What the title says...and has anyone had treatment that works? Mine appeared as a teen...I think too much messing with blackheads in that area. They haven't got worse, but I don't wear make-up apart from a dab of concealer there, wish I didn't have to bother with that even.

I have had both hyfrecation (like cauterization) and laser/IPL treatment. Both worked. I preferred the IPL.

I've had electrolysis and laser. Both are eye wateringly painful and have had mixed results but the veins tend to keep coming back, so I've pretty much given up.

I have had a treatment called Veinwave, offered by many clinics (although make sure you use someone with proper qualifications). It worked well and my thread veins have not reappeared.
