The VBeam Perfecta laser is designed to treat redness, rosacea, birthmarks, vascular lesions, scars, face veins, facial, neck, and chest redness without damaging the surrounding tissue and skin surface. The VBeam laser produces1 an intense light that selectively destroys the blood vessels within the area that are causing the unsightly discoloration. Broken capillaries on the face are most often caused by genetics, but sun exposure, spicy foods, alcohol, cold, hot and windy weather can also cause flushing. It is important to determine if this is broken facial capillaries, or if it is external environmental factors that cause temporary redness.
Rosacea2 is a common skin condition that results in spider vein-like blood vessels broken across the face, with an overall general redness on the face. It may also result from adult acne.
The VBeam laser can emit precise waves of energy into each targeted vein. As time passes, the clogged vessel is naturally absorbed by the body and no longer causes the skin to appear red.
Although numerous creams and topical treatments are available that claim to ease the redness, lasers are the most efficient way to treat broken capillaries. Since the VBeam is the most advanced pulsed dye laser currently available on the market, the appearance of broken capillaries can be greatly reduced and in most cases, eradicated. VBeam focuses its energy on the delicate cheek, nose, and chin skin of the face. There are a few treatments necessary to reach optimal results, but results can be seen as soon as the first session.

*Results may vary.
V-Beam lasers are specifically designed to treat vascular issues which cause redness in the skin. Various conditions include rosacea, port-wine stain birthmarks, redness flush and irritation from acne, fresh stretch marks, facial and leg veins (varicose veins), hemangiomas, and angiomas.
The laser works by administering different wavelengths to target unusual pigmentation caused by blood vessels or other discoloration caused by acne.
Skin texture improvements are a secondary effect of V-Beam laser treatments. Specifically, the laser is designed to treat blood vessels, but the laser light also heats the deeper layer of the skin, the dermis. A new and improved skin texture is achieved by stimulating collagen production in the dermis.
V-Beam laser results can be permanent, the longevity of your results depends on lifestyle choices and the condition of your skin. You can discuss any concerns with Dr. Rokhsar.
