The Vbeam pulse dye laser is a workhorse at the Center for Dermatology. This laser is designed to specially target and treat the structures that make red and brown spots to even out your skin tone.
We can treat a variety of skin conditions with the Vbeam. These skin conditions include sun spots, facial redness, and vascular birthmarks.
Spots of hyperpigmentation may be caused by sun exposure, Addison’s disease, pregnancy, age, heredity, and other factors that increase the production of melanin.
We tend to call most brown spots “age spots” due to the fact that areas of hyperpigmentation become more evident as we grow older. In fact, most of the spots that develop are seen on areas of the skin that are regularly exposed to the sun.
The team at Center For Dermatology Cosmetic And Laser Surgery offers the safe, effective treatment of pigment spots using proven laser therapy. In each session, a focused beam of light is applied to areas of pigmentation, effectively destroying the abnormal melanocytes in the skin. With several sessions of laser therapy, the melanin is gradually diminished until spots disappear, revealing healthy, beautiful skin.
There are many treatment options available. Most patients with mild to moderate rosacea may benefit from topical therapies. This can provide dramatic improvement in rosacea papules and pustules. Patients dealing with more redness and visible blood vessels may be greatly improved with new topical medication that constricts the blood vessels. For a more permanent cure, laser therapy such as the Vbeamcan be extremely effective
These are caused by clusters of tiny vessels near the surface. Blood showing through the skin creates reddish or pinkish areas. Some of the most common vascular birthmarks include:
Port wine stains – These marks are usually seen on the face and tend to increase in size as a child grows. The color is similar to that of red wine; hence the name.
Hemangiomas – These usually develop after birth and may increase in size for about a year. On the surface of the skin, they form a raised, red area. Deeper hemangiomas cause a bulge in the skin and usually appear purplish in color. Most hemangiomas flatten by the time a child reaches age ten, but a mark may remain
Salmon patches – The most common type of birthmark, these are flat and may be pink, red, or salmon in color.

Acne may lead to significant scarring. Scars can vary in size and appearance. Some scars are shallow, while ice pick scars are deep and narrow. Patients with darker skin might notice color changes around the scars, while fair-skinned patients may develop redness.
Some situations may make acne scars even worse, including picking, squeezing pimples, and sun exposure. Instead, patients should avoid manipulating their blemishes to facilitate healing and protect their skin by applying sunscreen.
However, if acne scars do occur, many patients seek assistance from a dermatologist. The team at the Center For Dermatology Cosmetic And Laser Surgery has over 50 years of experience in getting rid of acne scarring.
We are one of the few centers that specialize in these techniques. We may use a combination of techniques for the best results. Fading creams may help the redness and dark pigmentation that has been left behind by the scarring process. Depressed and ice pick scars cannot be filled with creams, and they require a more aggressive approach.
Redness can be reduced by using the VBeam or BBL lasers. Please see our laser section for more information, or go to www.sciton.com or www.syneron-candela.com/na/product/vbeam.
Subcision is a technique used to release deeper scar tissue that pulls down on the skin’s surface, making deep scars more shallow and less obvious.
Dermal Grafting is a procedure where skin is taken from behind the ear and inserted under the scar, lifting it up and making it less obvious.
Please check out our website on dermal grafting for more details:http://www.centerforderm.com/correction-of-acne-scaring/
Once the scars are released or grafted, fractional lasers or resurfacing are used to even out the skin surface, increase collagen production, and result in the filling of acne scars. Please see visit our laser dermatology section (micro laser peel, profractional laser) or go to www.sciton.com to learn more about laser therapies.
The Center for Dermatology leverages over 50 years of experience treating acne and unwanted scars that can remain after your acne has cleared. Patients who want to address mild acne scarring may speak to their dermatologist about microdermabrasion and chemical peels. These treatments are often used to reduce the appearance of mild acne scars after active acne has been controlled. Deeper scars can be smoothed out with dermal fillers, excision, subcision, dermal grafting, and laser resurfacing. We offer the next generation in filling in those unwanted acne scars with profractional laser treatments. With only a few days downtime, we can help you look as great as you feel.
