A few ways: The best way to treat facial spider veins depends on the size of the veins and the experience of the one who is treating. Sclerotherapy actually works very well for facial spider veins but you need to see a very experienced sclerothrapist for treating the tiniest of veins. It is probly safe to say that laser, ipl, and thermocoagulation (all methods of treating veins with heat) is used more often.

Laser: The laser is probably the best way to get rid of spider veins on the face.

Yes, laser for tiny red spider veins; Sclerotherapy for blue and purple veins( the larger ones)

Multiple options: I don't think that there is a single "best" way but there are mutiple options including sclerotherapy, ipl, laser, veinwave, veingogh and micro needle radio frequency. The size of the veins and the training and experience of the treating physician usually influence what treatment is recommended. You should see a vein specialist.
