How VBEAM Laser Works
As we age, skin issues like excess redness, spider veins, or broken blood vessels can become more apparent - impacting the self esteem of our patients. Fortunately, the VBEAM laser treatment offers a promising solution to address these skin issues, with minimal side effects or prolonged downtime.
The VBEAM treatment is a cutting-edge laser technology designed to deeply target and treat a wide range of vascular conditions and skin pigmentation issues. The treatment uses short bursts of laser energy to target, collapse, and remove specific blood vessels and pigmented areas in the skin without damaging the surrounding tissues. This process also stimulates natural collagen production, and patients often experience clearer, more radiant skin with minimal downtime and discomfort following treatment.
Don’t let skin pigmentation hold you back from living your life to the fullest. Discover the transformative power of VBEAM laser treatment under the guidance of Dr. Sal Farruggio and his experienced team. With a customized care plan and a commitment to exceptional results, Dr. Sal empowers patients to feel confident about their laser treatment journey.
Treatment Focus Areas
The VBEAM laser uses pulse dye technology to deliver short bursts of energy to the skin and is primarily used to treat skin pigmentation issues like rosacea, facial veins, and birthmarks. By using targeted laser energy, only affected areas will be treated.
By delivering a concentrated beam of laser energy, VBEAM laser treatments can target the underlying blood vessels responsible for the redness and flushing associated with rosacea. The laser energy is specifically absorbed by affected blood vessels, causing them to coagulate and shrink without harming the surrounding healthy tissues. Redness will fade, visible blood vessels diminish, and your skin will appear more even-toned.
With targeted pulses of energy, VBEAM laser treatments can target the small, superficial blood vessels responsible for facial veins. During the treatment, the laser emits a concentrated beam of light that is absorbed by the targeted blood vessels. This causes them to coagulate and collapse, which reduces the appearance of facial veins and leaves a clear and even complexion.
Vascular birthmarks, such as port-wine stains, can be effectively treated by the VBEAM laser. The concentrated laser beam can be absorbed by the blood vessels responsible for discoloration, leading to a gradual lightening of the birthmark. Patients with pigmented birthmarks can also be treated. The VBEAM can precisely target excess melanin pigment to break it down and promote a more even skin tone.
What to Expect from your VBEAM Treatment
All laser treatments at Advanced Plastic Surgery are performed in our office. Targeted areas may be treated in one session, or, depending on your desired results, over multiple visits. During your visit, you will be given protective eyewear to wear.
You can anticipate a comfortable and well-supported experience. The duration of your session will depend on the size and number of treatment areas, although sessions do not exceed one hour. During your session, you may experience a mild warmth and prickling sensation, although most VBEAM sessions are generally painless.
VBEAM treatments have minimal downtime and you will typically be able to resume your daily activities immediately following your procedure. Lightening and removal of affected skin areas will be fully realized within a few weeks.
When VBEAM Treatment is Right For You
Determining if a VBEAM laser treatment is right for you depends on several factors. If you are seeking to address skin pigmentation concerns such as rosacea, facial veins, or birthmarks, this may be an effective treatment. VBEAM lasers use concentrated pulses of light to precisely target excess pigmentation or visible blood vessels, promoting a more even skin tone.
The VBEAM treatment may also be suitable for patients who prefer a painless, non-invasive approach to skin rejuvenation. With VBEAM laser treatments, you’ll be able to return to your daily activities almost immediately with a renewed and refreshed complexion.

Ask Dr. Sal
Here are some of the frequently asked questions we have answered for our patients over the years:
The VBEAM laser treatment is used to address vascular conditions and can be used across many areas. VBEAM treatments are commonly used on the face, neck, legs, hands, and back.
VBEAM treatments typically involve minimal discomfort for most individuals. While pain tolerance can vary from person to person, many patients describe the sensation of VBeam laser treatments as similar to the snapping of arubber band.
The timeline for seeing results from a VBEAM laser treatment can vary depending on the specific condition being treated and other individual factors. While some improvements may be noticeable shortly after the procedure, it often takes time for the full benefits to become apparent.
Following a VBEAM laser treatment session, patients are often advised to apply cold compresses or ice packs to reduce swelling and discomfort to the treated area. It is also crucial to protect the treated area from direct sunlight for about a week following treatment. Finally, hot showers, saunas, and strenuous activities are to be avoided for a few days as they may increase redness and irritation in the treated area.
