VBeam Laser

VBeam Reston

What is VBeam Perfecta? It’s a cosmetic treatment that uses pulsed due laser to treat patients for pigmented lesions, vascular problems, and other similar skin conditions.

Because each pulse from the laser is composed of eight individual micro pulses across the energy spectrum, beams of different colors can be created.

Thus, the laser passes right through the dermis and epidermis, affecting the hemoglobin: the red protein in blood cells.

In general, the VBeam Perfecta can be said to be a cosmetic treatment for reducing redness in individuals.

While the laser can be used to treat many different conditions, from wrinkles to acne, and can help with different pigmentation issues, VBeam has particular usefulness for treating rosacea.

Individuals who use VBeam to treat their rosacea might see improvement as high as 50 percent to 75 percent after just a few treatment sessions.
