VBeam® Laser



Candela VBeam

The Vbeam 595nm pulsed dye laser is the gold standard in the treatment of vascular lesions,  as well as in the treatment of acne, psoriasis and wrinkles. The Vbeam   treats all skin types quickly, comfortably and effectively and features DCDTM, Candela’s patented cryogen cooling system.

Purpura-free Treatment – Innovative ultra-long pulse duration – the longest offered in a dye laser – delivers laser energy to targeted blood vessels over longer periods of time, resulting in a more gentle heating effect and uniform coagulation. By heating targeted vessels more gently, Vbeam eliminates postoperative purpura or bruising.

Versatility – Vbeam’s user-selectable pulse durations and spot sizes are the keys to its versatility. The 5mm spot and short .45msec pulse duration were both added to enable treatment of a greater range of conditions without downtime.

Patented Epidermal Cooling – Candela’s Dynamic Cooling Device represents an adjustable epidermal protection technology to maximize patient safety and comfort.

The Candela Vbeam produces an intense but gentle burst of light that selectively destroys the blood vessels of  your rosacea, without damaging the surrounding   tissue. After laser treatment the surrounding tissue is left intact.

Dr. Levit utilizes this laser to treat: Blood vessels, Rosacea, Scars, Keloids, PWS (port wine stain), cherry angiomas, Hemangiomas, warts:   The gold standard for treating these conditions is a laser in the 585nm   wavlength (Pulse Dye Laser).

Treatment with the Vbeam may consist of multiple treatments.  For facial veins, one treatment may be sufficient   for clearance but a second visit is recommended for the best results.  These treatments occur on an average of   every six to twelve weeks. Each individual situation may vary and it is best to discuss yours with the our physicians. The type of vascular lesion to be treated will determine the number of treatments needed.  The red veins respond better than blue veins and the smaller, matting vessels will respond sooner than the vessels up to 1.5mm in size.  Port wine stain lesions have more vessels to be treated and require multiple treatments but the number of treatments is unknown in advance.

The DCD (Dynamic Cooling Device) which is built into the laser system, delivers a short burst or spray of cryogen   just prior to the laser pulse being delivered. The feeling of a laser pulse has been described as being snapped by a rubber band or a slight stinging sensation. Following laser treatment, the area may continue to sting slightly or feel warm like a sunburn. If a large area is to be treated, anesthesia may be used. A small test area can be performed before the entire area is treated to evaluate your pain tolerance. Most patients tolerate this procedure without any need for anesthesia.

The duration of your rosacea laser treatment depends on the size of the area you wish to have treated or the time allotted by the physician or nurse performing your treatment. You will need to discuss this with the physician or nurse performing the treatment.
