Pigmented lesions on the face, neck, chest, hands, legs and feet can negatively impact your self-image and feelings of confidence. Vascular birthmarks, such as port-wine stains or hemangiomas, rosacea and broken capillaries can lead to undesired redness and superficial markings. Candela Vbeam® laser therapy can treat unwanted lesions and redness to create a smoother, more even complexion.
The professional cosmetic team at Aesthetic Plastic Surgery is known for offering skin rejuvenation options for patients with all kinds of different concerns. In addition to Vbeam® laser therapy for pigmented lesions, our medical spa offers a full range of nonsurgical treatments to help improve your appearance and leave you feeling refreshed.
If you’d like to learn more about whether Vbeam® laser therapy is right for you, please call 541-687-8900 or contact our office in Eugene today for more details. We offer free consultations for our cosmetic surgery and medical spa patients.
The first step in achieving your desired results with Vbeam® laser therapy is scheduling a consultation with one of our trained aestheticians. During your consultation, our aesthetician will examine your skin and discuss the results you can expect to see from Vbeam® therapy. This is also the ideal time to inquire about the procedural details, as well as ask about any additional treatments you may be interested in.
Candidates for Vbeam® laser therapy may have:
Dilated blood vessels on the face, nose, cheeks or chin
Angiomas (benign blood vessel growths)
Facial redness and other discolorations may prevent individuals from going outside without makeup or may lend your complexion the appearance of being sunburned or embarrassed. By treating facial redness and vascular lesions with laser therapy, you can enjoy a more even skin tone without the application of concealers or other types of makeup.
Vbeam® treatments use a pulsed-dye laser that is effective in the treatment of redness, pigmented lesions and some non-pigmented lesions, creating a more even complexion. Such discolorations and unwanted marks can result from sun damage or genetics, while others may simply be birthmarks. Although most commonly used on the face and hands, Vbeam® treatments can also be applied to the neck, chest, legs and feet.
The Vbeam® laser delivers an intense but gentle burst of light into selectively targeted areas of the skin. The light is absorbed by specific red or brown patches, such as blood vessels or melanin-pigmented areas in the dermis, depending on the condition being treated.
The skin is cooled immediately prior to each laser pulse during Vbeam® treatment in order to maximize comfort during the procedure. The laser pulse itself can be described as a sensation similar to a rubber band snap. Patients may experience mild temporary discomfort during treatment, but typically, no anesthesia should be required.
Immediately after a Vbeam® laser session, the treated skin may be sensitive, pink or swollen. Depending on the type of lesion treated, you may experience some degree of temporary bruising. Any irritation should fade quickly and you should be able to immediately notice your results. There is no downtime required after a Vbeam® treatment, so you can resume your normal schedule as soon as your procedure is complete.
For many patients, a single Vbeam® treatment is often enough to achieve the desired results, while those with more severe redness or pronounced lesions may require up to four treatments. Avoiding direct sun exposure and practicing proper skincare can help you develop optimal results with minimal adverse affects.
