    Default KTP or Vbeam candela for visible non diffuse permanent vessels?

    I.e. Spider veins

    Tried 3 IPL. Fairly useless.

    Check out my thread called vbeam experience and advice, Its about using short pulse pulsed dye laser *vbeam* it might help you out.

    Ktp seems to be a good laser also when used with the correct pulse duration for its target. Cutera laser company has a ktp laser called the Excel V.

    For spider veins, KTP might be best. I've used vBeam and IPL for diffuse redness. I've a few spider veins too, but they seem to come back with PDL.

    KTP has little downtime and I believe it might be better for pinpointing and elimintating the visible veins.
    I'm recovering from Mirvaso-induced skin damage. Ask me about it if you are too.
