V-Beam Perfecta™ Pulsed Dye Laser

Our Center has participated in the development of this new laser with the Candela Corporation for the treatment of facial blood vessels, port wine stains and hemangiomas. This laser offers dramatic improvement in the treatment of blood vessels as post treatment bruising and crusting is uncommonly seen and the laser has demonstrated to be extraordinarily safe. The benefit of this laser in the treatment of port wine stains and hemangiomas is seen with less post treatment darkening. There is also the potential for increased improvement in the birthmark treatment as a result of the new parameters available with this laser. The V-beam utilizes the dynamic cooling spray which helps minimize discomfort and has been very well accepted by our patients. Dr. Geronemus has presented one of the first papers on the V-beam at the annual American Academy of Dermatology meeting in San Francisco in March of 2000.
