Pulsed Dye Laser Is Gold Standard For Facial Redness

+1

Lasers and IPL work for facial redness by selectively targeting the red color.  A pulsed dye laser emits a wavelength that preferentially targets red and is usually much more effective than other lasers or IPL's for reducing redness.  One of the most commonly used pulsed dye lasers is called the VBeam.
