Candela’s Vbeam®

The laser skin rejuvenating and correcting treatment phenomenon

The Candela Vbeam® laser treatment produces phenomenal results for a variety of issues ranging from anti-aging skin rejuvenation to vascular pigment and lesion correction.  The pulsed dye laser features advanced micro pulse technology that targets broken blood vessels and pigmented or damaged areas, which absorb the light and virtually disappear from sight regardless of the size or location of the area treated. 

The Vbeam® is touted as the gold standard of laser procedures due to the wide range of conditions it treats, its 20-year proven track record, and its gentle yet highly effective treatment of:

  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Diffusing redness
  • Pigmented lesions
  • Facial and leg veins
  • Wrinkles
  • Warts
  • Acne
  • Scars and stretch marks
  • Freckles, sun and age spots
  • Psoriasis
  • Port wine stains
  • Hemangioma
  • Venous lakes
  • Angioma
  • Poikiloderma

How it works

The Vbeam® sends a burst of yellow light into the skin where it’s absorbed by hemoglobin in the blood vessels, which then leave the body during the healing process.  Because lasers use selective photothermolysis, the Vbeam® is able to specifically target only the areas that require treatment.  Since the adjacent skin cells and structures remain intact and unaffected, there is a negligible chance of scarring and darkened or lightened spots post-treatment.

Candela designed the Vbeam® with a Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD™) that sprays a fine mist on the area immediately before the laser pulse is emitted to increase comfort, minimize post treatment redness, and protect the skin from laser bruising (purpura) that is possible with some other laser treatments.  The Vbeam® is so gentle that it is used to correct skin pigmentation on even the youngest of patients- infants born with port wine stain birthmarks. 

The Vbeam® laser is a quick, nearly painless laser skin therapy procedure requiring little to no downtime.  For patients who have been waiting for the safest, most effective laser treatment, this may be the right time and the right technique for you.
