My ears have both small veins and diffuse redness that gets very red with either exercise or alcohol. Can ear skin be V-Beamed safely?

Yes, V-Beam can be used to treat small blood vessels and diffuse redness on the ears.  Depending on the diameter and color of the blood vessels, as well as your background pigmentation, an Nd:  Yag or KTP laser may be better suited for the blood vessels on the ears.  I recommend that you schedule an in-person evaluation with a board-certified dermatologist with experience in lasers to help determine the best treatment option for you.

V beam for ear

Although ear veins can be safety treated with V-beam one should have a complete medical workup before the procedure to rule out other systemic causes of blushing.

There actually is a smaller hand piece to treat tiny areas which have blood vessels.  I have safely treated all areas of the body with V-Beam including face, ears, neck, chest, back, trunk, and legs.  It is a remarkably safe and effective laser.

Thank you for your question.  The VBeam can be used on the ears but there may be a small chance of bruising and you may need multiple treatments.

I hope this helps.

VBeam can be used on ears to treat small vessels (telangiectasias)

+1

Yes, the VBeam is excellent for treatment of vessels on the ears.  The only place it doesn't work well is on the legs because the pressure in these vessels is higher and the vessels are deeper.
