Treating All Your Skin Concerns
The Vbeam laser is a pulsed dye laser developed by Syneron Candela. They are the world leaders in cosmetic technology and have developed a laser that has dual wavelength and duel cooling which helps to provide a better treatment procedure to patients. The pulsed dye laser delivers intense, but gentle, light into targeted areas of the skin. The light is then absorbed by blood vessels or melanin in the skin.
