Laser redness reduction and how it works

A vascular laser delivers a light that is selectively absorbed by the blood vessels in the skin.  This light is absorbed by blood vessels or melanin (pigment) in the skin depending on the condition being treated. The laser light can also help stimulate new collagen formation at the same time resulting in a degree of skin remodeling.

This laser treatment is for:

  • Redness of the face and neck
  • Broken capillaries
  • Spider naevi
  • Early scars
  • Red stretch marks

The VBeam Perfecta® Pulsed Dye Laser is used at Northern Sydney Dermatology to treat redness of the face and neck along with spider veins and broken capillaries. This is considered a laser of choice for redness reduction as it is effective with a low-risk profile. The laser also is able to treat larger areas and larger lesions quickly.
