The disease most often thought of when one thinks of dilated blood vessels on the face is rosacea. As a rule, creams do a very poor job at eliminating unwanted blood vessels. Metronidazole cream and azelaic acid cream are often tried as a first attempt. Usually one has to resort to lasers to get rid of blood vessels on the face. The lasers most often used are the V beam and Yag lasers. Blood vessels in other locations such as the legs can also be treated with the same lasers. Sclerotherapy can be used on the legs but is not recommended for the face.
