Question How to take care of a broken blood vessel

Hello

I've got this broken blood vessel on my lower nose. It's not terribly noticable, but I've had it for as long as I can remember. Is it possible to get this removed? Would I go to a plastic surgeon? And how much would this cost?

Thanks

This is so weird.........I have the same problem you have and on my nose too. Looks like a red dot on my nose- (I call myself rudolph) I would love to have it removed but don't know how- if you find out, let me know

Vera Pulse laser is supposed to be for broken veins. I've had several treatments of Vera Pulse for many broken capillaries around the edges of my nose but they are very resistant and don't seem to go away. If you have just one vein, it may work.

Also, estheticians (or dermatologists) use a small needle that can cauterize a broken vein.

Saramonster - I'm not sure about the cost. I had the Vera Pulse included as part of a series of photofacials. Call a local plastic surgery office and ask them - they could probably give you a price over the phone if you just have one vein.
