EXPERT Q&A

Q: I have small, thin, hairlike red veins around my cheeks. Can I get rid of it with a laser and if so, what is the downtime? Will my skin peel and be very red?

What our experts say:

These are easily treated with Pulsed Dye laser. Typically this requires 3-4 visits. While some lasers don’t produce a lot of bruising, my impression is that the ones that bruise require fewer treatments to get done. I have two different pulse dye lasers and use them frequently. When people have lighter vessels, I use my intense pulsed light to help get rid of them. This is nice because there is usually no bruising.
