The Vbeam is a PDL – Pulse Dye Laser. PDL lasers have been used for many years to safely and virtually painlessly remove vascular growths on skin: rosacea, birthmarks, cherry angiomas, scars, red stretch marks, broken blood vessels, sun damaged skin. Rosacea can often leave the face and chest with red patches which flush with emotions and temperature changes. PDL lasers work great to help reduce the redness from rosacea, and if done over several sessions this can be done with minimal down time and great results.
Dr. Papantoniou also uses the KTP laser which targets fine blood vessels as well, and will incorporate the use of the LYRA which is a laser that is superior for bluish blood vessels that are deeper in the dermis.
