A Few V Beam Bruises are still dark and visible after 7 weeks, is that something to be concerned about?

Bruising and Staining after VBeam treatments
This is tough to answer without pictures. Bruising is variable for patients, but bruising after VBeam generally lasts 7-12 days. With extensive bruising is the possibility of haemosiderin staining which can persist for a longer period, but can be improved with lasers and vitamin C pills/topical. I recommend following up with your Dr. to discuss aftercare. Best, Dr. Emer
This is too long for simple bruising and very likely this is hyperpigmentation. Ask if the dermatologist can check whether this is haemoglobin or melanin by using a Visia scan or colirometer
