Pulsed Dye Laser Chevy Chase
PDL (Pulsed Dye Laser) was designed to rid patients of benign vascular lesions.
The pulsed dye laser treats rosacea, facial veins, leg veins, scars, red birthmarks such as hemangiomas and port wine stains, poikloderma of civatte (uneven coloring of the neck), venous lakes, and stretch marks.
How Are Capillaries and Vascular Lesions Removed?
The Candela V-Beam laser delivers an intense but gentle burst of yellow light to the skin.
The light is specifically absorbed by the blood vessels in the dermis.
These blood vessels are coagulated and then reabsorbed by the body during the natural healing process.
Some patients may feel a slight discomfort associated with the laser pulse. This feeling is described as the snapping of a rubber band on the skin.
The discomfort is minimized by Candela’s dynamic cooling device.
