What is the Vbeam® Perfecta Laser?
The Vbeam® Perfecta laser is a pulse dye laser that emits a short burst of light that specifically targets and removes unwanted capillaries and blood vessels and improves red scars. Vbeam® is often used to rejuvenate your skin by removing unwanted blood vessels, broken capillaries and redness on the face, neck & chest. It can improve and may remove vascular birth marks and angiomas as well. Vbeam® Perfecta is frequently used to reduce the redness in acne, surgical and traumatic scars.
How Much Does the Vbeam® Perfecta Laser Cost?
The cost of this laser procedure is dependent on the size and location of the treatment area as well as the condition being treated. Vbeam® Perfecta laser treaments are considered cosmetic and are not covered by insurance. We accept payment by cash and major credit card. More information is available on our financing page.
Am I a Candidate for the Vbeam® Perfecta Laser?
If you have red scars from acne, trauma or previous surgeries and are bothered by their appearance, you could benefit from Vbeam® Perfecta laser treatments. Similarly, if you notice persistent redness, vessels and broken capillaries on your face, neck and chest that you would like to remove or have vascular birthmarks you find unsightly, you would be a candidate for Vbeam® Perfecta laser treatments.
How is the Vbeam® Perfecta Laser Performed?
A typical Vbeam® laser treatment takes 10 minutes to perform. Protective eye shields are used to protect your eyes. No anesthesia is required and most patients tolerate the treatment with minimal discomfort. While improvement may be seen with a single treatment, most conditions require a series of treatments to obtain optimal results.
What is Recovery Like After the Vbeam® Perfecta Laser?
The treated area appears red and a little swollen post treatment (i.e. like a wind burn for facial treatments) and typically resolves within a few hours, though sometimes can last a day or two. Stubborn vessels may require more aggressive treatment that may result in some focal bruising, but this would be discussed with you prior to your treatment. You may apply make-up post treatment and resume your day.
How Long Will My Vbeam® Perfecta Laser Results Last?
The redness in scars can be reduced or removed permanently with the Vbeam® Perfecta laser. The improvement in facial redness, broken capillaries and blood vessels are long lasting. However, as redness, broken capillaries and unwanted blood vessels on the face, neck and chest are often a result of photodamage, genetics and rosacea and these are ongoing processes, additional treatments at some point in the future may be necessary.
