The Vbeam is a non ablative laser that is used to treat discolored scars, raised scars, acne scars, active acne, telengectasias (small veins commonly found on the cheeks/nose), rosacea, varicose veins, and pigmented sun spots. The treatment is typically very quick and causes minimal discomfort. Depending on what condition is being treated will depend on the downtime, for conditions that require more aggressive treatments; you may have bruising for a few days post treatment.
How many treatments do I need?
Most conditions require 2-4 treatments.
Can any vein be treated?
Depending on the size and location of the vein, the Vbeam laser may not be the best treatment option. For larger veins we often recommend treatment with sclerotherapy. Our nurse manager will be able to advise you on the best treatment option.
Will I get scabs or scarring?
Although scarring is a risk with any laser it is very unlikely to occur with non ablative lasers such as the Vbeam. This is a risk when using ablative lasers that take the top layer of your skin off.
