How to Get Rid of Spider Veins on the Nose
Spider veins (a small version of vericose veins) are thin blood vessels that can be seen through the skin. They can be red or blue, and they may even cause a throbbing or burning pain. When spider veins appear on your nose, they can very noticeably affect your appearance. There are, however, several procedures that can help you get rid of spider veins on your nose. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, these methods are successful in 80 percent to 90 percent of cases.
Ask your doctor about laser therapy. For more than 20 years, physicians have used lasers to treat spider veins. Lasers work by targeting the hemoglobin in blood vessels and using certain wavelengths of light to destroy them. Laser therapy requires no anesthesia, and it does not damage surrounding tissue. Ask your doctor specifically about intense pulsed light treatment.
Find out about electrodesiccation from a medical expert. Electrodesiccation is a process in which blood vessels are destroyed by an electric current.
Stay away from excessive sun exposure if you have light skin. This can slow the appearance of spider veins.
