The Vbeam is a Candela laser that uses Pulsed Dye Laser (PDL) technology to treat unwanted vessels and redness of the face, neck, and chest. It also treats bright red spots (cherry angiomas) and red scars. Spider veins on the legs do not typically respond with this treatment.
Is it painful?
The Vbeam laser has a cooling system which sprays the skin before each pulse to minimize pain. After the treatment, the skin can feel like a mild sunburn for some patients.
How long does it take?
Depending on the treatment area, laser treatments may last anywhere from 5 minutes to 20 minutes.
How do I prepare for the treatment?
To optimize results, avoid getting a tan or sunburn prior to your treatment. Sun protection is recommended before and after all laser treatments.
