Lasers are a quick and effective treatment of vascular, pigmented and cutaneous lesions. A pen-like handpiece to direct a beam of laser light to the lesion. Some patients report feeling a rubber band snap or pin prick sensation during treatment. What should a patient expect after treatment? Some redness may occur in the treatment area immediately following treatment; however, it should subside within several hours. Some swelling may also be experienced and will go away in 1-2 days.
Postoperative care is minimal. Auaphor or any healing ointment may be used to help the healing process and refraining from sunlight may be suggested during the healing process. Final treatment results should be evident 10-14 days after treatment for vascular lesions and within 2-3 weeks after treatment for pigmented lesions.
