broken blood vessels??
Hi Doc,

I have redness on and around my nose which looks like broken capillaries under the skin surface. They are very red and i feel self-conscious about them. I try to cover them with makeup but i wish i could get rid of them!

I''ve heard laser treatment works, but i was wondering if there are any creams that could possibly take them away?

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Regards
Julia

Unfortunately, there are no creams that will make them dissappear. You will have to consult a platic surgeon for laser treatment.

These arteries are formed due to estrogen.
