Can you recommend a doctor who can treat facial veins due to rosacea?
I’ve suffered from acne and rosacea since I was a teenager. Recently, I’ve noticed that the number of thread veins on my face have significantly increased and this is causing me a lot of embarrassment. I’ve read that the Excel-V Laser by Cutera, and the Perfecta Laser by Candela, are the most effective on facial veins. However, the clinics in Singapore that have come up on my web searches seem to use IPL or sclerotherapy in their treatments of facial veins. On your site, I believe the cost was estimated at $250-400 per session. Can you recommend a reputable doctor who can treat my facial veins safely and effectively?
Sorry to hear about your rosecea!
I’m aware that Dr Yanni Xu at The Urban Clinic uses the Cutera Excel-V Laser for rosecea.
Dr Lynn Chiam, a dermatologist at the Skin, Hair and Laser clinic uses the Candela V-Beam Perfecta for rosecea.
I can recommend the both of them. The price range given was just a reference, based on the average costs. Different brands of machines, specialists vs non specialist, years of experience may all account for different costs.
Do note that whatever you read online may not be the BEST treatment for your skin type/condition, and I’d strongly suggest letting the doctor assess your skin/condition, before advising on the best treatment.
