How Does the VBeam Laser Treatment Work?
Many skin issues are the result of swollen or broken blood vessels. During a VBeam treatment, laser energy is used to target the red blood cells in these blood vessels. This energy is delivered in targeted pulses of yellow light.
This heats the blood vessels, causing them to seal. Your body naturally absorbs the damaged tissue over time, and redness and imperfections are improved.
Am I a Good Candidate?
The VBeam laser skin treatment is an ideal option for almost all patients with vascular skin problems like cherry angiomas and port-wine stains. Candidates with medium fair and fair skin tones experience the most benefits. The melanin in patients with darker skin tones can make VBeam improvements less impressive.
As part of your VBeam consultation, you will discuss your particular skin issues with a skincare professional. They will examine your skin, evaluating type and tone. They will also go over your medical history, including current medications, pre-existing conditions, and past procedures.
The skincare expert will go over the details of the treatment process with you, including aftercare steps. They will answer any questions you may have regarding treatment.
The VBeam Laser Treatment Session
VBeam sessions can take anywhere from fifteen minutes to an hour or more. The exact time will change based on the size, number, and location of the skin issues being treated.
During a VBeam treatment, everyone in the room will wear protective goggles. No anesthesia will be necessary, unless the lesion is very large, in which case a topical anesthetic may be applied.
The laser will be calibrated to your skin’s exact specifications. The handpiece will be placed over the targeted area, and then energy pulses will be emitted, causing a tingling feeling. Once all the targeted lesions have been treated, the procedure is complete.
This is the only place I trust
This is the only place I trust. I can’t say enough about the quality of the staff, the environment and the wonderful results. I’ve been going there for years. So grateful to have this as a resource. I live in a rural area half of the year so I know what it’s like not to have services available like this!
VBeam recovery and downtime are quite minimal. Though minor bruising, swelling, or redness are common, they are usually mild and short-lived. Using a cold compress on the affected area can aid in this process, as can keeping your head elevated during sleep for the first night.
Ointments may occasionally be prescribed for recovery. Additionally, it will be important to apply sunscreen and avoid direct sun exposure.
Typically, patients require a series of three to five treatment sessions to achieve optimal results.
The exact VBeam cost per session varies. The price of VBeam sessions will depend on factors like the size and number of lesions being addressed.
