VBeam Laser is effective in treating: Rosacea, Facial Veins, Leg Veins, Red Birth Marks, Angiomas and Poikiloderma (uneven coloring of the neck).
This laser delivers an intense but gentle burst of yellow light to the skin. The light is specifically absorbed by the blood vessels in the dermis. These blood vessels are coagulated and then reabsorbed by the body during the natural healing process. Usually more than one treatment is needed.
The epidermis is protected during the treatment by a dynamic cooling method, DCD, which sprays a cooling mist onto the skin before each laser pulse, increasing the patient’s comfort.
Side effects may include purpura (a laser bruise), redness and swelling in the treated area. These are transient and usually do not last more than a few days. Permanent side effects such as scarring are rare.
It is recommended to avoid sun exposure before and throughout the course of the treatment. A sunblock (SPF 30 or above) should be used. The post-treatment care needed depends on what lesion was treated.
