Laser Treatments

The pulsed dye laser, which targets hemoglobin in the red blood cells, may be used to remove red bumps, birthmarks, or broken blood vessels in the skin. This can help patients with rosacea, sun damage, telangiectasia, and birthmarks such as port wine stains or infantile hemangiomas.

Laser energy may be used to remove tattoo pigment, which involves several treatments that can be quite effective for tattoos of certain colors.

There are also lasers available which resurface the skin using laser energy, which may help decrease the appearance of acne scars, wrinkles, brown spots, or other signs of sun damage and aging.
