Hear what people are saying about Vbeam treatments


 

  • For lasers, I love the V-Beam®, YAG, and IPL
    Dr. Marnie Nussbaum
  • The V-Beam felt like a gust of cold mist.
    Or Gotham, Editor intothegloss.com
  • My post-laser face had nominal swelling and redness. In fact, by that evening, I looked very much like myself again: hot, moody, and like a Claymation John Legend. Upon closer inspection in natural light, I found that I looked very clear. Translucent, maybe? My cheeks and chin looked as close to one color as they ever have. My nostrils, formerly a site of pronounced veining, looked even—like an infant’s nostrils.
    Or Gotham, Editor intothegloss.com
  • I get a VBeam laser every 3-4 months to remove the dilated blood vessels and keep my rosacea under control.
    Dr. Leslie Baumann
  • As a 43-year-old woman, I enjoy fillers and Botox on a regular basis, as well as Vbeam Perfecta treatments.
  • I used to describe the VBeam as being like a baby dragon sneeze. It just zaps you for a second and that’s it. The cortisone injections were also very minor. I liked how much care was put into not overtreating. I was so anxious for it to be gone that I was pretty insistent, but I’m glad they convinced me to just be patient and wait for it to work.
    Kelly H.
  • The VBeam targets things that are red like blood vessels and rosacea and it can help reduce bruising,” he says. “I like to do it a couple of times a year to reduce any broken capillaries and any redness in my cheeks and nose.
    Dr. David Shafer
