A common location to see broken blood vessels is on the sides of the nose but they may also be seen on the cheeks and chin regions and virtually anywhere on the face. They serve no specific purpose and are simply a sign of increasing age and quite often a sign of rosacea (which is a form of adult acne). The vascular laser targets these dilated vessels resulting in their elimination over a period of 4-6 weeks. Typically one treatment is all that is necessary but larger vessels may require 2-3 treatments to bring about their disappearance. Cost varies according to the area treated, but typically ranges from $300-600 per session.
