On the nose these superficial veins that run within the skin can appear as red or blue lines ranging from tiny to about 1mm in size. Different sizes of veins respond to different treatments so we offer Laser, endovenouse diathermy and IPL.
The nose is particularly prone to thickened skin where the oil or sebaceous glands enlarge. This gives an uneven thickness to the skin, makes the nose look bigger, the pores bigger and can result in a rhinophyma. Lasering or shaving the nose can make a dramatic difference.
