Pulsed Dye VBeam Laser in Los Angeles

VBeam Laser

The Vbeam laser is one of the most prolific cosmetic lasers used to treat facial blushing, rosacea, and vascular changes of the skin. In our Santa Monica and Beverly Hills plastic surgery office, Vbeam advanced technologies are used to improve hypervascular skin changes on the face and body. The Vbeam uses pulsed dye energy to heat up and destroy superficial blood vessels in the skin with amazing success. Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is a specialist in the Vbeam laser, having demonstrated the technique multiple times on The Doctors television show. 

Vbeam laser is often used to treat spider veins on the nose, face, and legs; rosacea; scars; and stretch marks. Unlike ablative lasers like fractional CO2 and Fraxel, treatments with the Vbeam perfecta or Vbeam Platinum require no downtime or recovery. The side effect and risk profile for Vbeam laser is minimal, with patients reporting improvement in their skin conditions soon after treatment. 

Dr. Karamanoukian uses the Vbeam pulsed dye laser for scar therapy as a preemptive tool to reduce the development of early scars; or as a late tool for hypertrophic and keloid scars that have developed. Vbeam pulsed dye laser quickly destroys the blood supply to overactive red scars, causing them to regress with time. 

Vbeam Bruise Treatment

Cosmetic plastic surgery and dermatology treatments can sometimes lead to bruising that can outlast our social schedules. Botox, Juvederm, Restylane, and other facial filler injections can cause bruising around the eyes and forehead. At Kare Plastic Surgery + Skin Health Center in Santa Monica, our expert plastic surgeon uses the Vbeam and IPL Limelight treatments to reduce bruising and improve the time to bruise-elimination in patients that cannot tolerate the normal process of bruise clearance by their skin.

The Vbeam laser is an effective tool in the elimination of bruises. It is considered a gold-standard in bruise treatment and has been demonstrated on The Doctors by Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian as a safe skin treatment for unwanted bruising. If you have developed a bruise after facial filler injections or Botox injections, please call our patient care coordinator to schedule an urgent appointment consultation with Dr. Karamanoukian in Santa Monica.

"The Vbeam laser is a gold-standard in the treatment of bruises and skin injuries on the skin. Our center is guided by the most advanced protocols to help ease your recovery after facial fillers and injections." Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian


Immediately after your Vbeam laser treatment in Santa Monica, you will experience some increased redness and warmth that is completely normal and expected. The redness will slowly resolve and initiate the resolution of your bruise. Depending on the depth of your bruise, whether it goes deep into the epidermis or dermis, you may need multiple treatments to resolve the bruising caused by injections. Dr. Karamanoukian is also experienced in treating deepr bruising that has resulted from vein injections, vein treatments, cosmetic plastic surgery, and trauma.

Vbeam Rosacea Treatment

The Vbeam laser is ideal for those patients with rosacea who wish to treat their skin condition without medications. Celebrated by dermatologists and plastic surgeons as the gold-standard for vascular lasers, Vbeam pulsed dye laser is used to destroy localized skin inflammation and skin telangiectasia that is rampant in rosacea. Although several treatments are required to effectively reduce rosacea symptoms, the recurrence rate for rosacea is still relatively high after therapy. Vbeam treats rosacea rather than cures the skin condition, so longterm maintenance with Vbeam is required. 

Treatment sessions for Vbeam laser are typically spaced one month apart in the treatment of rosacea and facial blushing. Downtime is minimal after treatment and patients are advised to avoid direct sunlight between laser sessions.
