VBeam Vascular Laser
When patients present with broken blood vessels, spider veins or acne scars, we can use a number of treatment options, including VBeam Laser. This device was created by Syneron Candela, one of the leaders in laser technology for skin care. VBeam Laser is a great option for spider veins and lesions because the laser pulse can target the oxyhemoglobin in blood vessels, without significantly affecting the surrounding healthy tissues.

How the VBeam Laser Works
The VBeam Laser uses pulsed dye technology to deliver short bursts of energy into the skin. This energy is then absorbed by certain structures, which causes their damage and eventual removal by the body’s lymphatic system. For examp,e, when the VBeam Laser is used to treat spider veins, the energy is absorbed by the blood vessel, which typically causes the vessels to collapse. Over time, the body will break down the destroyed blood vessels and remove them from the body through natural processes.
