Vbeam Prima

Vbeam Prima® is a highly efficient pulsed-dye laser (PDL) used to treat a variety of concerns, including benign vascular, pigmented, and certain non-pigmented lesions. The combination of the 595nm wavelength and the 1064nm wavelength provides even more treatment versatility. The device boasts high patient tolerability and a low incidence of side effects.

The board-certified physicians at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York have an extensive range of laser devices that allow us to customize all our patient’s treatments to ensure an optimal outcome. We have the experience and expertise to help you meet all your aesthetic goals with comfortable treatments and minimal downtime in most cases. Our team would be happy to meet with you to discuss your concerns and create a personalized treatment plan to keep you looking and feeling your absolute best.

How does Vbeam Prima Work?

This laser offers a dramatic improvement in the treatment of blood vessels with the ability to target the blood inside the vein without affecting the surrounding skin and tissue. Post-treatment bruising and crusting are uncommon after this treatment, making the device particularly safe for treating vascular concerns.

The Vbeam Prima adds a second wavelength that allows for the treatment of venous lakes, blue veins, fine lines, and wrinkles. There is no downtime after the procedure, making it easy to work a Vbeam procedure into your daily schedule.

What does the Vbeam Prima Treat?

When Will I See Results?

You may see initial improvement immediately following your procedure. However, full results are likely to develop in a week or two after your session. Those results should be very long-lasting.

How Long is the Recovery Time After Treatment?

Downtime after a Vbeam Prima treatment is minimal. Most patients resume their daily routine right away. Side effects are typically mild and temporary and may include some slight swelling or skin redness for a day or two.
