What Does Vbeam Laser Treat?

At SkinSmart Dermatology, we use the Vbeam laser on both the face and the body to soften and often eliminate redness from broken capillaries, red spots, stretch marks, port wine stains, and rosacea.

In addition, the Vbeam laser can also treat a variety of other skin conditions, which include:

  • Acne scarring: Vbeam can improve the appearance of acne scars by stimulating collagen production while simultaneously improving your skin’s texture.
  • Broken capillaries: The Vbeam can also remove broken capillaries on the face, specifically around the nose.
  • Hemangiomas: Hemangiomas can cause redness of the skin. The Vbeam can reduce their appearance or remove them completely.
  • Hyperpigmented lesions: Sunspots, freckles, and age spots can be improved with the Vbeam.

Our Sarasota patients enjoy a sense of confidence that comes from the skin that looks beautiful, often without makeup.

Before recommending any treatment, we ask that you have an in-depth cosmetic consultation. Our cosmetic coordinator will thoroughly evaluate your skin to determine which treatment is best suited to your aesthetic goals. We may recommend IPL photo facials, which correct brown spots and uneven pigmentation in addition to redness.

How Does The Vbeam Laser Work?

The Vbeam laser energy is selectively absorbed by the red pigment in the blood, which heats and destroys the associated blood vessels to reduce redness. As a result, the source of the redness becomes much less noticeable and, in many cases, resolves completely.

How Does Vbeam Compare to Other Treatments?

The Vbeam laser is unique in that it offers highly precision targeting that treats specific areas while protecting other areas of the skin. Its precision targeting minimizes the risk of hyperpigmentation in untreated areas of the skin. The Vbeam is also unique in that it can minimize downtime in comparison to other treatments. While some individuals may experience slight redness and swelling, it is mild and resolves quickly.

In addition to the above-mentioned benefits, the Vbeam also offers:

  • Minimal downtime. When compared to other rejuvenation treatments, the Vbeam offers minimal downtime.
  • Is non-invasive. The Vbeam is also a non-invasive procedure that requires no incisions to complete.
  • Is extremely versatile. Because Vbeam can treat a variety of skin complaints, it is one of the most versatile treatments on the market.
  • Safety: The Vbeam is an extremely safe treatment when performed by licensed healthcare professionals.
  • Treatment sessions: The number of treatment sessions can be tailored to your needs and skincare goals.
  • Cost-effective: The Vbeam is also a cost-effective treatment that can also be tailored to suit your budget as well.

Am I A Suitable Candidate for Vbeam Laser Treatment?

Ideal candidates for Vbeam laser treatment are adults who suffer from noticeable symptoms of skin conditions such as rosacea, facial redness, broken capillaries, or acne scarring. Candidates should be able to maintain realistic expectations regarding the results of their treatment and commit to a protective skin regimen after their treatment to achieve optimal results.

If you have an active sunburn, skin infection, or skin cancer, this treatment will not be suitable for you. We recommend anyone who is pregnant or planning to become pregnant to wait until after childbirth to begin their laser treatment.

Will Vbeam Laser Treatments Work for My Skin Type?

Cleared by the FDA, the Vbeam laser treatment is safe and effective for most skin types. While patients with darker skin tones may be at a higher risk for side effects such as hyperpigmentation, these risks are rare, and you may still benefit from treatment. If you are unsure whether or not your skin tone is suitable for the Vbeam laser treatment, schedule a consultation with us today to find out.

Are There Any Side Effects of Vbeam Laser Treatment?

Just like any other laser treatment, the Vbeam laser procedure comes with a few common side effects. While these usually heal naturally within a few days, patients should still be aware of the following side effects that may occur after their treatment:

  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Itchiness

Other risks of Vbeam laser treatment may include:

  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Light discoloration
  • Scarring

If you have any concerns about the side effects mentioned above, please feel free to reach out at 941.308.7546.

How Can Vbeam Laser Treatment Help Acne?

The Vbeam laser treatment works by gently heating up the skin around dark, pigmented spots. While this treatment is effective on other skin conditions, such as rosacea, it is also highly effective at eliminating the appearance of acne and acne scarring.

In a clinical study, results showed that the Vbeam 595 nm laser treatment cleared more than 90% of inflammatory acne lesions in patients. As laser light technology eliminates pigmentation on the skin, it also stimulates collagen, boosting the healing process and resulting in a smoother, clearer, improved complexion for acne patients.

How Many Vbeam Treatments Do I Need?

Vbeam laser treatments are gentle enough that usually, no numbing agent is required. Generally, two or three treatments, spaced four weeks apart, are necessary to obtain optimal results.

What Is Recovery Like?

Patients experience redness and bruising with more intense treatments, and this can last from several days to one week after treatment. Because the surface of the skin is not affected, you can wear makeup to conceal the treated areas.
