Perhaps when you think of traditional laser treatments, you think of an extended recovery period associated with extreme discomfort. At the Sullivan Centre at Columbus Facial Plastics, our professional staff provides laser treatments using VBeam Perfecta to give you a pain-free yet effective way of treating common vein and skin discoloration issues. Now you can treat an array of skin and vein issues without experiencing any discomfort!
What Is VBeam Perfecta?
VBeam Perfecta is a pulsed dye laser treatment system cleared by the FDA to treat over 20 conditions. This state-of-the-art laser allows you to treat conditions such as broken capillaries, benign pigmented lesions, acne scars, port wine stains, psoriasis, leg veins, and hemangiomas with minimal side effects.
How Does VBeam Perfecta Work?
When the light emitted from the laser hits the treatment area, it converts into heat energy, which is absorbed into the vascular lesions or pigmented areas of the dermis. This treatment destroys the abnormal skin cells and blood vessels in the targeted areas, allowing the body to remove all remnants through its natural processes.
What Areas Can Be Treated With VBeam Perfecta?
Depending on the condition, the VBeam laser can treat a variety of conditions on your body, including:
- Facial and nasal telangiectasia
- Leg veins
- Benign pigmented and vascular lesions
- Port wine stains
- Spider and cherry angioma
- Venous flakes
- Non-facial warts
Are VBeam Perfecta Laser Treatments Safe?
VBeam laser treatments are not only safe, but they are also pain-free. Unlike traditional laser treatments, VBeam treats the targeted condition while leaving your skin and surrounding tissue intact. The laser applicator tip uses cooling technology that counters the laser heat by delivering a cooling spray before the laser bursts. This process works as a safety net to ensure that only the targeted blood vessel and skin cells are affected.
What Can I Expect During Treatment?
At Sullivan Centre, your safety and comfort are our utmost priority. We custom calibrate the VBeam laser based on your goals and the condition being treated. The laser performs dual functions. It acts as a dynamic cooling device that cools the area before delivering heat therapy to the treatment area, ensuring a pain-free session.
What Results Can I Expect?
While you may see improvements as early as one-week post-treatment, improvements should continue to take place over several months before you fully realize the results.
Am I a Good Candidate for VBeam Laser Treatments?
VB laser treatment may not be a good treatment for darker pigmented patients. It also works best on vessels that are no deeper than 1.5mm. Deeper vessels may not respond well to this type of laser therapy.
