Blood Vessels, Flushing, and Red Birth Marks
V Beam Laser
People often think about what they can do to improve the appearance of their skin. With time their skin may develop different coloring, particularly red, and patients may not realize that this can be corrected. The VBeam Perfecta pulsed dye laser, is excellent for anyone who has an area or a spot that is red, which is due to blood. Broken blood vessels on the cheeks, nose, and chin are also excellent candidates for VBeam treatment. Red spots people develop on the trunk of the body, known as cherry angiomas, are also terrific candidates. Additionally, red scars, spider angiomas, mottling of the neck, and red stretch marks are good candidates for VBeam. If it is red, it likely can be treated. In addition, thick scars can be terrific candidates for flattening, remodeling, or softening with the VBeam. The Vbeam works by selectively heating only the most superficial blood vessels in the skin and causing them to disappear. The yellow laser light produced by the device only heats blood and does not heat the rest of the skin. As a result, bruising can sometimes occur, but this is not permanent and bruising will likely mean a better result. However, bruising is not always necessary for terrific results. It is not very painful, and it does not require numbing creams prior to the treatment.
