Pulsed Dye Laser

Pulsed Dye Laser

Our Vbeam Perfecta or Vbeam Prima treatments use a Pulsed Dye Laser, also known as vascular lasers, to gently but effectively treat rosacea, spider veins, broken capillaries, warts, stretch marks, and birthmarks. It’s one of the best treatments for red, discolored skin, and it’s so mild, it can be used on babies. A laser wand delivers a concentrated burst of energy to a superficial blood vessel, destroying that blood vessel while leaving the surrounding tissue intact. The body reabsorbs the damaged blood vessel and redirects blood flow to a deeper, less visible vessel.

Our Pulsed Dye Laser services are available at The Institute of Plastic Surgery in Altamonte Springs, Winter Park East, Ormond Beach, and at our New Smyrna Beach locations.

Who is it for?

Vbeam Perfecta and Vbeam Prima is for almost any patient who wants to lessen red discoloration somewhere on their body. It’s even considered safe for lessening facial birthmarks on babies and for general use on patients with dark skin. It’s not recommended for pregnant patients, due to a lack of clinical studies examining the effects on a fetus.

What is treatment like?

There will be a slight “snapping” as the laser enters the skin, but discomfort (and the likelihood of burning) are greatly reduced by the rapid blast of a cooling agent, sprayed prior to each laser firing. You may have slight redness or swelling, but you will be able to return to normal activities and resume wearing makeup immediately after treatment. Be sure to protect your skin with a strong sunscreen, or better yet, avoid the sun throughout your treatment.

What are the results?

The results are a dramatic lightening of red stains on your skin, usually in three sessions or more. Some results may be visible immediately, but it can take up to a month for skin to heal enough to show full results. Results may be permanent, depending on the condition being treated. Often, spider veins and broken capillaries clear completely, but conditions such as rosacea and port wine birthmarks may reoccur and require future treatment.
