VBeam is a pulsed dye laser that treats skin issues related to blood vessels. Whether you have rosacea, spider veins, or port-wine stains, a Vbeam laser is an excellent treatment option. It has been FDA-approved and used to treat these conditions for more than 20 years.
The VBeam laser system produces an intense burst of light that selectively destroys the blood vessels of vascular lesions without damaging any of the surrounding skin and tissue. The laser is tuned to a frequency that your blood vessels can absorb but your skin cannot.

The Vbeam pulsed dye laser delivers a powerful yet gentle burst of energy to precise locations on the skin through several different micro-pulses of yellow light.
You might be a good candidate for VBeam if you have rosacea, birthmarks, or visible blood vessels. Several factors, including your age, the type and severity of the skin discoloration, and the location on your body, can influence the best treatment option.
It is advisable to avoid sun exposure before and during treatment. During this time, you should wear a sunblock with at least SPF 30. Your practitioner will discuss post-treatment care guidelines with you based on the condition treated.
You may notice some swelling and mild redness after V-Beam treatment. There is also the possibility of bruising, which may last between one and two weeks.
Treatment results will depend on the nature and extent of the problem.
Your skin, genetic make-up, lifestyle and personal history are unique. They all contribute to how your skin looks and feels. For most people, maximum results are seen in 3-5 sessions that are usually spaced 4-6 weeks apart. We can develop a treatment plan tailored to your individual needs.
Topical anesthesia is applied before the procedure to minimize discomfort. The treatment can be compared to a rubber band snapping on your skin, with a heat sensation. After the treatment, most patients report feeling like they got too much sun. This usually disappears within 8 hours.
Like any cosmetic service, It depends on your particular condition and how you care for your skin. Once you reach your desired goal, it is important to continue to protect your investment by using good skin care products and supplements. We will give you specific advice based on your needs and goals.
