The most common cause is genetic factors, but other factors such as sun damage can also be a cause. These symptoms can come and go, however, if not treated can worsen overtime.  Even though this skin condition cannot be cured, the Vbeam Pulsed Dye Laser is the most advanced and successful technology in managing symptoms caused by Rosacea.

Effectively treat:

  • Redness or Diffuse redness
  • Facial veins (telangiectasia)

How does it work?

The Vbeam Perfecta system uses Pulsed Dye Laser (PDL) technology to deliver a powerful but gentle burst of light into targeted areas of the skin. It is then absorbed by the blood vessels or melanin pigmented areas, removing the targeted imperfections. This treatment is clinically proven to be effective for multiple skin types and most patients notice the results right away.

The Pulse Dye Laser technology offered by VBeam is a globally renowned vascular treatment for hemangioma. Dr. Rox Anderson has created this vascular laser in a research center located at Harvard University with the intention of treating benign venous tumors, which have previously been difficult to treat.

The VBeam laser also treats other vascular lesions, such as rubis angiomas (cherry angioma) and spider angioma, which shows up on the skin as small red dots or spider legs.

FAQs

Are the treatments painful

Most patients report a sensation similar to mild sunburn after the treatment. During the treatment, skin will receive additional protection through the Dynamic Cooling Device cooling system (DCDTM), which delivers a cooling burst of cryogen before the laser pulse. The DCD cooling increases comfort during treatment and minimizes side effects such as redness.

Are there any side effects? 

PDL treatments have been used since the 1980s for the treatment of port wine stains in infants and young children. The DCD cooling goes a long way toward ensuring both the patient’s comfort and the protection of the treated skin. Some patients experience redness immediately after treatment, which usually goes away in a few hours. Occasionally a laser bruise called purpura may occur; this usually disappears in three to five days.
