An Expected Side-Effect from Vbeam

The Vbeam is a class leading pulsed dye laser. It has an impressive list of indications, although it has been designed originally for the treatment of vascular lesions like port wine stain birthmarks.

Many practitioners are dubious about the effectiveness of the Vbeam for skin rejuvenation despite the fact that improvements in complexion have consistently been repoted as a side benefit of this treatment.

Below are the before- and after-images of a patient who has received 5 sessions of treatment with the Vbeam for rosacea. Notice the softening of the lines and wrinkles in the eye areas despite the use of external eye protectors (I’d have used internal eye protectors had the primary purpose been for skin rejuvenation of the area).

Yes, Skin Rejuvenation using the vbeam is on our menu; it is a useful option for patients who are keen to avoid treatment downtime.
