Vbeam Perfecta features Candela’s advanced micro-pulse technology providing consistent and gentle heating, which allows for effective, low-bruise treatment for vascular and epidermal pigmented lesions.
When you have any skin condition that causes redness from broken or inflamed blood vessels, the most effective laser treatment is a vascular laser called Vbeam. With a specific ability to “take the red out“, Vbeam is used to reduce redness left after acne, for small spider veins on the face and body, and for the control of redness and facial flushing from Rosacea. Perfecta Vbeam is the latest generation of Vbeam laser offering Combination Therapy of pigmentation, diffuse redness and veins.

Frequently Asked Questions
A.The Candela V-beam produces an intense but gentle burst of light that selectively reduces the blood vessels of your spider veins, without damaging the surrounding tissue. After laser treatment the surrounding tissue is left intact. This laser can also be used for the treatment of port wine stains and other vascular lesions.
For Acne Scar Redness
Especially, for Post-Acne Redness After an acne lesion has healed, there is nearly always redness left in it’s place from tiny broken vessels. This redness calls attention to where the acne used to be and often last many months. Jenesis uses the Perfecta Vbeam to shrink the vessels and return discolored area to a more normal color.
All patients benefited from a 30-50% reduction in the post-acne redness after the first treatment. After three or four treatments, a reduction in redness of 75-90% was achieved. In a number of patients, the post-acne redness disappeared altogether. The results seemed to vary based on the depth of the acne scarring.
For Redness from Rosacea
The primary signs of rosacea include redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead; small visible blood vessels on the face; bumps o r pimples on the face; and watery or irritated eyes.Rosacea’s persistent facial flushing and inflammation leaves most Rosacea sufferers with constant diffuse red areas. Vbeam is recognized as one of the most effective treatments for Rosacea – not only by Dr. Jane, but by many respected physicians across the country. Dr. Jane uses the top line Vbeam laser, the Perfecta Vbeam. It has been a real breakthrough treatment for people suffering from rosacea”
For Red Spider Veins and Telangectasia on the Face
Small veins on the face and nose not caused by Rosacea are quickly treatable, and often with a single session you will see vast improvement. These tiny veins can be caused by sun damage, cold weather exposure (think skiing), aging and in some instances dietary habits that include excessive alcohol use.
For Spider Veins on the Legs and Ankles
Spider Veins in the lower extremities are usually genetic. If one of your parents has vein problems, there’s a good chance you will too. Early treatment prevents these veins from “spreading”. Spider veins may look bad, but don’t pose the same risk as deep varicose veins. These smaller veins are easily treated with Veam laser or when indicated, with Sclerotherapy – or both.
For Birthmarks and Port Wine Stains
Birthmarks are raised or colored marks on the skin that are either present at birth or develop shortly thereafter. Some birthmarks only affect the surface of the skin, while others can be raised above the surface or extend into the tissue underneath. Birthmarks often fade as a child ages, although some are permanent. Most birthmarks do not require treatment. Those that do respond best to pulse dye lasers such as the Vbeam laser.
A. The Candela V-beam is not recommended for patients with darker skin. Because of the increase in skin pigment the laser will be less effective on damaging the blood vessels of the spider veins or other vascular lesions to be treated. The depth of penetration of the Candela V-beam is limited to vessels about 1.5mm in depth. Therefore, vessels deeper than this may not respond to the therapy. Additionally, blue vessels may not respond as well as red ones.
A. Avoid exposure to the sun and tanning of the areas that are to be treated throughout the course of treatment. Immediately following the treatment, the area may be slightly swollen, sensitive and may feel warm.
A. Patients may experience some temporary discoloration or reddening of the skin around the treatment site. Pigmentary changes in skin color may be experienced by some patients. The skin will typically return to normal pigmentation over time
A. For the treatment of facial spider veins we generally recommend a total of 3-5 treatments each a month apart. However, the type of vascular lesion to be treated will determine the number of treatments needed. The red veins respond better than blue veins and the smaller, matting vessels will respond sooner than the vessels up to 1.5mm in size. Port wine stain lesions have more vessels to be treated and may require multiple treatments.
A. Avoid the sun 4-6 weeks before and after treatment with this laser. The feeling of a laser pulse has been described as being snapped by a rubber band or a slight stinging sensation. Following laser treatment, the area may continue to sting slightly or feel warm like sunburn. You may also experience mild bruising on the areas treated by the laser for a week.
