Vbeam Perfecta is a non-ablative, pulsed dye laser, which means the laser energy is released in pulses through a dyed liquid; the energy harmlessly passes through the surface of the skin. The laser energy heats up and destroys pigment in melanin and red blood cells to reduce excess coloring and blood vessels without harming surrounding tissues.
Vbeam Perfecta Laser Treatments addresses a wide range of skin concerns, including:
- Liver spots
- Mild scarring
- Red stretch marks
- Sun damage
- Port wine stains
- General redness in the face and neck

Vbeam Perfecta is most frequently used on the face, but is safe and effective for most other areas such as the neck, arms, hands, back, and chest.
Results will depend on the condition that was treated. Most patients notice some improvement within the first 4 to 8 weeks as brown coloring sloughs off and redness fades. When Perfecta is used for facial rejuvenation, firming and tightening of the skin may take a little longer as collagen production in the skin increases.
DURING YOUR TREATMENT:
Treatment with Vbeam Perfecta is fast, safe, and comfortable because of the laser’s large spot size and the patented Candela Dynamic Cooling Device. The DCD emits a cooling mist prior to each pulse of the laser. Together, Perfecta’s advanced micro-pulse technology and the DCD prevent post-treatment bruising and require little to no downtime after treatment. Treatments are typically not painful; patients usually feel warmth, tingling, or a snapping sensation during treatment.
RECOMMENDED NUMBER OF TREATMENTS:
The number of treatments required depends on the condition being addressed. We usually recommend a series of 3-5 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart; however, in some cases one treatment is all that is needed.
PRIOR TO YOUR TREATMENT:
- Avoid sun exposure before the treatment and during any staged treatment.
- Proper sun protection use is recommended daily before and after your treatments.
AFTER YOUR TREATMENT:
- For 3 to 5 days after treatment, treated areas will probably look pink, red, or darkened, and may be mildly swollen. You can minimize these side effects by applying ice packs or cold compresses as directed for the first 24 to 48 hours following treatment.
- You may apply camouflage makeup the day after your Perfecta treatment if desired. It’s important to avoid sun exposure and wear a 30+ SPF sunscreen consistently while treated areas heal.
