From vascular to dermatologic conditions, the Vbeam pulsed dye laser in Tinley Park has become a treatment of choice among patients. It can reduce a wide range of skin pigmentation concerns, such as age spots, freckles, and tattoos. It can also address scars, vascular lesions, birthmarks, and spider veins. The non-invasive approach requires no downtime and has the additional advantage of optimal effectiveness and safety.
What Is the Vbeam Pulsed Dye Laser?
The Vbeam pulsed dye laser is the gold standard for treating vascular lesions. The Vbeam PDL is a non-ablative laser that does not burn, cut, or cause harm to your skin. It is widely favored for its versatility and precision—its highly flexible settings and attachment options allow it to be used on specific blood vessels and pigmentation issues.
Is Vbeam Pulsed Dye Laser Right for Me?
Vbeam is ideal for men and women who want to reduce the appearance of skin issues like visible blood vessels on the face like cherry angiomas (red spots). Patients who want younger and smoother skin without undergoing invasive therapies are also good candidates for Vbeam PDL treatments.
It is important that patients have no active infections at the target sites. The treatment may not be recommended for patients with darker skin tones. Additionally, you may be recommended for other treatments if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
During your consultation, a physical examination of your target areas will be performed. Your medical history will be reviewed to check for any contraindications in order to ascertain your compatibility with the Vbeam pulsed dye laser procedure.
Discuss your motivations and goals so that a personalized treatment plan can be developed to address your specific concerns. Photographs may be taken for before-and-after comparison.
Pulsed dye laser energy is delivered through a handheld device with customizable settings. A numbing agent may first be applied on the skin to ensure minimal discomfort. You will be asked to wear goggles to protect your eyes from the beam of laser light.
During treatment, you may feel a slight cooling sensation, followed by a warming or tingling feeling. Patients usually describe it as being similar to the snapping of a rubber band on the skin. Vbeam treatments only take a few minutes to complete. Depending on your desired outcome, you may be recommended for multiple sessions.
There is no downtime or recovery time associated with Vbeam pulsed dye laser treatments. Redness and slight swelling may be experienced afterwards but should disappear quickly. It is recommended to apply sunscreen regularly and to avoid overexposure to UV radiation. Cold compresses may be applied to diminish discomfort on the treated areas.
How Much Do Vbeam Pulsed Dye Laser Treatments Cost?
The cost of Vbeam pulsed dye laser treatments varies from patient to patient based on their customized treatment plan. The overall price of your Vbeam procedure may be impacted by the size and number of target areas, as well as the total number of sessions required to achieve your skin-rejuvenation goals.
