    Fraxel has been used as an effective treatment for facial spider veins. These red veins are called hemangiomas, and are caused by both genetics and sun exposure. The laser light is absorbed by the veins more than the surrounding skin, causing damage to the vessel.

    On the Other: General Uses of Fraxel

    Fraxel is generally not used against spider veins, but rather other aging and sun damage effects such as age spots, melasma, small wrinkles and skin discoloration. It can also be used to treat acne scarring.

    Bottom Line

    Although Fraxel has been used to treat spider veins on the face, it is generally not indicated for this purpose, so the best course of action would be to speak to your dermatologist about the best treatment for your problem.
