Vbeam Perfecta®: The Gold Standard for Vascular Lasers
It is often referred to as a vascular laser because it is excellent at treating issues related to the body’s network of blood vessels. It can also target superficial pigmentation discolorations and a variety of other concerns.
What can you treat with Vbeam Perfecta?
- Acne Scars
- Facial & Spider Veins
- Leg Veins
- Pigmented Lesions
- Scar Treatment
- Striae (Stretch Marks)
- Vascular Lesions
- Vbeam can also be used to speed up the healing of any post-treatment bruising caused by other cosmetic or surgical procedures.
Who Is It For?
Vbeam works very well on pale skin and moderately well on olive skin. People with darker skin have a greater risk of skin hyperpigmentation after the laser treatment, so they should be tread with caution.
Vbeam is safe and gentle enough to treat vascular abnormalities on infants.
Vbeam is not appropriate for pregnant women or patients who have taken Accutane for the past six months. Certain medications, particularly blood thinners, may increase the risk of side effects, so it is very important to talk to a trusted doctor about your medical history.
What Does The Treatment Feel Like?
Typically, there is mild to no discomfort associated with Vbeam.
The Vbeam has a built-in Integrated Dynamic Cooling Device that sprays a cold (cryogen) mist across the skin, eliminating any discomfort beyond a warm, tingling sensation while the doctor glides it across your skin.
Are There Immediate Site Effects?
The darker your skin, the greater the risk of pigmentation, so tread with caution.
Immediately after treatment, skin feels warm, red, and slightly swollen, similar to having a mild sunburn, which should subside within a few hours to a week. There may also be some mild bruising (purpura) at the treatment site, which usually fades within the first one to two weeks. Also, pigmentation areas may appear darker for up to a week after treatment until new spot-free skin surfaces.
Recommended Course For Optimal Results
Dramatic and permanent results can be achieved with only a single treatment. However, a series of Vbeam treatments may be required for ideal and lasting results depending on the area of concern. Therefore, it is best to consult with a trusted cosmetic doctor who specializes in Vbeam to determine the best course of action.
