request a consultation online or call our office at  (907) 279-8800 to schedule an appointment.
