Pulsed dye laser skin treatments at our Orlando-area practice treat skin conditions ranging from facial veins and rosacea to port wine stains in a matter of minutes with little to no downtime. Our Candela™ pulsed dye laser corrects skin discoloration using a concentrated beam of light that targets blood vessels in the skin. The light converts into heat, destroying the blood vessel while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.

Ask Dr. Gross or Eileen if a pulsed dye laser treatment best serves your needs. He or she may recommend an alternative treatment with either the Cynosure Icon® or YAG laser systems depending on your concerns.
Eileen is a certified physician assistant who has been practicing since 2011. She specializes in performing injectable and laser skin treatments, and creating personalized skin care regimens.
The pulsed dye laser's versatility is almost unmatched when it comes to treating skin conditions. From correcting red and brown skin discoloration to eliminating virtually all vascular and pigmented lesions, the pulsed dye laser is a safe and extremely effective procedure. It features advanced micropulse technology, multiple handpieces for treating various spot sizes, and a patented Dynamic Cooling Device™ system, which reduces downtime by minimizing discomfort, purpura (post-treatment rash), and bruising.
This laser can be used for all ages and most skin types. You feel a slight warmth during the procedure, but an intermittent spray cools your skin to ensure your comfort.
While the number of treatments required for your desired results depends on a number of factors such as the condition being treated and the size of the treatment area, each pulsed dye laser treatment at our Orlando-area practice typically costs $450.
Pulsed dye laser treatments don't require anesthesia or injections. Treatments can be as short as a few minutes, depending on the size of the treated area, and most patients can return to work the same day.
Side effects are generally minimal and include temporary bruising and pigmentary changes. Before treatment, we recommend that you wear sunblock consistently for 1 month, as tanned skin blocks the laser light and results in a higher chance of side effects. Scarring is extremely rare with this laser.
Patients should avoid sun exposure for 2 weeks following their treatment. Moisturizer applied 2 to 3 times per day protects the skin and speeds healing. Sun protection also helps minimize the chance of pigmentary changes. Patients can wear makeup starting on day 2. If any crust forms, patients should not pick at it or try to remove it. Any bruising should fade relatively quickly over a 3- to 10-day period.
"This laser combines 'cool touch technology' with yellow light, which is very safe and prevents damage to surrounding tissue."
