Pigment Correction in Philadelphia, PA
Located in Bala Cynwyd and serving Philadelphia and South Jersey, Dr. Paul M. Glat, MD, FACS, performs pigment correction for patients desiring skin rejuvenation.
What is VBeam® Laser Treatment?
The VBeam® laser works to remove the red color that results from skin issues such as rosacea, spider veins, broken capillaries, scars, pigmented lesions, and stretch marks. The laser treatment can provide you with a more evenly toned appearance.
The integrated Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD) emits a short spray of cryogen onto the skin, milliseconds before each laser pulse, minimizing the thermal effect on the superficial layers of the skin without affecting underlying targeted structures. This in-turn results in greater comfort for patients during treatment.
By selectively cooling the epidermis, while leaving the underlying target at normal temperatures, the DCD minimizes thermal injury, pain, and the risks associated with anesthesia, without decreasing the effectiveness of the laser treatments.
What Conditions Can VBeam® Treat?
The VBeam® laser is the most effective laser for treatment of rosacea, facial veins, acne scars, and surgical scars. VBeam® is also used in the treatment of sun-damaged skin, stretch marks, and wrinkles.
How Does VBeam® Work?
Dr. Paul Glat uses VBeam® laser treatments to deliver an intense but gentle burst of light to the skin. The light is absorbed by the blood vessels in the dermis. These blood vessels are reabsorbed by the body, which allows for a cleaner, more refreshed appearance.
Is the Treatment Safe?
The VBeam® procedure is extremely safe, and there are no major side effects. Side effects may include purpura (bruising), redness, and swelling in the treated area. These side effects are very rare but can occur with aggressive treatments. The effects usually do not last more than a few days.
