V-Beam Laser

Living with visible skin abnormalities can be frustrating and really impact your self confidence and quality of life. At Okanagan Skin Care Centre, we offer V-Beam laser treatment, the industry gold standard for treating vascular lesions. 

Ideal For:
  • Acne
  • Pigmented lesions
  • Port wine stains
  • Rosacea
  • Damaged or broken blood vessels and capillaries
  • Spider veins
  • Stretch marks

V-Beam laser treatment has proven itself to be a safe, gentle and effective method of treating vascular malformations and our patients experience results that go beyond an improved physical appearance, living happier, more fulfilling and healthier lives.

V-Beam is a brand of pulsed dye laser which delivers a gentle burst of light into selectively targeted areas of the skin. This light is absorbed directly by the affected blood vessels, causing no damage to your skin. During the natural healing process, your body reabsorbs these heated blood vessels, leaving you with clearer, fresher looking skin.

Duration: V-Beam is a quick, efficient skin treatment procedure with each session lasting only 10-20 minutes depending on the size, location and condition of the area being treated.

Number of treatments: The number of treatments a patient requires varies depending on the condition of their skin and the size of the affected area. Typically, the best results are seen within 1-5 sessions performed at 6 week intervals.

Results: V-Beam laser effects vary depending on the condition of the skin area being treated and the number of treatments required but the majority of our patients notice visible, beneficial results immediately after their first treatment.

V-Beam Laser FAQ

How does V-Beam laser treatment work?

The V-Beam treatment is used for a variety of vascular skin conditions such as rosacea, angiomas and acne as well as for skin rejuvenation. It is a fast and comfortable pulsed-dye laser which targets the damaged blood vessels directly, leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed. It protects your skin before each pulse by using a dynamic cooling device. This cools the upper layers of your skin and provides you with increased comfort during the skin treatment.

Is V-Beam laser painful?

The majority of our patients do not experience any pain during the skin treatment. However, an anaesthetic cream can be applied to the treated area, ensuring maximum comfort.

What can I do to prepare for the V-Beam laser treatment?

Prior to your treatment, it is recommended that you avoid exposure to the sun, especially in the areas that are to be treated. You must also remember to wear sunblock at all times.

What can I expect after the V-Beam laser treatment?

After the procedure, side effects may include bruising, redness and swelling in the treated area. Depending on the severity of your condition and the area treated, these effects generally subside within a few hours to a week after the treatment, leaving you with clearer, firmer and more beautiful skin.
