The VBeam® Laser is a pulsed dye laser that targets rosacea, facial veins, port wine stains (birthmarks), and facial redness without downtime away from your daily activities.
How Does it Work?
The VBeam delivers a strong, but gentle burst of light into a targeted area where it is absorbed by blood vessels or pigmentation in the skin without damaging the surrounding area. Your laser treatment will be customized according to the condition being treated and your skin type for best results.
What Can I Expect?
Most patients compare the sensation of the laser to a warming or tingling sensation. For your comfort, the laser delivers a cooling mist onto the skin while the pulse is emitted. Patients may experience redness or mild swelling following the treatment. Sometimes, a laser bruise called “purpura” may occur that disappears in about three to five days to uncover your refreshed, healthy glow.
We recommend you avoid sun exposure before and throughout your recovery to maximize results. As always, we encourage patients to wear a daily sun block of SPF 30 or higher even on overcast days. Depending on the condition being treated, additional treatments may be recommended by your laser specialist.
