The Vbeam is a non-ablative laser that produces an intense but gentle burst of light that selectively destroys the blood vessels of your vascular lesion(s), without damaging the surrounding skin and tissue.
The Vbeam can effectively treat the following skin conditions: rosacea, facial veins, scars, psoriasis, red birthmarks (hemangiomas and port wine stains), angiomas, Poikiloderma of Civatte (uneven coloring of the neck and chest), venous lakes, red stretchmarks and warts. The Vbeam is also a wonderful tool for treatment of wrinkles (skin rejuvenation).
Instructions For Skin Rejuvenation Treatments
Precautions Before Your Laser Treatment
Avoid direct exposure to the sun. A sun screen of SPF 30 or greater should be used for casual sun exposure for several months before and after your treatment, or as long as you plan to continue treatment. Darker melanin or pigment from the sun may produce side effects or make the treatment less effective.
Care Of The Treated Area
The treated area may be pink/red for 4-8 hours after treatment. During this time you may feel a slight stinging sensation (similar to a mild sunburn) in the treatment area. This sensation usually subsides within 4-6 hours; cool packs or cool moist cloths may be applied to the area to reduce this sensation. Depending on the area(s) treated, you may notice some mild swelling which usually dissipates within several days. You can apply make-up or lotion to the treatment area the day after your treatment or when all signs of redness and heat have dissipated from the area.
We recommend that you apply a good moisturizing lotion to the treatment area twice daily for the duration of your treatments and for at least 2-3 months after your last treatment.
