V-Beam Laser Skin Treatment For Rosacea

While there is currently no cure for rosacea, there are a number of skin care treatments that can help control the symptoms of this condition and keep your complexion free of any redness or pimples.

What is V-Beam Laser Treatment? V-Beam is a pulse dye laser which is designed to minimize facial redness associated with rosacea. Using an innovative laser technology, V-Beam combines longer pulse durations with cryogen cooling for a safe, less painful and very effective rosacea skin treatment.

How does this skin treatment work? V-Beam laser delivers a short burst of light into the treatment area. This causes any damaged blood vessels to coagulate and be reabsorbed by the body during the healing process, resulting in clearer skin.

How long will the results of this skin care treatment last? Every patient’s skin is different, but typically, V-Beam laser results can last between 6-24 months. Follow-up treatments will be required to maintain the results.

How many V-Beam Treatments will I need? Many patients notice dramatic changes in their skin after A SINGLE TREATMENT, but most require 3-5 sessions to enjoy the full benefits of this rosacea skin treatment.

 

Am I a Candidate For V-Beam Laser Therapy?

V-Beam Laser Therapy is a very versatile skin care treatment and it’s suitable for patients of all skin types. However, this skin care treatment is NOT recommended for patients who:

  • Are currently on Accutane therapy
  • Are pregnant/Breastfeeding
  • Have a history of light triggered seizures
  • Have an active infection or recurrent cold sores in the treatment area
  • Have implanted medical devices (eg. pacemakers, cardioverters)
  • Have a history of photosensitivity
  • Are recently tanned

Before you decide to undergo any cosmetic or rosacea skin treatment, it is IMPERATIVE that you visit a skin care specialist. They will be able to examine your skin, medical history and aesthetic concerns to best determine which procedure is safest for you.
