Can Facial Veins Telangiectasia Be Removed 100%?

Facial Veins Telangiectasia
Thank you for your question. The V-Beam is a good choice provided your skin type will be safe. Otherwise, an Nd Yag will be the next best choice. Permanent removal is unfortunately, very unlikely. Some maintenance is needed in most cases and you may develop more. Be careful not to overuse steroid creams in the future as it can cause permanent thinning of the skin with long term unsupervised treatment. Be certain to be under the supervision of a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon with expertise in laser procedures for the most effective and safe treatments. I hope this helps.
Lasers or IPL Can Remove Facial Veins
Yes, V-Beam (i.e pulsed dye laser) or intense pulsed light (IPL) can often completely or nearly completely remove facial telangiectasias.
However, most cosmetic physicians will not promise this.
