1 week post-op Vbeam with seeing improvement at all. What do you suggest I ask the physician assistant to do to make the vbeam more effective? I heard about "stacking" - is this zapping the same area twice before moving on to next? or about "multiple passes" - going over area more than once. Would either of these 2 methods work? If so, which one is better? She said it may be around 40% improvement after 1st treatment but 0 improvement - I'm discouraged since I have tried all the creams & antibios with no help.Thks
I Have Had 1 Vbeam Treatment 1 Week Ago but Have Not Seen Any Improvement at All. Options?

V-beam may require multiple treatments
Most patients require 2 treatments for erythema (redness). However, some patients need 3-4 treatments. A lot also depends on the energy that's used to do the treatment.
