Anyone had it done? Does it work? How long off exercise?

Just that really

Yes - I've had it done several times. Tried three different methods - first was injections, second was laser and third was electrolysis.

They all work, but for me, it's temporary. Either they come back or new ones form.

Not sure I ever had to stop exercising!

I found stopping drinking got rid of mine. I did get some small ones lazered once and as far as I'm aware that was permanent. Cant see them now anyway

BIWI By a process of logic your thread veins reappearance is down to too much exercise and gin!! grin

I had some two years ago, i though it was from the hot summer and was looking for a way to make them disappear. But i got pregnant and forgot about them and they were gone in few months, not having any at the moment, i do not drink much, only occasionally.

Well, I'm prepared to cut down on the exercise wink

I had one under my eye and one on side of my nose, got them both lazered.It was about 10 years ago and they have'nt reappeared.

Proved my point. Too much gin makes you see double! grin

BIWI Sat 01-Mar-14 21:56:35

I had mine done with electrolysis about 8 years ago. They did go, but new ones formed eventually.

I gave up drinking 2 months ago and I can't really see mine anymore, so would def recommend staying off the pop!

Laser treatment on my cheeks worked really well but have got new ones now 3 years later but will have treated again.

I've had them lasered but found as a lovely bonus that using an AHA made them reappear as if by horrible magic
step away from the AHA if this is your trouble ime
