Vascular lesions are notoriously difficult to treat—those broken capillaries, rosacea, facial veins, port wine stains, and stretch marks can appear anywhere on the body and often get worse with age. Traditional vein removal is painful, invasive, expensive, and it doesn’t always work. This is where the new V-Beam Laser Skin Treatment comes in. An innovative device that effectively helps diminish the appearance of vein-related skin ailments, V-Beam is specially designed to minimize the potential for the post-treatment bruising, blistering, and discoloration often associated with other lasers.
The VBeam Laser Skin Treatment is a type of laser skin rejuvenationthat uses an advanced laser to maximize results and minimize side effects. The VBeam is a 595 nm pulsed dye laser, which means that it can deliver longer, gentler, and deeper laser wavelengths to the skin. The energy from the VBeam laser passes through the skin and is absorbed by the pigmentation of the blood vessels. These pulsed wavelengths can easily identify darker and denser blood vessels that cause discoloration while avoiding normal functioning blood vessels.
VBeam’s Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD) was formulated to keep the skin from overheating during treatment. It delivers a spray of cool air to protect the epidermis and maintain an even temperature throughout the skin. An even temperature will yield more predictable results with less side effects like bruising and discoloration.
Most patients see a dramatic improvement in their port wine stains, stretch marks, varicose veins, and other vascular lesions after the initial VBeam Laser Skin Treatment. Minor lesions may only require one to two treatments while major discolorations will take four to five total treatments. A private consultation with a skincare specialist will help you learn more about how many treatments you may need.
On the day of your VBeam Laser Skin Treatment, you should enter the skincare facility with a clean, makeup-free face. Makeup can sometimes absorb laser energy, wasting those valuable pulses on your foundation instead of the underlying blood vessels. Plus, makeup can make it harder for the esthetician to locate the blood vessels. It’s also recommended that any excess facial hair be removed prior to treatment due to laser’s natural attraction to external pigmentation.
The esthetician will move the VBeam Laser Skin Treatment device over your skin. Depending on the extent of your roseacea, acne scarring, or broken capillaries, your treatment may last from a few minutes to an hour. Remember to point out areas of concern to the esthetician so that he or she may focus the VBeam on them.
Although most patients do not consider the VBeam Laser Skin Treatment painful, the sensation from the laser pulses can be compared to being snapped with a rubber band. If you are concerned about your pain tolerance to the VBeam Laser Skin Treatment, take a small dose of aspirin or ibuprofen before treatment.
Like all lasers, the VBeam Laser Skin Treatment may cause minor bruising or discoloration at the treatment site. However, the likelihood for these side effects is significantly lowered thanks to the Dynamic Cooling Device. Immediately after being treated with the VBeam, it is normal to experience temporary redness.
The VBeam Laser Skin Treatment may eliminate vascular lesions permanently in some people, and semi-permanently in others. Patients who find their lesions coming back may choose to come back for occasional VBeam treatments to keep the blood vessels at bay.
