Laser: Today's laser treatment is popular, but this should only be on your physician's recommendation, and your choice. Get with someone who offers treatment -- perhaps several different possible treatments -- and make your decision. And early treatment may not do much to slow down the development of new lesions. Best wishes.

V-beam laser: Facial telangiectasias are usually treated with a v-beam laser. It does not prevent new telangiectasias from forming over time, but it will reduce what you have now. See you dermatologist for advice about your skin.

Pulsed Dye Laser: Pulsed dye laser is an excellent choice for the treatment of facial rosacea or telangiectasias. The treatment is very effective and is not painful. It has very little downtime and is done in the office. This should be combined with sun protection. In my opinion, the syneron/candela v-beam perfecta laser is the best pdl. If not treated, the tiny facial veins become engorged and can fill up.
