During a PDL treatment, the laser light is absorbed by hemoglobin within red cells in vessels. As this molecule collects the laser energy, the red cells heat up and the undesirable capillaries are eliminated.

Benefits of Pulse Dye Laser Treatments:

  • Reduces redness of the face, neck and chest
  • Reduces veins, dilated capillaries of the face, neck and chest
  • Reduces wrinkles and promotes new collagen synthesis to improve skin tone
  • Reduces acne and warts
  • Reduces red birthmarks
  • Treats mild to moderate psoriasis

What Can I Expect with Pulse Dye Laser Treatments?

Less redness and flushing, with reduction of broken capillaries and veins. Smoother, glowing, more even skin tones which convey a rested, youthful appearance.

Does it Hurt?

A cooling spray is felt microseconds before the laser fires, making anesthetics unnecessary. Many patients may feel a slight sting during the procedure. Ice packs may be used immediately after to quickly alleviate any discomfort.
