Can you tell me about the use of radiofrequency to rid the nose of a spider vein (no rosacea)? Any downtime?
I have a few broken capillaries/spider vein areas on my nose. Not rosacea. What specific treatments are out there that most dermatologists know?
Multiple options: I don' think that there is a single best way but there are mutiple options including sclerotherapy, ipl, laser, veinwave, veingogh and micro needle radio frequency. The size of the veins and the training and experience of the treating physician usually influence what treatment is recommended. My usual treatment is sclerotherapy or laser for very small veins. You should see a vein specialist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
