Dr. Dimitrios Motakis and his team in Toronto, ON, regularly work with both men and women to help them choose solutions for the face and body. In addition, he also provides nonsurgical treatments such as the pulsed dye laser device called the VBeam® laser. Those looking to address the appearance of blood vessels, spider veins, and other lesions such as birthmarks may find that this device is one of the best ways to target imperfections without using surgical procedures.
What is the VBeam® laser?
The VBeam® laser is a type of pulsed dye laser. The device uses short, intense light pulses to treat blood vessels and other vascular lesions. The VBeam® laser is FDA-approved for treating port-wine stains, spider veins, and other vascular birthmarks. It is also used off-label to treat rosacea, scars, and stretch marks.
How does the VBeam® laser work to treat imperfections on the skin?
The VBeam® laser works by selectively targeting hemoglobin, the red pigment in blood cells. In doing this, it causes the vessel walls to collapse and seal shut. Because the VBeam® laser only targets blood vessels, it is considered a safe and effective treatment option with minimal side effects.
Who is a good candidate for the VBeam® laser treatment?
The best candidates for treatments with the VBeam® laser are patients with vascular imperfections that are bothersome or unattractive. During an initial evaluation, our doctor will discuss the treatment and what to expect to ensure the patient is a good fit for the VBeam® laser treatment. Alternative options may be discussed or referrals made if the doctor cannot effectively treat the issues with the technology available at our doctor’s facility.
