Laser treatment: This is a very common condition and it is easily treatable. In my office, I use the diloite laser, 532nm wave length which is ideal to treatspider veins of the face, nose. It is also a great laser to treat pigment spots or small cherry angiomas throughout your body.

Radiofrequency needl: Radiofrequency treatment with a fine needle-like probe causes immediate contraction and fusion of fine nasal spider veins. Topical anesthetic helps alot since the area is sensitive. Results are spectacular. Fine needle sclerotherapy worka as well. Protect the area from the sun ANS avoid alcoholic drinks to reduce recurrence.

A number of things: As dr. Presant said, rf thermocoagulation is a very effective treatment for spider veins on the side of your nose. There is also laser, ipl, bipolar diatherapy, and sclerotherapy. All work well. The problem is that the main reason why you get these spider veins is becoause of sun damage you already have. Unfortunately, that sun damage will make new spider veins appear with time.

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. My usual treatment is sclerotherapy or laser for very small veins. You should see a vein specialist.
