Cincinnati VBeam Laser Treatments
Treat redness, visible blood vessels, and blood vessel growths.
The Vbeam is the gold standard in treating:
- Redness & rosacea
- Visible blood vessels
- Hemangiomas & port wine stains
- Cherry angiomas
What to Expect
Photos will be taken prior to your procedure to track your progress. A topical numbing cream will be applied for your comfort.
We will place metal goggles on you to protect your eyes. During the treatment, you will see a bright light and feel a sensation like a rubber band snap with every pulse.
We will apply a cream to promote healing and a mineral-based sunscreen to protect you from the sun. You may be slightly pink and have some swelling that can last 3-5 days. If we are treating cherry angiomas, hemangiomas or a port wine stain, you will have a purple eggplant bruise that can last up to a week.
How long will my appointment take?
Most appointments take 20- 30 minutes depending on the area we are treating.
Does VBeam hurt?
The VBeam laser feels like a sharp rubber band snap with every pulse of the laser delivered to your skin. This sensation goes away very quickly and is tolerable.
Is VBeam safe?
VBeam is a safe treatment in the hands of an experienced professional. We recommend avoiding any laser treatment for 2 weeks before going into the sun and at least 2 weeks after having been in the sun.
When will I see results?
You should notice some improvement within 4-6 weeks. Most people need 2-4 treatments depending on their area of concern.
How long will my results last?
Your results will depend on what we are treating. Cherry angiomas typically resolve but you may develop new growths. If we are treating facial redness, blood vessels or rosacea, you may need maintenance treatments 1-2 times per year to prevent recurrence.
Am I a candidate?
If you have facial redness, telangiectasias (blood vessels), rosacea, hemangiomas or port wine stains, a VBeam can be a very effective treatment.
