What To Expect

What to expect during treatment

During your procedure, your eyes will be protected.  You will feel the sensation of heat or a “rubber band” snapping sensation. Cold air may be applied to the skin surface to help decrease the sensation of heat.

What to expect after treatment

After your treatment, you may feel a sensation of heat/sunburn that will subside within a few minutes. You may take Tylenol.  Redness and mild swelling may occur for 24-48 hours.  You may develop some bruising, which may take 3-10 days to resolve. Some bruising can last 2-3 weeks.

Make sure to apply sunscreen daily and protect the treated area from the sun both indoors and outdoors (use a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen). Please be aware UVA rays can penetrate through the windows.  You may use ice packs (20 min. on and 20 min. off) the day of the procedure. It will help to reduce the sensation of heat and will help minimize swelling. Swelling typically peaks at 12-48 hours.

If your treatment is being performed on your face, sleeping with your head slightly elevated at night for the first 2-3 nights will help minimize swelling. Swelling can vary from patient to patient, size, and location of the area being treated.  

Crusting/scabbing may occur (allow to come off naturally, do not try to remove).  If crusting/scabbing occurs, apply topical petroleum jelly until it resolves (typically 5-10 days).

The number of treatments will depend on your skin condition, and how well it responds to treatment. On average 2-3 sessions are needed, and maintenance skincare products may be recommended.
Pulse dye laser treatment is extremely safe. To help protect the skin, a cryogen cooling system is used to spray the surface of the skin with each laser pulse, to improve comfort.
This depends on the individual and the area being treated. We always recommend a consultation with our skin experts prior to initiating treatment.
