Pulsed Dye Laser for Improved Facial Pigmentation

By on January 5, 2018 under Laser Treatments

Issues with the pigmentation of the skin can be due to a condition like rosacea, a port wine stain, scarring, or facial veins. Everyone wants to achieve an even facial complexion, but when the problem is well below the surface of the skin, treatment can be more challenging. Topical creams and superficial treatments aren’t enough, but for a stronger treatment that can affectively target your pigmentation issues, you might consider using a pulsed dye laser.

Who can Benefit from Pulsed Dye Laser Treatment?

Pulsed dye laser treatment has been used to improve the appearance of many different skin conditions. Rosacea can result in redness or flushing of the face, often worsening under certain triggers. More permanent redness like a port wine stain or red scars can fade only when treated by a dermatologist. Small veins in the face can become visible, appearing as red or blue. While these conditions do not necessarily have a cure, treatment from a dermatologist in Farmington Hills can greatly improve the redness they cause, resulting in more even pigmentation. If you suffer from one of these skin conditions, a dermatologist can recommend pulsed dye laser treatment to give you the effective results you’ve been looking for.

How it Works:

Pulsed dye laser treatments involve no anesthesia and can be performed during an outpatient visit. During treatment, the laser is targeted at the area of pigmentation to deliver a strong pulse of light. Some of this energy is then absorbed by the blood vessels to redirect the blood flow to deeper, non-visible veins. This can lead to a dramatic improvement in those common skin conditions you might be experiencing!
