What is the Vbeam® Laser?
The Vbeam® Laser Treatment is used for the face veins, rosacea, and other vascular lesions.
The Vbeam Perfecta® Laser is the latest, most advanced pulsed dye laser technology, used to treat:
- Face veins (telangiectasias)
- Facial, neck and chest redness
- Bruising after filler treatments and other causes (Vbeam must be within 36 hours of filler treatment to be effective)
- Hemangiomas (large and small red bumps or growths)
- Red birthmarks (port wine stains)
- Other vascular lesions, including venous lakes (blue spots, usually found on lips)
- Red, pink and purple Scars

Dr. Lorrie Klein’s rare combination of technical expertise and aesthetic sensibility puts her at the forefront of dermatologists nationwide. Dr. Klein’s reputation for providing natural-looking results is why she’s the choice of women and men from throughout Southern California and beyond.
The Vbeam produces an intense but gentle burst of light that selectively destroys the blood vessels within the treated area, without damaging the surrounding tissue. Red veins respond better than blue veins and smaller vessels respond sooner than larger ones. While one treatment will produce some improvement, 2-5 treatments will probably be needed to achieve the best results. Treatments are performed 4 or more weeks apart.
No preparation is necessary. Do not apply any anesthetic (numbing) gels before your treatment. Treatments are well tolerated without them. The feeling has been described as being snapped by a rubber band or as a slight stinging sensation. Following treatment the area may feel warm or sting slightly like a sunburn.

Improvement can usually be seen immediately. Immediately following the treatment however the area may appear red or bruised and possibly slightly swollen. Swelling usually resolves within 1-5 days while purpura (bruising) and/or redness may last 3-14 days. Crusting can rarely develop. As with many lasers, color changes (darkening or lightening of skin color) can occasionally occur in darker skin types as can scarring (in less than 1% of cases.)
For important social events, treatment should not be done within 14 days before the event, except when treating bruises.
