Laser and veins
Recently, Hare McCoppin and colleagues reviewed the literature on laser treatment for facial telangiectasias. Laser treatment is very effective for facial telangiectasias, sometimes even after just one treatment session [2,6]. The pulsed dye laser (PDL) is widely used and regarded as safe and effective, with low incidence of pigment changes and scarring. After treatment, purpura may occur as a result of vessel rupture due to microvaporization of erythrocytes . Purpura may last more than 7 days and decrease treatment acceptance.
