May or May Not Be Bruised
Too early to tell....read more.
I ALWAYS tell patients that 3-4 treatments are needed for optimal outcomes, and the first treatment is ALWAYS conservative. Once patients are comfortable with the treatment and know what to expect, I decrease the pulse duration and push up the power- this results in bruising, and better outcomes. You are indeed correct that prupura or bruising is the desired outcome, however you are exception to the rule as you are well versed in this desired end result. Not everyone is as well read as yourself.
If you are comfortable with bruising- go for it..... this will improve your scar. Tell your specialist that you know what to expect and they will use the optimal parameters.
All the best,

Pulsed Dye Laser and Bruising
The V-Beam is the gold standard for redness and rosacea. The old pulsed dye lasers left everyone bruised. The benefit of the newer lasers is that you can accomplish the same results with little or no bruising.
It usually takes several treatments to get the best results.
