The pulsed dye laser is a device that produces a bright light that is absorbed by abnormal blood vessels, which are destroyed without damaging the surrounding skin.

A team approach

Should your child's doctor recommend pulsed dye laser treatment for your child's birthmark, you'll meet with a physician at the Vascular Anomalies Center (VAC) at Boston Children's Hospital.

Our team collaborates in the evaluation and management of patients with vascular anomalies. This team approach ensures that your child's treatment plan is carefully developed and coordinated with the expertise of our specialists in vascular anomalies and in other medical areas throughout the hospital.
