V-Beam Laser

V-Beam laser uses colored light to correct skin pigmentation. The laser treats broken capillaries, rosacea, port wine stains and spider veins. It also can be used to remove freckles and sun spots. During treatment, the laser creates pulses of colored light that will be absorbed by the targeted area while leaving the surrounding areas unharmed.   During the treatment, the patient wears an eye mask for protection. The laser releases a cooling mist to the skin surface as it heats up the pigmented areas and patients feel a warm tingly sensation.

The V-Beam laser is very gentle and can even be used on an infant. The laser treatment is best for people with fair to medium complexions. Patients that have been on Accutane will need to wait six months after they finish that treatment to undergo this laser procedure.

The cost depends on the size of the area being treated, the number of treatments performed and the area of the country where it takes place. In general, the cost ranges from $300-$1000.

Results are seen within a week or two post because as the skin slowly sheds the old skin, the new and more even-toned skin appears. Depending on the extent of the pigmentation, multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve maximum results. The results of the V-Beam laser are long lasting and, for many patients, the results can be permanent.
