What is the Vbeam Perfecta® laser?

The Vbeam Perfecta® laser system is a flashlamp pulsed dye laser delivering an intense, but gentle burst of rhythmic laser energy at a wavelength of 595nm that passes through the dermis and epidermis skin layers and is absorbed by the oxyhemoglobin in the blood vessels rather than by the surrounding tissue.

The treatment is ideal for somebody who is looking to improve the condition of their skin and are interested in ways to help better the appearance of their skin without the use of invasive surgery that would likely cause downtime from daily routines. The Vbeam Perfecta® laser treatment offers a variety of remedial cures (listed above) from total facial rejuvenation including the reduction and removal of red and brown pigmented lesions with general firming of the skin, to the removal of sun-spot damage. If you have any questions at all about how this technology can benefit you and the overall quality of your skin, we’re here to answer them for you.

Is PDL Treatment safe?

Yes. In fact, treatment is so safe that it has been successfully used since the 1980’s for the treatment of port wine stain birthmarks in infants and young children. During treatment, the epidermis is protected by Candela’s exclusive dynamic cooling method, DCD, which sprays a cooling mist onto the targeted area of skin before each laser pulse, maximizing comfort and protecting the skin during treatment.

Does it hurt?

No anesthetics are required, but they may be used. The feeling most patients report is a warming or tingling sensation during treatment. The skin being treated is additionally protected by Candela’s dynamic cooling method, DCD, which delivers a cooling mist on to the skin before the laser pulse is emitted. This cooling mist increases comfort during treatment, as well as protects the skin to minimize side effects like redness.

How soon will I see results of my treatment?

Most patients notice beneficial results right away, and often times feel a firming or tightening of the treated area. The results of laser therapy vary depending on the condition that is being treated and the number of treatments required for clearance.

Are the treatment results permanent?

Permanency of results depends on many factors, like the condition being treated, or lifestyle of the patient. For example, if a patient has sunspots removed, and continues to spend time in the sun without adequate skin protection, it is likely that the sunspots will return. We’re here to discuss your goals and offer suggestions into making this treatment as long lasting as possible for you.
