THE CANDELA VBEAM® PERFECTA LASER: OUR PHOTO-REJUVENATION PROGRAM
The Goodskin staff has years of experience with the VBeam® Laser technology, so you can feel confident that your treatment will be both safe and effective.
Whether you suffer from rosacea or sun damage, excessive flushing or unsightly scars, Goodskin’s photorejuvenation program can help even out your skin tone and return your healthy, youthful glow. Topical creams can only go so far, but incredible advances in dermatology have developed state-of-the-art pulsed dye laser technology that can reach beneath the skin and reverse the effects of discoloration from photodamage, angiomas, and more.
Everything in our world absorbs light of different colors to different degrees, including our skin.
Most modern medical laser treatments utilize something called “selective photothermolysis,” which means that the laser is made to give off a very specific kind of light that will be selectively absorbed by the target area, or “chromophore,” to counteract its particular color.
The VBeam® Laser utilizes a yellow light, which effectively neutralizes the red color of hemoglobin in capillaries that cause spider veins, flushing, and rosacea.
As the light energy from the laser is absorbed, it selectively heats the tiny blood vessels, damaging their walls so that they will gradually fade and disappear. It can also neutralize brown melanin and certain tattoo and water pigments.
