Pulsed dye laser therapy for your most stubborn blemishes.
Vbeam Laser Therapy for Greensboro, NC
Certain blemishes can add character to our skin—think freckles, beauty marks, or birthmarks. But as sufferers of hyperpigmentation, vascular lesions, and other stubborn blemishes know all too well, they can be hugely damaging to our confidence. For those who feel constricted by spider veins, port wine stains, and other noticeable lesions that haven’t responded to other treatments, the Vbeam laser is the industry gold-standard treatment you’ve been waiting for.
The Vbeam Perfecta laser uses advanced pulsed dye technology to zap away lesions and blemishes without damaging surrounding skin. If you’re ready for a smooth complexion that frees you to live life as you please, Brassfield Dermatology can help.
Vbeam Laser FAQs
The Vbeam laser has been FDA-cleared to address over 20 types of vascular, pigmented, and even certain non-pigmented blemishes. Learn more about this leading-edge technology here, and reach out to our office with any further questions you may have.
The Vbeam uses pulsed dye laser (PDL) technology to target prominent blemishes caused by vascular (blood vessel) issues or pigmentation (skin cells with a different color to those surrounding them). This technology concentrates a beam of light with a specific wavelength into the blood vessels or pigments that create prominent marks. This light converts to heat within the skin, destroying the offending vessel or pigment while leaving surrounding areas completely unaffected.
The Vbeam laser is most effective in treating conditions such as:
- Red spots
- Spider veins
- Port wine stains
- Certain scars, including acne scars
- Small cherry angiomas
The Vbeam may improve certain dermatologic conditions such as inflammatory acne vulgaris and psoriasis. We can also use it as a skin rejuvenation procedure, tightening the skin and encouraging a youthful, glowing appearance.
Some people report a mild stinging sensation during PDL treatments, which is overwhelmingly well-tolerated. At Brassfield Dermatology, we do everything in our power to minimize your discomfort during any treatment or procedure. If pain is a concern, ask your provider about topical numbing options.
Though the length of treatment time will vary depending on the size of the area being treated, Vbeam sessions are usually very quick, taking only a few minutes at a time. You may require several sessions to achieve your desired results; your dermatologist will provide a timeline for you before your first treatment begins.
How long your results last will depend on the condition being treated. For instance, once a spider vein has collapsed, it will disappear permanently (though other, new spider veins could develop). For skin rejuvenation, your results could last up to 2 years.
Certain lifestyle factors like smoking, sun exposure, and more can also influence results. Before treatment begins, be sure to discuss your goals and expectations with your dermatologist.
No specialized regimen is required after you receive Vbeam treatment; however, we do generally recommend following a gentle daily skincare routine, applying high-quality moisturizer, and using at least 30 SPF sunscreen whenever you leave the house. Our dermatology team is happy to recommend a skincare regimen suited to your skin and goals.
Your skin will be slightly more sensitive than usual after treatment, so make sure not to use any harsh cleansers or serums until any redness and swelling is completely healed. For the next 2 days after treatment, avoid any activities that will heat your skin up, such as saunas, strenuous exercise, and especially hot showers and baths.
