V Beam

Vbeam is a pulsed dye laser that safely & effectively treats facial redness resulting from dilated or excess blood vessels.

The laser delivers intense yet gentle bursts of light into very targeted areas of the skin. The resulting heat destroys damaged blood vessels while keeping the surrounding healthy skin safe.

Whether you are suffering from rosacea, residual redness, or vascular lesions, they can all be taken care of with a V-beam pulsed dye laser treatment.

How does Vbeam laser work?

The Vbeam Laser uses pulsed dye technology to deliver short bursts of energy into the skin. This energy is then absorbed by blood vessel structures, which causes their damage and eventual removal by the body’s lymphatic system.

What makes the Vbeam laser such a great option for lesions is that the laser pulse can target the oxyhemoglobin in blood vessels, without significantly affecting the surrounding healthy tissues.

Your body absorbs the damaged blood vessels, and your blood flows normally through other, healthier vessels.

What does the Vbeam laser treat?

The Vbeam Laser pulsed dye laser is a versatile device that was designed primarily for the treatment of cosmetic vascular issues, and can also be used for treating vascular lesions. Some of the specific problems that can be treated with this device include:

  • Broken blood vessels
  • Rosacea
  • Residual redness
  • Cherry angiomas
  • Bruising
  • Port wine stains
  • Keloids
  • Hyperpigmentation

What does Vbeam laser feel like?

Treatments with the Vbeam Laser are quick, comfortable, and may feel like a rubber band hitting the skin. The majority of patients don’t require a numbing cream and may return to work immediately after the procedure.

The Vbeam device is equipped with cooling technology that provides a short burst of cold air to the skin moments before the laser beam is delivered, which significantly increases comfort during treatment.

What to expect after Vbeam treatment?

At the end of the treatment, most patients report a sensation similar to a sunburn. There is slight soreness and some patients may experience very slight swelling. This is a natural reaction to the micro-damage in the treatment area, and the body responds immediately with a healing process.

To reduce potentially serious side effects, it’s important to avoid sun exposure for approximately one week after the laser treatment, because your skin’s natural defenses against UV radiation will be temporarily weakened.
