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


laser techniques to treat bruising in NYC, NY

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. Visit for more information about pulsed dye lasers. 

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 at our New York City office, 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. To learn more about Alastin bruise cream, please visit their website.

Sagging Skin

The skin’s underlying structure degrades over time, leading to skin laxity and sagging skin. Collagen, the essential protein in our skin, begins to decline as early as our 20s, leaving skin without support from within. Restoring collagen helps to restore the skin’s youthful vitality.

Wrinkles are a common and unwanted sign of aging. As you age, your body produces less collagen, creating saggy and wrinkly looking skin. Our customized strategies to combat wrinkles include laser resurfacing, dermal fillers, and wrinkle relaxers.

Brown age spots

Age spots and brown spots (also known as sunspots, liver spots, and lentigines) are a consequence of aging and sun exposure. The most effective treatment for eliminating these spots and other skin pigmentation is laser therapy, which usually includes little to no downtime after treatment.
