Vascular lesions commonly sprout on the face and legs, but it’s possible to get rid of these pesky spots with the quick and simple Vbeam laser treatment. Vbeam is considered the gold standard for treating vascular and pigmented lesions. But how can the Vbeam laser help reduce the appearance of vascular lesions and leg veins?
The Vbeam laser is a pulsed dye laser, so the energy is delivered in pulses, and a dye is used to generate laser beams of diverse colors. The color of the laser beam produced, depends on the condition being treated.
It typically takes a series of 3-5 Vbeam treatments to create an improvement in the appearance of the vascular lesions.
How can the Vbeam laser help to reduce vascular lesions and leg veins?
The Vbeam laser can be used to treat a wide range of vascular and pigmented lesions including spider veins, broken capillaries, rosacea, and angiomas (read more).
When treating vascular lesions, the laser targets the hemoglobin, which is the protein in the redblood vessels. The hemoglobin absorbs the laser energy, and it is then naturally removed by the skin. The laser energy does not affect the surrounding tissue.
Is it painful?
Patients who undergo the Vbeam laser treatment can expect to experience mild discomfort. Most patients feel some warmth, as well as a tingling sensation as the laser is passed over the skin.
