A: The Vbeam pulsed dye laser system 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.
A: Your skin, genetic make-up, lifestyle and personal history are unique. They all contribute to how your skin looks and feels. For most people, maximum results are seen in 3-5 sessions that are usually spaced 4-6 weeks apart. We can develop a treatment plan tailored to your individual needs.
A: The treated area may be pink/red for 4-8 hours after treatment. You may also feel a slight stinging sensation in the treatment area during this time. Swelling may also occur for 3-5 days. You can apply makeup or lotion to the treatment area immediately post-treatment.
A: Yes! It is safe and effective on delicate skin areas like the neck, chest and hands, in addition to the face. In fact, this laser treatment is so safe it has been used successfully for the treatment of port wine stains in infants and young children.
A: Benefits include a reduction of facial veins, rosacea, red spots, scars, and wrinkles.
A: The laser system also has a dynamic cooling device to help further reduce pain and bruising. The treatment itself can be compared to a rubber band snapping on your skin along with a feeling of mild heat. After the treatment, most patients report tingling sensation similar to having gotten too much sun. This sensation usually disappears after 2-4 hours.
A: You will have some degree of redness and swelling, but it should resolve within a few hours after treatment. The treated areas may appear darker and can bruise for a short period of time. This is normal and will resolve in a few days.
A: Wear sunscreen SPF 30 or higher and avoid direct sun exposure while you are healing for at least 3 months after your last treatment. Further protect yourself by wearing wide-brimmed hats if you expect to be out in the sun.
A: It depends on your particular condition and how you care for your skin. Once your skin is restored, continue to protect it. We will give you specific advice based on your individual needs.
Avoid Sun for 4-6 Weeks Before Treatment: Tan skin cannot be treated as you risk burning the skin. Therefore, please take special care to avoid the sun and tanning beds on the area to be treated for 4-6 weeks before treatment. Wear broad-spectrum sun protection with SPF 30 or higher on any exposed area every day.
