5 Skin Conditions Improved by VBeam Laser:
Aging and repeated long-term exposure to sunlight are the more common reasons for wrinkles to appear. “As you age, your skin cells are slowly dividing while the inner layer of the skin begins to thin,” explains Dr. Miriam Hanson, board certified Dermatologist cosmetic expert at Sanova Dermatology. “The foundation layers in the skin begin to loosen which leads to saggy skin and the forming of furrows.” Exposure to sunlight is the leading cause of early skin aging also known as photoaging. Sunlight harms collagen, a protein fiber which provides structure for the skin. It also damages elastin, another protein fiber that gives the skin stretch and recoil.
The VBeam laser vitalizes collagen and elastin fibers giving you a younger look. The treatment rejuvenates the skin without the downtime of surgery or invasive treatments.
Healing wounds that have a significant amount of disturbance can leave unsightly scars. Scars from injuries, surgeries or acne are unfortunate and affect the quality of life of many.
“The VBeam can help heal damaged tissue in scars while facilitating the new generation of skin cells,” says Dr. Hanson. The result is a significantly diminished scarring, beautiful skin, and a more positive self-image.
3. Stretch Marks
Striae Distensae or more commonly known as stretch marks occurs when the skin’s connective tissue becomes overstretched due to changes in the body. “These dermal scars are found in just about anyone but usually observed in pregnant women, adolescents, body builders and those whose weight fluctuates during a short period,” Dr. Hanson notes. While there are no medical risks, stretch marks can have a psychological effect on some.
The VBeam will spark new tissue generation which will reduce the appearance of stretch marks making for a smoother texture of skin in the affected areas.
4. Leg Veins
Varicose, reticular and spider veins occur when vein walls weaken and then become abnormal. Though spider veins can show anywhere, usually found on the legs or face. Heredity, extended standing or sitting, advanced aging, and obesity are some of the factors that can contribute to this condition. VBeam pulse dye laser produces heat that targets affected blood vessels and veins constricting them and causing them to naturally fade without damaging neighboring tissue.
Rosacea is a skin condition that can cause visible blood veins, facial redness, and acne-like breakouts usually around the eyes, cheeks, and forehead. Flare-ups can occur at any time and can last for weeks or months. It is important to understand and avoid anything that might cause a flare up such as alcohol, certain foods, medication, stress, etc.
VBeam laser treatments go after the symptoms of rosacea to give you visible and emotional relief.
