EXPERT Q&A

Q: What is a pulse dye laser used to treat? Does it hurt? What can I expect my skin to look like after treatment?

What our experts say:

It’s probably the oldest and most widely used lasers to treat broken blood vessels and scars, or anything that’s red, including stretch marks and rosacea. The only thing I don’t use it for is leg veins. It’s approved to treat that, but I find that it gives unacceptable white spots afterwards. It’s a pretty mild treatment that freezes the skin before the light beam hits it, so it’s pretty comfortable.
