I’ve had a venous lake on my lip for quite a while (at least 4 years) and have kind of accepted its presence. I’ve almost fooled myself that it is some form of charming beauty spot – because I didn’t think I could do anything about it. Certainly the dermatologist hadn’t mentioned anything.
there’s not much more confronting than taking an extreme close-up of your face
I was recently at the dentist and he asked about the “spot on my lip”. I’m rather accustomed to health professionals freaking out about it – thinking it is a melanoma or similar. But no! He knew what it was and told me how he’d had a lot of success zapping these with laser and showed me some pix of successful treatments.
Was I interested?
Well yes, but assumed he’d be funding his children’s next pony with the cost of treatment. But no! It would only be $450 (hah! only!). I told him I’d get back to him, but I was pretty keen to pull the trigger.
Of course I immediately took to the InformationSuperHighway to research pros, cons, disasters, and learned that some people had success in making them disappear by rubbing daily with castor oil.
So I bought myself a bottle because I’d rather have the $441.05 in my pocket and lasers off my face if I can.
I’ll be massaging in for 5 minutes (which is a lot longer than you’d think) morning and evening for the next, say, month.
Will report back.
