I also have on my face and neck, brown and red spots and have also have, IPL’s, fractals, and nothing seems to work. I have also used prescription fading cream and they won’t go away. HELP I’m 52 in good health, always wear sunscreen & hats for the last 25 years. thank you

If these vessels really are that resistant that is rare.  In my experience a 532 Diode laser or a Pulse Dye laser works quite well.  If I had a patient that was resistant to this type of treatment, I would consider using a dilute sclerotherapy solution.
