Laser treatments are a great way to get below the surface of the skin and reveal a gorgeous glow. Vbeam is a classic laser treatment that uses pulsed dye laser (PDL) to treat a plethora of skin conditions. Even better? We’re offering 20% off Vbeam treatments during the month of January. Here’s everything you need to know:
The Vbeam is often referred to as a vascular laser; this is because the laser primarily is used to treat skin issues that relate to blood vessels. These conditions include broken capillaries, rosacea, port wine stains and spider veins. However, this versatile treatment also has the ability to treat other skin conditions as well such as freckles, sunspots, stretch marks, acne scars and psoriasis. Yep, all of it!
Its versatility is part of the reason this laser treatment is so popular. Now that you know what it can treat, it’s time to learn about how it all works.
The “D” in PDL, which stands for dye, is a critical aspect. The dye generates different colors of laser beams that are then generated in pulses. Different colors are used to treat different skin conditions.
To treat conditions like spider veins and port wine stains, the energy of a yellow light is absorbed primarily by blood vessels allowing the laser to selectively damage abnormal blood vessels and spare normal skin tissue.
When targeting dark spots, the Vbeam transmits a different color light that breaks down the pigment leaving it naturally flush out.
Although the use of laser on your skin may sound scary, the PDL treatment isn’t painful. Expect it to feel like the “snap” of an elastic band followed by a warm sensation similar to a sunburn. While some lesions will require more than one treatment spaced 2-8 weeks apart, depending on the condition you’re treating, one session may be enough.
If you’ve ever been curious about laser treatments, now is the time to act. With 20% off Vbeam treatments this January, you can experience the transformative procedure yourself!
