The Vbeam laser represents the gold standard in blood vessel lasers. Its purpose is to treat any skin condition that relates to blood vessels, such as broken capillaries, redness, rosacea, and angiomas. Additionally, it can treat hyperpigmentation, such as liver spots, sunspots and melasma. It is among the most gentle lasers available and can generally be used with no anesthetic and no downtime following the procedure. At the Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center, we are proud to offer the Vbeam laser to any patient in need of its rejuvenating effects. Please read below to find out more or call our office in Los Angeles today to set an appointment.
The V beam laser uses something called micro-pulse technology. This works to heat blood in the underlying blood vessels, as well as the vessel walls. This heating effect narrows the vessels, producing a reduction in redness on the skin’s surface. In order to fully treat this redness, it may be necessary to receive three to five treatments. These are usually delivered at one-month intervals.
In the treatment of brown spots and other hyperpigmentation, the brown pigment actually absorbs the light produced by the Vbeam laser during treatment in our Beverly Hills office. This causes the pigment to break down, giving your skin a brighter, more blemish-free appearance. It is also a great modality for stretch mark removal.
To help you understand if Vbeam is right for you, here is a list of conditions effectively corrected by this groundbreaking laser treatment:
As with any procedure performed at the Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center, your Vbeam laser treatment begins with a thorough consultation. During this time, your patient care coordinator reviews every aspect of your goals and performs an examination to sort out which treatment options will best suit your needs. It is an important part of our practice philosophy that we only deliver procedures that we truly feel will help a patient. Your initial consultation and examination help us get a total understanding of your unique case, allowing us to guide you through the proper cosmetic treatment.
Before your treatment using the Vbeam laser, your practitioner will thoroughly cleanse your skin and apply protective eyewear. Next, the Vbeam laser will be adjusted according to which specific condition you are looking to correct. In this way, your treatment will be completely adjusted to you, giving you the best possible Vbeam laser treatment in our Beverly Hills office.
During treatment, the Vbeam’s cooling system soothes the skin by blowing cool air on the treatment area. In this way, each light pulse is softened to ensure your total comfort. Your practitioner will apply the laser to the applicable treatment area, and go over it as many times as necessary to ensure the best possible results. With each laser burst, your capillaries and blood vessels will shrink, reducing any blemish or discoloration on the treatment area.

Directly after receiving Vbeam, you will feel slight warmth on the treatment area. This will usually diminish within hours following your treatment. Any redness and swelling will resolve within 1-2 days. Your practitioner will recommend a series of guidelines for your post-treatment recovery phase. This may include cool compresses and other soothing treatment to help your skin heal properly.
The Vbeam laser procedure provides minimal downtime, and makeup can be applied immediately after the procedure. You will find that the outermost surface of your skin has been unaffected by Vbeam, allowing you to resume your daily activities instantly. When it comes to laser skin resurfacing, the Vbeam laser offers dramatic results with minimal downtime.
