Somehow I remained oblivious that on the inside of my nose I have quite apparent thread veins until my 3yr old son kept asking "what's that on your face mommy?" Does anyone know anything I can do about this? Don't know how I missed it but now it's all I can see sad

I have one at the bottom of my nostril. My niece kindly pointed it out. smile
Watching with interest.

Get them zapped by a laser - NOT with IPL - either at a SKin clinic, or by a dermatologist.
I had one session and 90 percent have gone.
Cost between 300-600 quid.
2 weeks to fully heal. You need at least 5 days off work then foundation because it burns the skin black and purple
Massively worth it.

Ouch! Thanks for the information though, might need to start saving!

Yup, laser. I got mine done about 3 years ago and they haven't come back. I went to a very experienced dermatologist, who charged for the consultation and then "per zap" required. I can't remember the exact cost, but it was well into the hundreds. And the bruising was dreadful. But it was worth it in the long run.
