In brief: Not necessarily

There are good laser treatments for many of these.
I would check with a nearby university plastic surgery department--many have clinics dedicated to this problem.

In brief: Laser options

I would seek a dermatologist or laser surgical clinic who offer vascular-type laser treatments.
Sometimes very dramatic reductions are possible.

In brief: Laser

Advances in laser technology have made this a treatable condition with minimal scarring and no surgery especially if instituted earlier in life.
