Answer

Pulsed-dye laser treatment has been shown to be effective for the treatment of facial telangiectasia, but this has not been specifically studied in CREST patients. [117] Many treatment modalities have been used with success to treat symptomatic GI telangiectasia (eg, medical treatment with estrogen-progesterone or desmopressin, laser ablation, sclerotherapy).
