Fine red veins are showing in my cheeks, I am 85 years I remember my grandmother having same . Please , What is the best cream to use ?


Fine red capillaries on the cheeks usually requires treatment with a vascular laser rather than creams. We use our Gemini laser or Pulsed dye laser to help treat this problem. These lasers are attracted to the blood in the blood vessels and help to shut them down. Usually a few treatments are required, and the cost of these treatments is partially rebated from medicare.
