The V-Beam Perfecta is not only one of our most effective lasers in treating a bevy of dermatologic conditions, but also one of the most advanced laser systems that we’re proud to offer to our patients. As one of the world’s most popular pulsed-dye laser treatments, the world-renowned doctors at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego are pleased to provide the cutting edge technology to individuals of all skin types.

V-Beam Perfecta Treatments

The V-Beam 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 for 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:

  • Wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation & Brown Pigmentation
  • Rosacea
  • Acne/Acne Scars
  • Birth Marks
  • Nose Veins
  • Port Wine Stains

If you’re dealing with any of the skin conditions listed above, we encourage you to contact our medical practice today to learn more about how we can help you overcome the issue with easy and effective laser treatment in San Diego.

V-Beam Perfecta FAQ’s

The landmark dermatology practice of Cosmetic Laser Dermatology has been long known for their advances in laser technology. Because we house the widest selection of cosmetic lasers in Southern California, patients often have a lot of questions about which laser is right for them. To help our patients, we’ve comprised some of the most frequently asked questions surrounding the V-Beam Perfecta in San Diego.

Q: What can the V-Beam Perfecta treat?

A: The VBeam Perfecta is a PDL laser, meaning it uses Pulsed Dye Light to emit laser energy into your skin. This type of laser is great for correcting port wine stains, birthmarks, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation or brown pigmentation, rosacea, scarring, and acne scarring.

Q: How much does laser treatment cost?

A: Until our dermatologists are able to examine you in our San Diego office, it will be difficult to determine a specific treatment cost, as cost depends on the area being treated and the number of treatments necessary.

Q: Does PDL treatment hurt?

A: This varies on the patient and area being treated. Most commonly, patients report a slight tingling sensation during and after treatment. You may also notice slight redness after completion of your treatment, but this will diminish over the course of the following week or until your treatment plan has come to an end.

Q: Is PDL treatment safe?

A: Treatment with the VBeam Perfecta is extremely safe. To help protect patients and their skin, this type oflaser utilizes a build in cooling mechanism which sprays a light mist onto the treatment area before each pulse by the laser to improve comfort.

Q: Will my results be permanent?

A: A: This greatly depends on the individual and the area being treated. If a patient is seeking treatment to reduce sunspots, for example, and continues to sun tan without proper UV protection, it is very common that the spots could return. It’s a good idea to speak with our dermatologists during your initial consultation to determine the longevity of your treatment results.
