I am always busy trying new treatments, so when I met Cosmetic Expert and NYC Dermatologist, Dr. Shereene Idriss, I was down to try everything she suggested! To be the beauty genius she is, Dr. Idriss tried something that I had not previously had, a pulsed color laser (aka V-Beam – V for vascular beam for laser beam), and it really made a big difference.
The beam targets redness and broken capillaries on the surface of the skin while it can also be used to accelerate the recovery from bruising. Shereene explained, "This treatment is intended for rosacea, but can also be used for acne scars, streak marks and facial capillaries, to name a few. The laser uses a concentrated single beam of light directed against the blood vessels in the skin. The light converts to heat, destroying the blood vessel while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. This is one of the most effective treatments for various skin diseases characterized by red discoloration. "
I had some red feelings from pimples and some discoloration, and it helped not only to smooth and tone my skin, but I feel it tightened and tanned the skin as well. If you have rosacea or any kind of red scar that you want to remove, it can make a big difference, so it's definitely worth watching. I found the treatment pain free, but sometimes they use a current anesthetic, and you may need more than one treatment, depending on the red level. Some people may expect to see some redness or swelling after treatment, but I did not. And I know you already know, but you need to wear sunscreen every day, especially after such treatment.
Would you try this? Let me know about red marks and rosacea is a problem for you and any questions you have in the comments below.
