Post spider veins

I am 41 and have tanned all my life. Had perfect skin still till about 6 months ago a small spider vein has appeared on my nose. the doc says the only was to get rid of it is to have it laser removed for a lot of money. I heard vitamin K can help them go away and bought a creme for spider viens only with no results yet. any one have any suggestions on how to get rid of them easier without having to spent 1000 dollars. thanks

yes, just the one littel one on my nose. It is just in such a noticable place. why it could not have been somewhere where I could hide it. I have been using the vitamin K cream a lot and it might just be working a little. but I am wanting instant results and just cant expect that without the expense that goes with it.

I was just asking because you are about my age and I was wondering if that has anything to do with it. I also have a few of these but had no luck with the vit.K. I think the only thing you can do is the photofacials or laser to remove them. I have done alot of tanning in my younger years and maybe thats what caused these, who knows.

I 've had a spider vein on my cheek lasered and it did not work,the dermatologist said it might need 2 treatments to work,and I didn't bother going back for the second time.It creates a small bruise and small scab,it is exspensive,but I'm sure the treatments they have now are better than 6 years ago when I did mine.Anyway good luck!!!!!!!
