This video shows the technique used to treat active acne with the V-Beam laser.
STEP BY STEP PROTOCOL
EVALUATION AND PREPARATION
After reviewing your medical questionnaire, your treating professional will conduct your complete assessment, starting with pictures from different angles and a visual analysis. The area to be treated should be thoroughly cleansed to facilitate the evaluation.
Protective goggles will be provided to you for your comfort and security. Your treating professional will disinfect the area to be treated using compresses and a disinfectant solution.
Your treating professional will choose the best laser parameters for the treatment of your acne. The wavelength of the V-Beam laser will specifically target the oxyhemoglobin contained in your acne lesions. You may feel a little pinch with each pulse, but the treatment will only last 5 to 20 minutes.
APPLICATION OF CREAM AND POST-TREATMENT INSTRUCTIONS
Your treatment will end with the application of a moisturizer with sun protection, if necessary. You will have redness and mild inflammation when you walk out of your appointment. Finally, before leaving, your professional will explain to you the post-treatment instructions and give you a written copy.
