Vascular lesions and redness from diffuse blood vessels (rosacea, telangiectasias, spider veins, sun damaged skin) can be effectively treated with the Candela VBeam Pulsed Dye Laser.
What is VBEAM/Pulsed Dye Laser?
The Candela VBeam is a Pulsed Dye Laser that delivers an intense but gentle burst of light that selectively targets blood vessels and redness without damaging the surrounding skin. In fact, treatment is so safe that it has been successfully used since the 1980’s for treating birthmarks in infants and young children. During treatment, the epidermis is protected by Candela’s dynamic cooling method, DCD, which sprays a cooling mist onto the targeted area of skin before each laser pulse, maximizing comfort and protecting the skin during treatment.
What is the procedure like during treatment?
Most patients are reclined or lying down depending on the area being treated. Special goggles/eyeshields will be placed to protect your eyes during laser operation. When treatment begins, the laser will be calibrated and parameters will be set based on the specific condition being treated. Generally, treatments are performed once every 4-6 weeks. Some conditions require only a few treatments while others may require multiple treatments for clearance. Treatments usually take from 30 to 60 minutes.*
