The VBeam laser, often called a vascular laser, is a pulsed dye laser that delivers energy pulses combined with a dye to generate laser beams of various colors. It can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns, including:
- Broken Capillaries
- Vascular Birthmarks
- Port Wine Stains
- and more….
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING THE TREATMENTS?
During VBeam treatment, the color of light used is determined depending on the treatment goal. Different lights are used for treating concerns.
VBeam typically works well on light skin tones and moderately well on olive skin. It is not advised to use on darker skin tones because the transmission of the wavelength is blocked by melanin (pigment) in the pigment-rich skin. Fortunately, we also offer options like peels, microneedling, and other lasers which are ideal for treating darker skin tones. Depending on the area being treated, the procedure may take anywhere from 15 minutes to over an hour.
