Find out if VBeam laser treatment is the right away to remove rosacea-related redness from your skin.
It’s hard to hide problems when they are right there on your face for the world to see. If you are dealing with redness from rosacea, and it has you embarrassed, it’s time to talk to your Annapolis, MD dermatologist, Dr. Gerald Newman, about a new technology that could improve your skin’s appearance.
What is VBeam?
This dye laser is administered in pulses to treat vascular issues like dilated blood vessels due to rosacea. Sometimes this technology is referred to as a vascular laser because the laser targets the red protein known as hemoglobin that is found within the blood vessels.
Who is a good candidate for this laser skin treatment in Annapolis?
Those who are dealing with skin redness on any part of their face due to rosacea or dilated blood vessels can often benefit from getting VBeam from their Annapolis, MD skin doctor. Besides helping those with rosacea, it can also remove angiomas (small clumps of blood vessels), red birthmarks (also known as port wine stains), warts, scars, bruises and sun damage.
However, this laser treatment isn’t right for everyone. Those who are pregnant, who’ve used Accutane over the last six months or those with a history of cold sores may not be good candidates. However, your Annapolis, MD dermatologist can help you determine which treatment could be ideal for your needs.
What are the benefits of choosing VBeam?
Most patients with rosacea see about a 50 to 75 percent improvement between three to five treatment sessions. Because rosacea is a long-term condition, it’s a good idea to continue getting subsequent treatments about once or twice a year. Other skin conditions, like red birthmarks, may require more treatment sessions.
Are there any side effects?
Bruising tends to be the most common side effect after treatment. You will wear eye protection during your treatment and it’s important that you keep them on to protect your eyes from damage. Other issues like scarring or blistering are extremely rare.
