Laser therapy is used successfully in dermatology to restore youth and vigor to the skin. A laser treatment called Vbeam is specifically used to target blood vessels that show on the surface of the skin. Find out more about Vbeam, a cosmetic treatment that can be administered by dermatologist Dr. Gerald Newman at Bayside Laser & Skin Care Associates in Annapolis, MD.
What Is Vbeam?
More patients are seeking ways to make their skin look young and vibrant without invasive procedures that require anesthesia and long recovery times. Laser therapy is one viable solution. One of the newest Innovations in dermatology is called the Vbeam. It issues beams of light to blood vessels on the face and other areas of the body. It uses Pulsed Dye Laser (PDL) technology to target the damaged tissue while leaving the healthy skin unbothered.
What Vbeam Treats
To see full results from Vbeam therapy, also called photo rejuvenation, you’ll need to visit your Annapolis, MD dermatologist on two or three occasions for treatments. If you have any of the following issues, the Vbeam may help you get the clearer skin you want:
- Rosacea and facial redness
- Sun damage
- Scars or warts
- Stretch marks
- Dilated or broken blood vessels
- Vascular lesions
The traditional treatments for dilated or damaged blood vessels on the face include sclerotherapy injections and retinoid creams. But these treatments aren’t always very effective, and injections can be painful. With Vbeam you have an increased chance of getting visible results soon after each treatment. It helps tighten and even out the appearance of the skin. You also don’t have to worry about discomfort, burning, or bruising after this procedure. It is important to follow your skin doctor's aftercare instructions closely, including avoiding excessive heat and using prescribed skin products, to ensure the best outcome.
