What is Pulsed Dye Laser treatment?

Overview ProcedureFees Recovery Practitioner

Vascular lasers are an essential tool for facial rejuvenation by correcting red and brown skin discolouration, eliminating virtually all vascular and pigmented lesions. Pulsed dye lasers emit intense light at a specific wavelength precisely tailored to the absorption characteristics of the targeted tissue. The targeted tissue absorbs the light, transforming it into heat and subsequently destroying it.

Our VasQ pulsed dye laser features advanced micro-pulse technology, multiple hand pieces for treating various spot sizes, and a cooling head for increased comfort. The treatment is virtually pain free and there is no downtime as bruising or swelling is minimal.

We also use the VasQ laser as a standard treatment for patients after facial procedures e.g. , blepharoplasties, facelifts, rhinoplasties and CO2 lasers as it will significantly reduce the amount of bruising and swelling.

Are treatments painful?

Most patients report a sensation similar to mild sunburn after the treatment. During the treatment, skin receives additional protection through the cooling head, which delivers a cooling burst before the laser pulse is delivered. The cooling head increases comfort during treatment and minimizes side effects such as redness.

Is Pulsed Dye Laser (PDL) treatment safe?

Yes, PDL treatments have been used since the 1980s for the treatment of port wine stains in infants and young children. The cooling head goes a long way toward ensuring both the patient’s comfort and the protection of the treated skin. Some patients experience redness immediately after treatment, but it usually goes away in a few hours. Occasionally a laser bruise called purpura may occur; this usually disappears in three to five days.

Are the results permanent?

Permanency depends on several factors, including the condition being treated and the patient’s lifestyle. Sun spots, for example, may return if the patient continues to spend time in the sun without protection. Talk with your practitioner about your goals and expectations for treatment.
