Re: burst blood vessel

I had a burst blood vessel on mu nose for several years. Not big but Quite ugly-lloking I must say.

The only thing that helps is if you have it 'burn from the inside' with a special kind of laser.

It was gone in a week and healed without a scar or anything.

I can tell where it was now.

You should take care of that sweetie, I know from experience how irritating this these can be!

Have it removed with a laser and nothing else. Its a bit expensive but worth it.

Good luck!

Re: burst blood vessel

no probs And seriously, laser is best even for small blood vessels. No side effects, no scar, no pain.

The only thing that is somewhat unpleasant is the porocedure itself - it is like they puncture your nose with a needle hahah :-)

All other treatments is outdates and risky - possible flaking of skin after the procedure, scarrring or you'll need to go again if some of it is still left.

I was so satsfied with the result I wanted to buy my doc a beer! Ha ha

She is a professor of dermotology though so it depends on the clinic.

It cost me $25 but thats in Bulgaria. In the US I think it is more epxepnsive.

You see, living in a small country has its advantages:

You have access to health professionals easily and its a lot cheaper than in the US!

Cheers!
