What is the VBeam Prima laser?
The VBeam Prima laser is now a permanent fixture here at Dermatology and Skin Health. The treatment is ideal for somebody who is looking to improve the condition of their skin, without the use of invasive surgery that would likely cause downtime from daily routines. The laser is a top-of-the-line tool used in the dermatology industry to safely treat:
- Acne scars
- Age spots
- Facial and spider veins
- Varicose veins
- Striae (stretch marks)
- And other vascular conditions
How does the VBeam Prima laser work?
VBeam Prima laser treatments offer a variety of remedial cures, 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.
The 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.*
What can I expect during treatments?
Treatments are safe and they have been successfully used since the 1980s for the treatment of port-wine stain birthmarks in infants and young children. During treatment, the epidermis is 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.
What can I expect from the results?
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. The permanency of results depends on many factors, like the condition being treated, or lifestyle of the patient. For example, if a patient has sun spots 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.
