Here at Reno Laser Skin Care we know that sometimes our patients just don’t have the time for bruises. These black-and-blue welts can be embarrassing and painful, and can even get in the way of important life events. Luckily, thanks to our fantastic Bruise Reduction Laser treatments, we can now help to fade your bruises quickly so you can get back to enjoying your life to the fullest!
What are bruises?
Bruises are the colorful and often tender marks that show up after you receive an injury that didn’t break the skin. These injuries can sometimes cause your blood vessels to break, allowing blood to collect under the skin. It can take several weeks for your body to break down these bruises on its own, leading to the lingering brown, yellow or even green marks that can make you very self-conscious.
How can the Enhanced Skin Rejuvenation Laser help?
Our bruise reduction treatment uses our Enhanced Skin Rejuvenation laser to deliver pulses of light to the treatment area. This light energy is then absorbed by the bruise, heating it up and causing the blood cells to break up quickly. Your body is then able to absorb these cells much faster than it would normally be able to, resulting in a drastic reduction in recovery time after a bruise.
Who is a good candidate for this treatment?
This treatment works the best on patients who come in 1 to 2 days after the bruise has formed. In addition, because the laser is designed to help break down excessive pigment, our laser is ideal for patients with light to medium skin tones.
How long does this treatment take?
How long do results take to appear?
