Laser and intense pulsed light (IPL) can be used to treat small spider veins and facial redness. A light beam is pulsed through the skin and onto the veins in order to seal them off and cause them to dissolve. Light-based treatment is generally used only to treat small veins. Treatments may be combined with sclerotherapy. Multiple treatments are usually required.
Possible complications of light based treatments are skin burns, blistering, purpura (bruising), and scarring.
