Pulse Dye Laser

Pulse Dye Laser

The V Beam Perfecta Pulse Dye Laser is a pulse dye laser that delivers an intense but gentle burst of laser light. The light is absorbed by specific blood vessels or melanin in the skin

The V-beam Perfecta Pulse Dye laser is used to treat a variety of skin problems, both  vascular and non-vascular skin conditions

Vascular skin conditions

  • Birth marks: port wine stain, haemangioma
  • Cherry angioma
  • Rosacea and redness of face and neck
  • Broken capillaries and veins
  • Reduce acne outbreaks
  • Red scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Poikiloderma

Non-vascular skin conditions

  • Aging skin
  • Plane warts
  • Angiofibroma
  • Pyogenic granuloma
  • Brown spots: freckles
  • Psoriasis

The V beam Perfecta Pulse Dye Laser technology

  • The yellow 585-595nm wavelength is well absorbed by oxyhaemoglobin in the vessels and melanin in the skin. Hence it can treat red and brown skin lesions while leaving the surrounding skin intact
  • The V Beam perfecta uses the micro-pulse technology where 8 pulses closely mimic one continuous pulse to allow uniform delivery of laser energy. This allows for gentle heating and uniform coagulation to close blood vessels and reduce redness.
  • The V Beam Perfecta laser also disperse and remove brown spots
  • The V Beam Perfecta laser uses a patented Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD) which sprays a cool air onto the skin before the delivery of the laser beam. This protects the outer skin and also provide comfort for the patient

The V-Beam Perfecta Pulse Dye Laser treatment procedure

  • No anaesthesia is needed
  • A protective laser eye shield is put on before the treatment
  • During the treatment, you might feel a warming or tingling sensation or a sensation like a rubber band snap. Each pulse of laser is delivered with a spray of cool air
  • After the treatment, there is a slight pinkness at the treated area.
  • In some conditions like keloids or port wine stain, there may be bruises which can last for 3-5 days.
