telangiectasia ? ...  [ example on foot ]

It is very difficult to remove the telangiectases of generalised essential telangiectasia. Patients whom are self-conscious may use cover-up cosmetics or self-tanning lotions to hide the telangiectases.

They are usually unresponsive to sclerotherapy. Recently, various vascular lasers (frequency-doubled Nd-YAG, copper bromide and pulse-dye lasers) have shown promise in the treatment of generalised essential telangiectasia.
