Vbeam® laser treatments clear away redness caused by sun damage, vascular lesions and rosacea to help you have naturally clear, evenly colored skin. Dr. Elizabeth Callahan receives many referrals from area physicians for Vbeam treatments as her Sarasota practice is one of the few facilities in the area to offer this vascular laser.
Healthy, beautiful skin begins at SkinSmart Dermatology®. Request a cosmetic consultation or call our office in Sarasota at(941) 308-7546.
At SkinSmart Dermatology, we use the Vbeam laser on both the face and the body to soften and often eliminate redness from broken capillaries, red spots, stretch marks, port wine stains and rosacea. Our Sarasota patients enjoy a sense of confidence that comes from skin that looks beautiful, often without makeup.
Before recommending any treatment, we ask that you have an in-depth cosmetic consultation. Our cosmetic coordinator will thoroughly evaluate your skin to determine which treatment is best suited to your aesthetic goals. We may recommend IPL photofacials, which correct brown spots and uneven pigmentation in addition to redness.
How it Works
The Vbeam laser energy is selectively absorbed by the red pigment in the blood, which heats and destroys the associated blood vessels to reduce redness. As a result, the source of the redness becomes much less noticeable, and in many cases, resolves completely.
Vbeam laser treatments are gentle enough that usually no numbing agent is required. Generally, two or three treatments, spaced four weeks apart, are necessary to obtain optimal results.
Recovery & Results
Patients experience redness and bruising with more intense treatments, and this can last from several days to one week after treatment. Because the surface of the skin is not affected, you can wear makeup to conceal the treated areas.
