Vbeam Laser by Candela: medical rosacea, facial veins, scars, acne, red spot treatments Troy & Novi

The Vbeam® Laser by Candela is one of the best lasers to rid rosacea and almost any spot that can occur on the skin (age spots / sun spots, acne, broken capillaries post acne hyperpigmentation, and even birth marks) and is the world’s best selling pulsed-dye laser. Time and again it proves itself as the safe, easy-to-use tool for the treatment of vascular, pigmented and certain non-pigmented lesions with a low incidence of side effects. There is no down-time at all associated with this laser. The V Beam laser is used to treat the skin lesions made up of small superficial blood vessels in the skin (such as spider veins which frequently occurs on the nose). The laser produces a yellow light which is absorbed by the color red. The light is pulsed- in cycles of “on” for a very short time, then switched off. This results in selective destruction of blood vessels while not affecting the surrounding tissues.

Most of our Troy and Novi patients notice beneficial results immediately following treatment, and often 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 of your specific skin issue.

Vbeam Laser can be used to treat a variety of conditions including:

  • Redness of the face and neck
  • Rosacea
  • Broken capillaries
  • Spider naevi (spider veins), angiomas and haemangiomas, venous lakes
  • Warts
  • Port wine stains and some other birthmarks
  • Sun spots/age spots and freckles
  • Early scars (surgical scars, acne scars, superficial scars due to skin trauma) and red stretch marks

Generally, you will require a consultation to determine whether your condition is suitable for treatment with the Vbeam® laser. The nature of the treatment, likely cosmetic outcome and potential side effects will be explained. You will also receive an estimate as to the number of treatments required and the costs involved. Patients with port wine stains or birthmarks, and some with redness or broken capillaries on the head and neck, may receive a Medicare rebate but unfortunately private health insurances generally exclude laser treatments.

If only a short VBeam laser treatment is required (such as for a spider naevus) then this may be performed at the time of initial consultation. However, for more extensive procedures, a further appointment will generally be arranged.

This laser treatment is safer than traditional methods because of its unique ability to selectively treat the blood vessels of a vascular lesion without adversely affecting the surrounding tissue. Thus, it will eliminate many lesions while leaving the surrounding skin and skin pigment intact. In fact, the laser is so safe and effective that it is recommended for the treatment of infants as young as a few weeks old.
