    Default yag laser or non brusing vbeam/pulse dye laser for spider veins on nose?

    If bruising vbeam/pdl is regarded as generally better than non bruising treatment, is there much of a difference between non bruising vbeam/pdl and yag laser for difficult to treat spider veins on nose?

    Also would the yag laser be better for deeper veins as it targets skin at deeper level?

    Reason for above questions is that i Had yag laser before but veins on nose came back after a week.

    Default yag laser

    personally I feel that vbeam is safer and more effective. Had yags that did absolutely nothing. Had another with a different doctor and got blisters that turned into scars. Best of luck

    Default Effectiveness

    Hi
    I think that there are lots of variables when it comes to effectiveness. Severity of disease, operator, manufacturer of machine etc. I'm sure somebody on this board can give you even more technical details. I don't know if you've done it yet but search the board for other people's experiences. It seems to me that there haven't been a lot of great success stories with yag only
