Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Nasal telangiectasias, a common condition, can be caused by chronic exposure to ultraviolet light, rosacea, topically applied corticosteroids, or rhinoplasty. Use of the argon laser for 15 to 45 minutes in a continuous mode over the entire involved area can produce considerable lightening of the nasal redness and improvement in the cosmetic appearance, as illustrated in the two cases described in this report.
