I have a broken caparallery(don't think i spelled that right) on my nose and it is red and very noticable. I was wondering if anyone knew how to make it less noticable or get rid of completely(which probably isn't possible).

Tracing the capillary with KTP laser, electrocoagulation or coagulation with injecting saline solution (for bigger capillaries). If the capillary is big, it's easier to treat. Small, faint capillaries on the nose are hard to treat. Don't go for IPL or V-beam, you need tracing laser not general irradiation.

Creams cannot shut down a capillary, including vit K or horse chestnut creams. A session with KTP laser should not be more than $500 and if you have only one small capillary, it should not be more than $100 to trace it. Be carefull, cause many dermatologists clearly do NOT know how to operate their lasers so that the treatment is effective. They follow protocols from articles blindly without applying to the case of hand or using their own experience. Find someone that can assure you he/she had shut down capillaries like yours with KTP, theoretical 'knowledge' does not count nor medical titles. A nurse could be more experienced than dermatologist...
