Young people returning to school after the summer have a gazillion things to think about. For many, one of those things is facing another year with an ongoing acne problem. Whether it’s active acne or scarring from previous bouts, nobody likes showing up for school with unsightly facial blemishes.
Now, they don’t have to.
With Vbeam Perfecta Synergy, teens and others with acne issues can experience a major improvement in their acne with just a few treatments. This outpatient laser procedure is safe and highly effective when performed by a licensed dermatologist, bringing about a new “look” and increased confidence in teen patients who set high standards for their appearance.
How does Vbeam work?
Vbeam is a pulsed dye laser than sends bursts of light into the affected areas of the skin. This light works on acne scars by shutting down the blood vessels that are causing redness and discoloration. Additionally, the process can accelerate the production of collagen to give the newly clear skin more depth and luster.
For active acne, Vbeam can help to destroy acne bacteria in a way that is totally non-intrusive and gentle to the patient.
What about downtime?
The last thing active teens need is to be shut down while waiting to recover from a medical procedure. Fortunately with Vbeam, there’s no shutting down of any kind. After treatment, patients are up and ready to get on with school or work or whatever they have planned.
There may be some swelling after treatment, which is easy to manage with cold compresses. The swelling usually goes away in several hours. Based on your individual condition, your dermatologist can more accurately predict side effects and how long they’ll last.
Who should look into Vbeam treatment?
If you’ve been repeatedly disappointed with “home-spun” acne treatments, you may be a good candidate for Vbeam Perfecta. Those who want to deal with acne issues now, not some time down the line after weeks and weeks of messy cream applications, Vbeam may be just what you’re looking for.
