In brief: Can depend...
Depending on the location (face, trunk, extremities) and level (superficial, deep) and degree of symptoms from the "shunting" of blood from the arteries to the veins the treatment can vary.
Thorough imaging (ultrasound, mri, arteriogram) is needed to figure this out. Treatment can involve surgery but more often today relies on injecting chemicals directly into the avm to clog it up.
