In the field of cosmetic enhancement, the Vbeam Pulsed Dye Laser represents the highest caliber of vascular lasers available. Not only can it treat common vascular conditions, such as rosacea and broken capillaries, it can also treat other surface blemishes of the skin, such as melasma, sunspots and other types of hyperpigmentation. At the office of Dr. Karamanoukian, we love the Vbeam laser because it is also one of the gentlest lasers on the market, allowing patients to remain perfectly comfortable during and after treatment. With rejuvenating results and zero downtime, the Vbeam may be the exact treatment you’ve been seeking for skin discoloration correction, among other skin blemishes.

“Dr. K is not only an amazing doctor but a friend as well. He cares and listens to what your needs and concerns are. I highly recommend him. He has helped me tremendously with my Melasma, to the point were random people come up to me and compliment me on my skin. I owe it all to him!” Patient Testimonial

Benefits of Vbeam

In the treatment of vascular conditions, such as spider and varicose laser vein removal, the Vbeam laser uses micro-pulse technology with concurrent cooling of the upper layers of skin. The laser penetrates beneath the skin’s surface directly to the vessels being treated. By heating these vessels, the Vbeam causes the vessel walls to shrink, reducing their appearance on the skin’s surface.

In the treatment of other skin blemishes, such as liver spots, the Vbeam laser is absorbed by the hyperpigmentation. This creates a breakdown of the skin’s pigment, drastically reducing or eliminating the blemish. Patients who have received Vbeam report a significant decrease in the appearance of surface blemishes. If you're looking to improve blemishes on your skin, Vbeam laser skin treatment might be just the thing for you.

  • As an all-around rejuvenating laser, the Vbeam is a great option to correct the following skin conditions:
  • General redness on the neck and face
  • Port wine stains
  • Sun damage
  • Freckles
  • Red stretch marks

  • Rosacea
