Question:

Do the veins reappear after laser treatment? How long is the laser effective?

Answer:

Facial capillaries or veins can reappear after treatment, as the underlying problem, rosacea, cannot be cured. Laser does however induce a long-lived reduction in the appearance of facial vessels, and facial redness. 

In most cases, we recommend an initial series of 3 treatments spaced a month apart, and then maintenance sessions as required. The Gemini laser and the Pulsed dye laser are vascular lasers that are used in this situation.
