Pulsed Dye Lazes (PDL) ray passes through the upper most layer of the skin and targets the thin red blood veins in the dermal layer. It works by targeting the blood vessels (veins) in the skin and producing a concentrated yellow light. This yellow light selectively heats and destructs the blood veins in the skin whereas gives no harm to the surrounding tissues. Thus, the vein stains in the skin and other vein-related skin problems are treated with this laser type.


Pulsed dye laser is a non-invasive laser treatment for the several vein and sub-cutaneous first stage lesions and is being used with success.

Besides the treatment of vein related problems in the skin, it is also used for treating many skin diseases as a modern treatment option.
