The Dye VL photofacial uses a selective pulsed light energy that is precisely absorbed by the targeted area, without damaging healthy skin. During treatment, smooth, light pulses ensure that the energy delivered is gentle and effective. Patients may feel the sensation of a thin rubber band “snapping” the skin, but most people feel little discomfort.
The photofacial will improve the appearance of red vascular lesions with the pulsed light selectively heating and closing off the abnormally clustered blood vessels in the lesion to improve their appearance while sparing nearby tissue from injury. In the case of pigmented lesions (age spots, sun spots), which are clusters of melanin that often appear brown, the treatment’s light energy targets the melanin, causing it to fragment. The fragments are then absorbed by the body and naturally eliminated.
Additionally, the Dye VL treatment can be applied using IN-Motion technology to enhance your comfort throughout the treatment. The heat from the “laser” is applied more gradually compared to other treatments, resulting in a noticeably comfortable procedure.
