i have unslightly spider veins on my nose, a skin specialist that i saw advised against having laser treatment as i have a dark skin tone (Iam mixed race). He said for people with dark skins laser treatment isnt advisable as the scarring is more visible? Kindly advise.
Spider veins, also known as “telangiectasias” or “sunburst varicosities,” are those small, bothersome veins that appear almost out of nowhere and can be difficult to get rid of.
These spider veins are most famous for developing on the face, around the nose, cheeks, and chin. Facial spider veins can be tricky to remove because facial vein treatments are often limited to Laser Vein Removal, since Sclerotherapy and vein removal surgery can leave permanent scarring.
Laser Vein Removal has become the preferred method of getting rid of spider veins. Facial spider veins in particular were once difficult to treat, but lasers and IPL have made it effortless.
The exact cause of spider veins can be hard to pinpoint, however, spider veins can be triggered by sun damage, hormone changes, pregnancy, hereditary, and rosacea.
You can try the vitamin k cream but its efficacy as a treatment modality for this condition is not established.
