Vbeam Pulse Dye Laser

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

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

Vascular skin conditions

  • Birthmarks: 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 oxyhemoglobin 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 disperses and removes brown spots
  • The V Beam Perfecta laser uses a patented Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD) which sprays cool air onto the skin before the delivery of the laser beam. This protects the outer skin and also provides comfort for the patient

The V-Beam Perfecta Pulse Dye Laser treatment procedure

  • No anesthesia 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 that can last for 3-5 days.
