bruising

A bruise is a discolored mark caused by blood from broken capillaries under the skin.

The physicians at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York® have developed a remarkable technique for bruising that occurs post Botox®, injectable fillers, surgery, and traumatic injury. This technique involves the use of a simple and easy method of using the pulsed dye laser with minimal discomfort usually at 48 hours after the injection or injury and sometimes it is performed immediately at the time of the procedure. For those patients undergoing Botox and filler injections in our office, the procedure to improve the bruising is offered at no charge.

what can i expect from treatment?

As the number of laser and other cosmetic procedures continues to increase, so too does the anticipated and unanticipated effects.  This includes postoperative bruising.  Whether after a facelift or filler, or even a traumatic fall, we now have the ability to expedite the clearance of these bruises with the use of the Vbeam Perfecta Pulsed Dye Laser.  In only one treatment, clearance of bruising can be quite dramatic, reducing the risk of experiencing the untoward after effect and possible stigma of these procedures.

In an effort to minimize bruising from cosmetic treatments, we often apply the Cearna Ocumend dressing along with Alastin bruise cream at the time of the injections.
