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.
For pigment or sun spot removal:
Spots of hyperpigmentation may be caused by sun exposure, underlying disease, pregnancy, age, heredity, and other factors that increase the production of melanin or pigment in the skin.
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 reducing the pigment in the skin. With several sessions of laser therapy, the melanin is gradually diminished until spots are less prominent or can disappear, revealing your underlying healthy, beautiful skin.
For rosacea and facial redness:
There are many treatment options available. Most patients with mild to moderate rosacea may benefit from cream and oral therapies. This can provide dramatic improvement in the red bumps seen in rosacea.. Patients dealing with more redness and visible blood vessels may be greatly improved with new topical medication that temporarily reduces the appearance of blood vessels. For a more permanent reduction, laser therapy such as the Vbeam can be very effective.
