Pulsed Light Therapy
Candela Vbeam Pulsed Dye Laser
The Vbeam pulse dye laser by Candela has been a gold standard laser treatment for vascular conditions for decades. This incredibly versatile Vbeam lasers treats a remarkable array of skin conditions, from red and brown discoloration to vascular and pigmented lesions to wrinkles and acne and beyond for dramatic skin rejuvenation.
The Vbeam laser is highly adaptable because it was designed to give the physician a range of energy strengths to precisely control it and deliver the exact amount of laser energy needed to tackle a specific problem. Each pulse of the Vbeam contains eight micro pulses within. This enables the laser energy to be directed through the micro pulses for effective targeting of even the smallest of spider veins.
Treatment with the Vbeam laser is fast, safe, effective and comfortable, thanks to a large spot size and a patented Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD™). The DCD cools the upper layers of the skin using cryogen in the treatment area just milliseconds prior to the laser pulse being emitted. Combined with the Vbeam's advanced micro-pulse technology, the DCD prevents post-treatment bruising and offers patients little to no downtime after treatment.
The full range of conditions the Vbeam laser can treat includes:
- Areas of redness
- Uneven pigmentation
- Sun spots
- Facial and leg veins
- Pigmented lesions
- Port wine stains
- Scars and stretch marks
- Venous lakes
- Benign gynecological vascular lesions
- Other benign cutaneous lesions
Most patients are comfortably seated or lying down during the procedure. Protective eyewear will be put into place to ensure the safety of your eyes in the presence of the laser light. Your doctor will individualize all of the settings on the Vbeam to completely customize the treatment to your particular condition.
