VBeam Pulsed Dye Laser – Spider Vein and Red Spot Removal
Are you tired of looking at red vessels on your nose and cheeks? Do you have scattered cherry red dots on your body that have appeared over the years and that you would love to be rid of? Do you have redness and ruddiness from rosacea that is not controlled by medications? Do you have red scars that you would like to fade? Then it’s time to discover the new VBeam Prima Laser. Krauss Dermatology is one of the first practices in the country to offer this newest generation of VBeam -the gold standard in vascular lasers.
How Does the VBeam Work?
The VBeam Pulsed Dye Laser is the most effective instrument for removing spider veins (small dilated vessels) from the face, and cherry angiomas (small red spots on the face and body). These lesions often clear with only one or two treatments. The VBeam can also help fade, over the course of multiple treatments, red or raised scars, port wine stain birthmarks, and red discoloration and flushing of the face from rosacea.

Am I a Good Candidate for a VBeam Treatment?
The Pulsed Dye Laser is the most effective instrument for candidates who want to remove spider veins (small dilated vessels) from the face, and/or cherry angiomas (small red spots on the face and body). It works best on patients with lighter skin types and those who are not on blood thinners at the time of treatment.
Why Have Your VBeam Vascular Laser at Krauss Dermatology?
The Vbeam Prima laser is the most advanced model of the gold standard in vascular lasers. The manufacturer of the Vbeam, Candela Corporation, asked our practice to evaluate the prototype of the Vbeam Prima and help them improve the computer software interface. We have been using the Vbeam technology since 2005 to achieve great improvement in a variety of vascular conditions such as broken capillaries, chronic sun damage, rosacea, acne redness and scarring, and surgical scars.
How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?
The VBeam treatment itself takes about 10 minutes to perform by our board-certified dermatologists, depending on the size of the area being treated. Each pulse of light feels like the snapping of a small rubber band, while the cool spray from the laser cools the skin before each laser pulse. A topical numbing cream may be used before the treatment to decrease discomfort.
When will I see results?
You’ll begin to see results about 4 to 8 weeks after your VBeam treatment. Most patients achieve 25-75% improvement with each treatment.
Is There Any Downtime?
The treated area may turn pink to slightly red with some swelling. More rarely, with more aggressive treatment, small areas may turn a purple or blue color that can last for about a week. You may want to schedule the treatment at a time when you don’t have major social or work commitments for 2 days until the redness, and occasionally swelling, go down. Cover makeup and tinted sunscreen can generally be used within 24 hours of treatment.
