Laser Vein Removal
This is a young patient with spider veins and facial veins along the side of the nose. The patient also has signs that are suggestive of active rosacea, characterized by reddish skin, large pores, and broken blood vessels on the face. The main treatments for these broken blood vessels and nose veins is laser therapy, in which Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian uses a superficial laser to destroy the veins on the side of the nose and on the cheeks. Recovery is minimal and often, more than one session is required to obtain long term management of these tiny nose veins.
