Spider Veins
Dear Doc,

Could you explain how laser treatment works to remove veins around ones nose. What, if any, are the side affects? And +- cost? Could you recommend anyone in the Western Cape area? I've seen an advert in the local paper - but am not certain how kosher he could be?

Tammi, the laser basically destroys the vein by burning it. If done properly, there are very few side effects. I have no idea who the people in the Western cape are – the best person to ask would be your GP. Good luck.
