Follow up: Pink Capillaries spot on Nose

Hi Dr. Rockoff,

I have a follow up question to the one I asked yesterday about the area of pink capillaries on my nose: "Pink spot of capillaries on tip of nose":

You said it could resolve itself over time, and I'm willing to give it time. 6 weeks ago, a PA-C used a gentle yag and zapped the area (without me knowing he was going to) and it made it slightly redder. 6 weeks later it's calmed some more, but still looks slightly pinker than it did before getting zapped. Is it likely that the gentle yag treatment permanently ceased the healing process and destroyed any chance the area had of resolving itself or did it just slow the process down? In other words, can it still possibly resolve itself even after being treated with the gentle yag?

No, I don't think the laser treatments you had will permanently prevent your skin from healing.  I just suggest not having any more of them for a while.

Best.
