People suffering from rosacea—red blotches on the face—will really benefit from treatments with the Vbeam Perfecta by Candela. Also, those suffering from Telangectasia—broken capillaries (visible blood vessels)—on the face can be treated by the Vbeam laser.  The Vbeam laser provides relief to people who have previously had little or no luck relieving redness from rosacea and broken capillaries.

The Vbeam laser targets the red pigment in dense blood vessels, even in the deep vessels that cause birth marks and port wine stains. The Vbeam affects the lining of the offending blood vessels without damaging the surrounding skin. In fact, the laser will actually improve your skin because it also stimulates the production of collagen, the natural structuring protein that gives skin a youthful appearance.

When correcting skin color and texture we often use the IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) photo-facial and Vbeam together in a treatment series to combat both brown and red pigmentation.

While there is currently no cure for rosacea, the Vbeam laser will treat and suppress the blood veins that cause flare-ups. Treatments are generally done on the entire face and are spaced four to six weeks apart. Light Touch aestheticians can also spot-treat areas of concern. More than one treatment will be needed to achieve optimal results, and those treating rosacea with the Vbeam may find that maintenance treatments will be needed a few times a year to keep symptoms under control.
