Pulse Dye Laser 

Minimize redness and rejuvenate your skin by shrinking away small broken blood vessels. The Pulse Dye Laser can effectively treat a variety of conditions including rosacea, small facial veins, cherry angiomas and reddish stretch marks.


The Pulse Dye Laser produces an intense but controlled burst of yellow light. This light is specifically absorbed by blood vessels in the dermis, while the top layer of the skin, the epidermis, is protected during the treatment by a cooling mist emitted before each laser pulse. As the blood vessels are heated, they shrink and are reabsorbed by the body as part of the natural healing process.  Possible side effects may include swelling, redness, and bruising.


Depending on your condition, a series of laser treatments may be appropriate. Consultation with your physician will help ensure that you receive the most optimal treatment plan.
