Vbeam uses Pulsed Dye Laser (PDL) technology to deliver an intense but gentle burst of light into targeted areas of the skin.
There it’s absorbed by the blood vessels or melanin pigmented areas, safely treating the condition. Most patients notice results right away, and it’s safe for all skin types.
What Is The Vbeam Treatment Like?
Most patients are reclining or lying down, depending on the area being treated. The laser will be calibrated and parameters set based on the specific condition being treated. Patients often report a warming or tingling sensation during the treatment, although anesthetics are usually not required.
Are The Treatments Painful?
Most patients report a sensation similar to mild sunburn after the treatment. During the treatment, skin receives additional protection through the patented Dynamic Cooling Device™ (DCD™), which delivers a cooling burst of cryogen before the laser pulse is delivered. The DCD increases comfort during treatment and minimizes side effects such as redness.
Is PDL Treatment Safe, And Are There Any Side Effects?
Yes, PDL treatments have been used since the 1980s for the treatment of port wine stains in infants and young children. The DCD goes a long way toward ensuring both the patient’s comfort and the protection of the treated skin.
Some patients experience redness immediately after treatment, but it usually goes away in a few hours. Occasionally a laser bruise called purpura may occur; this usually disappears in three to five days.
Are PDL Treatments Permanent?
Permanency depends on several factors, including the condition being treated and the patient’s lifestyle. Sun spots, for example, may return if the patient continues to spend time in the sun without protection. Talk with your practitioner about your goals and expectation for treatment.
What Precautions Should I Take Before Or After Treatment?
Avoid sun exposure before and throughout treatments; SPF 30 or higher sunblock should be worn daily during this time. Post treatment care varies depending on condition and should be discussed with your practitioner.
Acne Treatment with Vbeam

Vbeam treatments are fast, comfortable, and non-invasive, and an excellent way to treat skin discoloration associated with acne.
How does the VBEAM Work?

It is a laser treatment that employs several types of light waves that trigger natural collagen production deep within the skin, while decreasing the activity of facial oil glands to reduce the number of acne breakouts. Called a “pulsed dye laser,” the Vbeam emits pulses of light to target red pigment in skin without damaging the surrounding tissue.

Vbeam Acne Treatment: What to Expect
The treatment does not involve great discomfort and involves a sensation of a snap against the skin. Prior to each pulse, a spray is emitted to cool the skin for greater patient comfort. For those who are very sensitive, a topical anesthesia can be applied prior to treatment.
After Vbeam Acne Treatment
After your treatment, apply an icepack to limit swelling. It is normal to experience minor swelling and redness, similar to a mild sunburn. You should avoid hot water, vigorous exercise, massage, undergoing a facial, or enjoying a hot tub or sauna for about one week. Avoid sun exposure for two weeks prior and following your treatment. It would not be uncommon to experience swelling and bruising which typically disappears within a week.
