VBeam is a low energy laser especially designed to deal with various skin conditions, from acne and scars to rosacea and stretch marks. What makes this solution stand out in the crowd is the fact that it emanates a gentle heat wave just underneath the skin’ surface, thus dealing with the condition from the inside out. The heat beam has the major roles of stimulating the natural collagen production while making the skin a less welcoming environment for bacteria in time. And, perhaps the biggest trump card is that it has an ideal wavelength that considerably minimizes the propensity of side effects.
Before the treatment, the most important thing to remember before undergoing a session with VBeam is to avoid sun exposure. At the same time, it is advisable that the treatment is not performed on tanned skin, as otherwise the results might not be satisfactory. Not to mention that the risks of healing with skin discoloration is exponentially higher.
After the VBeam treatment
In order to enjoy the maximum from the VBeam treatment, it is crucial that you follow the recommendations of our physicians here at Ethos Spa Skin and Laser Center. However, because VBeam is not an ablative laser (does not remove the skin) the recovery time is considerably lower, usually up to one day. During that time it is possible that the skin will be reddish and will feel tender, similar to minor sunburns.
Even though it depends on the severity and type of acne, the average time needed for the skin to be cleared of acne-causing bacteria, lesions and red marks is of approximately 3 to 4 weeks. Nonetheless, many patients have gladly stated that they have observed a reduction of the acne following the second or third treatment. It is important to note that after the acne is gone completely you might have to undergo a touch-up procedure from time to time to avert a breakout and maintain the desired results.
