When considering laser skin treatments, sometimes it is difficult to know where to begin your research. Not only are there thousands of doctors to sift through, there are also many different kinds of lasers that offer different benefits and come with various drawbacks. It is important that you do your research before setting up an appointment so that you receive the treatment that is best for you. The VBeam is a brand of PDL, or Pulsed Dye Laser. What that means is that the laser sends out energy in pulses instead of delivering a concentrated beam. The laser also uses a dye to generate different colors of light. These less harsh beams of light are absorbed by the skin’s blood vessels. This causes the blood vessels to coagulate, starting up the healing process. When the body tries to heal the coagulated vessels, it also heals the skin issues being treated.
What Do They Treat?
VBeam lasers can treat a variety of ailments. If you have a bulging vein on your forehead, VBeam can help with that. If the skin on your face, neck, or chest is red, VBeam can even out your skin tone. Scars, acne scars, or keloids can be almost completely eliminated with the VBeam. Cherry angiomas, brown spots, birthmarks, stretch marks, and warts can all be treated with the VBeam laser.
Who Is the Ideal Candidate?
Anyone suffering from one of the afflictions listed above can benefit from treatment with the VBeam laser. There are a few individuals who should not undergo VBeam treatment however. Pregnant
women, individuals currently taking Accutane, and people who have had many cold sores should avoid this treatment. If you fall into one of these categories and want to have the VBeam laser treatment, consult your doctor to find out what your next move should be.
