Vbeam Laser Treatment Santa Monica CA

Vbeam laser treatment is so safe, it was developed to successfully treat port wine stains in infants and young children. In fact, Vbeam laser treatment is essentially the visible light we see that is selectively filtered through a prism for 595 nm of light. The Vbeam Perfecta Laser produces bursts of light that selectively destroy the blood vessels anywhere on the body.

Basically if its red, you can expect that  the Vbeam Perfecta Laser can remove it! 

Vbeam laser treatment is easy: After applying numbing cream, the Vbeam light is applied to the patient’s skin. Vbeam laser treatment is relatively painless and does not require a long healing time. The most common reaction patients experience include just a few hours of mild redness.

Treatment with the Vbeam may consist of multiple treatments, depending upon the condition and needs of the patient’s body. For facial veins, one treatment may be sufficient for clearance (that said, additional treatments are not uncommon). These treatments occur on an average of every 4 weeks depending on the area and type of treatment.
