WHAT IS A PULSED DYE LASER?
Pulsed Dye Lasers deliver an intense but gentle burst of light into selectively targeted areas of the skin. Depending on the condition being treated, the light is absorbed by specific blood vessels or melanin pigmented areas in the dermis. Factors such as the age, color and type of lesions, as well as the location on the body, all determine whether lesions can be removed.
DOES IT HURT?
No, the Vbeam® treatment does not hurt. The feeling most patients report is a warming or tingling sensation during treatment.
IS PDL TREATMENT SAFE?
The treatment is so safe that it has been successfully used since the 1980’s for the treatment of port wine stain birthmarks in infants and young children. The skin being treated is additionally protected by Candela’s dynamic cooling method, DCD, which delivers a cooling mist on to the skin before the laser pulse is emitted. This cooling mist increases comfort during treatment, and also protects the skin.
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF TREATMENT?
Some patients experience redness or mild swelling in the treated area immediately following treatment, this usually goes away in a few hours. Occasionally purpura, a laser bruise, may occur. Purpura is transient and usually disappears in three to five days.
