I have really bad veins in my face and wanting to know the best treatment and cost. I have had eczema since I was 3 months old and have a lot of damage from topical steriods. I am hoping I can claim at least some of it on medicare. Any help would be great.
Usually we use a vascular laser such as the Gemini laser or Pulsed dye laser to help to remove facial veins and capillaries. These lasers are attracted specifically to the oxyhaemoglobin in blood, and this specifically heats the vein/capillary to shut them down. The cost is significantly subsidised through medicare and the medicare safety net.
