There are many laser devices, and another light-based treatment called IPL, that can get rid of spider veins on the nose. Other techniques include a tiny electric needle that zaps the veins away. A dermatologist or a professional at a laser center or medical spa can help you.
Nasal spider veins can be treated by sclerotherapy or ohmic thermolysis (also known as VeinGogh). Sclerotherapy is the injection of a medication into the vein to cause it to get irritated and close up. Care must be taken when performing sclerotherapy on the face, as many facial veins drain into structures around the brain, and a clot there could be very dangerous. Ohmic Thermolysis (AKA VeinGogh) involves a tiny jolt of energy delivered with a miniscule needle into the vein and surrounding skin. This causes the vein to close. Evaluation by a vein specialist will determine the best course of action for your nasal spider veins.
