The V-Beam Perfecta is a pulsed dye laser that can be used to treat vascular lesions and some pigmented lesions. Common conditions we treat are:
-Angiomas (small round red vascular lesions)
-Poikiloderma of Civatte (mottled red and brown color of upper chest and neck)
-Facial Telangiectasia (small blood vessels on face)
-Scars and Striae
-Back of Hands (sun spots)
-Port Wine Stains
Treatment with the V-Beam feels something like being flicked with a rubber band, and you will feel some heat. Topical anesthesia is usually not required. Usually, a series of several treatments is necessary for optimal results.
