DioLite Laser

Do you have red facial veins on your nose or cheeks, ‘cherry’ red moles, or dark freckles that you’d like to fade? If so, the DioLite laser may be the answer.


What is the DioLite Laser? This laser generates an intense beam of light that’s absorbed by the hemoglobin in the red veins as well as the melanin pigment in your freckles. Read more...


What’s it used for? I use the DioLite to treat facial spider veins, like the ones on the side of the nose or cheeks, as well as cherry red moles that look like round red growths on the body. Read more...


What can I expect during the treatment? During the consultation, we’ll discuss which spots you’d like to treat and which ones would respond best to the DioLite. Read more...


Does it hurt? Most patients don’t need numbing, although I sometimes use numbing cream if we’re treating a lot of spots or in very sensitive areas. It feels like a hot pinprick, but only during the treatment.


What will it look like after the treatment? Unlike older lasers, the DioLite will not cause any bruising or purple discoloration. Read more...
