Candela VBeam Vascular Treatment

The Candela V-Beam Perfecta is a multi-tasking pulsed dye laser (PDL) can effectively treat:

Broken blood vessels on face and legs
Red birthmarks such as strawberry haemangioma and port wine stains
Acne Scars
Poikiloderma of Civatte (uneven coloring of the neck)
Venous lakes
Stretch marks

How does a pulsed dye laser work?

Pulsed Dye Lasers deliver an intense but gentle burst of light into selectively targeted areas of the skin. The light is absorbed by specific blood vessels or melanin pigmented areas in the dermis depending on the condition being treated. Factors such as the age, color and type of lesions, as well as the location on the body, all determine whether lesions can be removed.

What is the procedure like? Is there any downtime?

Each treatment takes about 30min. No anaesthetics are required, but they may be used. A protective eye shield is then put on for you. The feeling most patients report is a warming or tingling sensation during treatment. The skin being treated is additionally protected by Candela’s dynamic cooling method, DCD, which delivers a cooling mist on to the skin before the laser pulse is emitted. This cooling mist increases comfort during treatment, as well as protects the skin to minimize side effects like redness. There is no downtime after the treatment – you can apply makeup immediately after if needed and continue with your normal activities

Is PDL Treatment safe?

Yes. In fact, treatment is so gentle and safe that it has been successfully used since the 1980’s for the treatment of port wine stain birthmarks in infants and young children, before they are old enough to face harsh social consequences. During treatment, the epidermis is protected by Candela’s exclusive dynamic cooling method, DCD, which sprays a cooling mist onto the targeted area of skin
before each laser pulse, maximizing comfort and protecting the skin during treatment.

How many treatments are needed?

The number of treatments will depend on :

  • Desired degree of improvement
  • Your hormonal status
  • Size of treatment area
  • Pre-medication

On average, treatment can be done 2-4 weeks. For removal of broken capillaries or veins, you may need 2-4 sessions. For clearance of red acne scars, you may need approximately 6 or more sessions for optimal effect. You will be advised further upon consultation with the doctor.

Are there any skin types that are not advised to be treated?

The PDL laser is best suited for lighter skin types or untanned skins. Speak to our doctor to find out if you are suitable for this laser treatment. 

What side-effects can I expect and how long will they last?

You will have some degree of redness and swelling, but it should resolve within a few hours
after treatment. The treated areas may appear darker and can bruise for a short period of time. 
This is normal and will resolve in a few days.

Are there any special precautions I need to take before or after treatment?

It is recommended to avoid sun exposure for 4 – 6 weeks before and throughout treatment to maximize results. A sunblock of SPF 30 or higher should be worn daily during this time. Post treatment care guidelines depend on then condition treated, and should be discussed with you practitioner.
