Proven results delivered with the best in class technology
Dr. Crofts is excited to offer Vbeam laser treatments at his Utah County office in Lindon, Utah. The Vbeam Perfecta system can improve the appearance of red scars, rosacea, vascular abnormalities such as facial veins and leg veins, among other skin abnormalities. The Vbeam Perfecta system uses Pulsed Dye Laser (PDL) technology to deliver an intense but gentle burst of light into targeted areas of the skin. There, it’s absorbed by the blood vessels or melanin pigmented areas, removing the targeted imperfections.
The Vbeam laser improves the appearance of:
Most patients are reclining or lying down, depending on the area being treated. The laser will be calibrated and parameters set based on the specific condition being treated.
Patients often report a warming or tingling sensation during the treatment, although anesthetics are usually not required. After treatment, patients experience a sensation similar to mild sunburn. During the treatment, skin may receive additional protection through the Dynamic Cooling Device cooling system (DCD™), which delivers a cooling burst of cryogen before the laser pulse is delivered. The DCD cooling increases comfort during treatment and minimizes side effects such as redness.
PDL treatments have been used since the 1980s for the treatment of port wine stains in infants and young children. The DCD cooling goes a long way toward ensuring both the patient’s comfort and the protection of the treated skin. Some patients experience redness immediately after treatment, but it usually goes away in a few hours. Occasionally a laser bruise called purpura may occur; this usually disappears in three to five days.
