Blemish-free skin is one of the universal signs of beauty in the world today. This can make someone very self-conscious if they are dealing with skin issues. Luckily, you no longer have to live with your skin problems thanks to the revolutionary V-beam laser. Whether you are suffering from age spots, rosacea, broken blood vessels, scars, or cherry angiomas, they can all be taken care of with a V-beam pulsed dye laser treatment. This makes it one of the most versatile devices in aesthetic medicine.
The V-beam laser works by delivering quick pulses of laser energy to your problematic skin. These laser pulses are colored using a special dye to increase their effectiveness for a variety of common skin issues. The gentle laser light delivered with V-beam is quickly absorbed by the blood vessels in your skin. The body’s natural healing process will then remove the damaged blood vessels, which will help eliminate your skin issues.
During this treatment, we place the V-beam device directly on your skin. The device will then be activated to deliver the quick pulses of dyed laser energy. You will feel a hot snap on your skin when the device is active, but it should not be too uncomfortable. Once all of your problem areas have been treated, you will be allowed to go home.
Since the V-beam laser does not damage the skin cells around your blood vessels, there are very few side effects associated with this treatment. The treated areas of your skin will have increased redness immediately after your treatment, but your skin will return to normal after just hours.
While you will notice a change in your skin after one V-beam pulsed dye laser procedure, you will likely need to undergo multiple treatment sessions to get the desired results. Most common skin issues can be fixed using a series of treatment sessions.
You should see the final results of your treatment in the months after your first V-beam pulsed dye laser session. You will eventually need to come in for a follow-up appointment. We will examine your results and determine if you need to undergo any maintenance sessions in the future. These sessions will ensure you keep your excellent results for the rest of your life, but they are not needed by some patients.
