blue veins on face

I have  blue veins right along the marionette lines from the corner of the mouth to the lower jaw, can laser remove these or are they too important to destroy?

I have a quite a deep blue vein on left side of my mouth and it is very hard to cover up.  I am sure that the usual treatment I have for thread veins which is very effective cannot be used for this.  Like I said it is quite deep.

Are there any treatments as I really hate it!

Spider veins or telangiectasias are small superficial purple and red blood vessels which are commonly found on the leg and the face. A patient with spider veins in the face will usually choose to have laser therapy rather than sclerotherapy. Laser treatment may cause minor bruising that usually improves within a week. Two to four treatments may be required to achieve your desired result. Laser energy causes your spider veins to coagulate and shrink. It is most effective for small and medium size spider veins. Large spider veins respond poorly and are best treated with sclerotherapy. In sclerotherapy, a sclerosing solution is injected into the vein with a micro-needle and causes the vein to turn white, and then gradually disappear.

I hope this helps. Take care and regards.
