Makeup to Cover Bruises From Pulsed Dye Laser
Hi Amy. Although we do not recommend a specific brand of makeup, we do recommend stage makeup in cases where a patient has to cover bruises. Even when using stage makeup, the bruises can be difficult to cover.
As an alternative to heavy makeup, we actually reverse the bruises 2 days after the initial treatment with the same laser we used to cause them (pulsed dye). In cases where patients cannot have 10 days of bruising, they come in for a second (lower level) treatment that is designed solely to remove the bruising from the first treatment. Ask your physician if he/she knows about this method.
