The Candela VBeam pulsed dye laser is used to safely and effectively treat many vascular skin conditions. The FDA approved the VBeam more than 30 years ago for treatment of port wine stains in infants. Since that time it has become the world’s gold standard for treating vascular lesions including those listed here:

  • Rosacea (red blushing and fine vessels)*
  • Angiomas (red moles or starburst spots on the skin)Facial veins*
  • Port wine stains*
  • Fine red leg veins*
  • Scars (newly formed, still red or pink)*
  • Stretch marks (newly formed, still red or pink)*
  • Periobital wrinkles (around the eye)*
  • Dark under-eye circles*

Additionally, Northwest Face uses the VBeam in the Greater Seattle area to treat bright red matted blood vessels caused by radiation burns during breast cancer treatment. The laser treatment is also used for treating severe acne along with photodynamic therapy and for treating stubborn warts that don’t respond to usual therapy.

Treatment with the VBeam laser has the added benefit of skin rejuvenation. The VBeam is most effective for light skin (types I, II and III)
