As one of the world’s most popular pulsed-dye laser treatments, the world-renowned doctors at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego is pleased to provide such cutting-edge technology to individuals of all skin types.
The Vbeam Perfecta is a pulsed-dye laser, meaning it helps patients overcome pigmented lesions, vascular problems, and several other skin conditions. Being a pulsed-dye laser, the machine works to target blood vessels deep within the skin, ultimately leading to the reabsorption of the damaged skin vessels by the body. This allows the dermatologic condition that the patient is seeking treatment in San Diego to become diminished in appearance.
PDL treatments are extremely quick and effective, sometimes taking only a few minutes to perform in our office. Though the procedure is relatively pain-free, it is common to experience some redness, tingling, or bruising after the procedure. Depending on the number of visits you need to overcome your specific conditions, final results are generally appreciated in the following few weeks after your last treatment.
Common dermatologic conditions that patients often seek treatment for with the Vbeam Perfecta system includes but are not limited to the following:
- Hyperpigmentation & Brown Pigmentation
- Acne/Acne Scars
- Nose Veins
- Port Wine Stains

What to Expect
During a Vbeam treatment, the laser light is absorbed by hemoglobin within red cells in vessels. As this molecule collects the laser energy, the red cells heat up and the undesirable capillaries are eliminated.
A cooling spray is felt microseconds before the laser fires, making anesthetics unnecessary. Many patients may feel a slight sting during the procedure. Ice packs may be used immediately after to quickly alleviate any discomfort.
After your treatment, you can expect less redness and flushing and the reduction of broken capillaries and veins. Many patients also experience skin that is smooth and glowing, which conveys a rested, youthful appearance.
