The V-Beam Laser uses cutting edge technology to treat a variety of problems. The laser can clear up redness, birthmarks, lesions and spotting on the face, neck, torso and legs. In addition, it can make stretch marks, scars, wrinkles and unsightly veins far less noticeable. The V-beam laser can also remove warts, acne and other growths and has been known to lessen symptoms of rosacea and psoriasis. The laser works by using gentle light to treat blood vessels in problem locations. Unlike surgical incision, this dye laser does not harm the skin around the treated area but focuses directly on the problem. This creates a more comfortable and effective treatment that requires a shorter healing time.
Generally, several treatments performed over a period of months will create the most effective and long-lasting results.
Most patients report little to no pain during treatment, and the results of the treatment begin immediately. Any minor swelling or bruising that may occur should diminish within a few days. For about a week before treatment, patients should avoid medications like aspirin or ibuprofen. This will help lessen such side effects.
