Vbeam for Pigmentation
Reduce redness for a clear, even complexion.
Vbeam is a pulsed dye laser, which means that the energy from the laser is delivered in pulses and a dye is used to generate laser beams of different colours. Vbeam’s light energy targets hemoglobin, the red protein in blood cells in the blood vessels thus reducing redness in the treated area. Since Vbeam is used to treat dilated blood vessels it is sometimes referred to as a vascular laser.
Tired of hiding your red spots? Rosacea, red spots (also known as cherry angiomas), spider veins, broken blood vessels, port wine stains, birth marks, vascular lesions, and even certain scars are all conditions which can be treated with Vbeam.*
A treatment generally takes 10 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.
Most clients describe the sensation of similar to the light snap of an elastic band against the skin during treatment. To minimize discomfort, Vbeam has a special Dynamic Cooling Device, which delivers a cold spray to the skin just before the laser pulse is emitted There is no downtime following treatment.
The cost of a treatment with Vbeam starts at about $165 per treatment, depending on the area treated, with special financing available.
Results generally appear a few days following treatment and improve with each treatment. Patients with facial redness and blood vessels will typically require an average of 2-3 treatments. Patients with port-wine stains may need 6-10 treatments to lighten a port-wine stain. Patients being treated for scarring may need up to 6 treatments.
A consultation with one of our highly trained laser technicians is free. We get to understand your skin type, discuss your goals, and decide on a treatment plan together.
This depends on the condition being treated and client lifestyle. Certain clients react very well to treatment and have a quick and permanent reduction of their condition. Some areas are more resistant to treatment and can have the condition come back after a period of weeks or months, though generally in a reduced fashion. Our experienced technicians, or dermatologists in certain cases, can best assess your condition and share their experience with you.
We’ll discuss your goals and create a treatment plan together.
