Bright red spot after crust fell off from Pulsed Dye Laser. How long will this take to go away?

I had pulse dye laser on a broken capilary. After the crust came of the caplary seems gone but now there's bright red spot instead.

IPL Limelight treatment

I would treat the area with a light IPL Limelight treatment to help reduce the redness caused by the laser session.

2-4 weeks to fade post pulse dye laser.

Depends on your skin type, location and sun exposure. Ensure you protect using a high factor SPF sunscreen. It can take several weeks before fading. All the best, Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane. Australia.

Pulsed Dye/Vbeam, Excel V ; combine with clear + brilliant and microneedling

It can take 1-2 weeks to resolve. If it doesn't, I suggest speaking to your physician for skin care and possible other laser treatment.  Best, Dr. Emer.
