We use Candela’s V-beam laser to treat a wide variety of cosmetic skin conditions. The V-Beam laser uses advanced micro-pulse technology to treat everything from facial and leg veins, wrinkles, acne and acne scars to stretch marks and sun spots. The V-beam’s Pulse Dye laser releases a burst of light into the selected area of skin, where it is absorbed by blood vessels or melanin pigmented areas, depending on the nature and type of treatment.

Most patient’s who seek cosmetic laser treatment do so because they are interested in improving the overall look of their skin without having to endure more complicated procedures that include a much more significant amount of recovery time.

The procedure is generally painless, although anesthetics may be used, and the treated area is furthermore protected with a dynamic cooling device that reduces redness and swelling. Most patients report a warming or tingling sensation from the V-beam laser.

Results will vary from patient to patient and permanency of results depends on a number of different factors, including the original condition of the treated area and the patient’s lifestyle and daily habits. We are committed to discussing your goals and expectations in order to ensure the best possible results.
