Laser Treatments Q & A

Candela® VBeam Laser

Candela® VBeam Laser is used to treat:

  • Facial redness and blood vessels
  • Fresh surgical and traumatic scars
  • Acne Scars
  • Resistant warts
  • Port-wine stains
  • Vascular birthmarks

The Candela® VBeam Pulse Dye laser’s ability to treat a wide range of skin conditions makes it the most utilized laser in our practice.

The Candela® VBeam Pulse Dye laser is a “visible light” laser; by delivering an intense but gentle burst of yellow light into the skin, its energy is absorbed by hemoglobin in blood vessels. The body then removes these blood vessels during the natural healing process.

How Candela® VBeam Laser Works

By using an inherent property of lasers called selective photothermolysis, the Pulse Dye laser targets vessels while sparing other skin structures such as pigment cells (melanocytes), hair follicles, etc. The incidence of dark spots, white spots, and scarring is extremely low. Additionally, the Candela® VBeam uses dynamic cooling of the skin to further enhance the safety and comfort profile. 

In some cases, we combine Candela® VBeam Pulse Dye laser treatment with a topical photosensitizing agent (aminolevulinic acid)) that enhances the laser’s properties: this is called photodynamic therapy or PDT.
