In each practice the treatments vary. In our practice for acne scars we do Profractional laser, Micro laser peel, DOT co2 laser or even a mini face lift to pull the skin and help remove get rid of the deep holes caused by acne.

You could benefit from lasers around your nose to help you with your veins and vasculature that stick out to you. For your scars, I would suggest co2 laser and a multilayered approach.

The treatments for acne scars are different than the treatment of spider veins on the nose.  Acne scars can be treated with different modalities (filler, electrosurgery, laser, punch excision, dermabrasion and so forth) depending on the type and severity of the scars.  I recommend you consult with a board-certified dermatologist experienced in treating acne scars.  Spider veins on the nose can be treated successfully with either electrodessication (electrosurgery) or laser and are fairly routine treatments.  I hope this helps!
