V-Beam Purpura More Than Expected - Portland, OR

I have had V-beam a number of times and it works well for spider veins. 3 weeks ago today I had V-beam purpura.

Broken Capillaries on Face - Painful, Downtime, Good Result - Omaha, NE

I went to get the vBeam on a few broken capillaries on my cheeks, expecting 0 downtime. Like getting Botox.

V Beam Takes More than 1

You will need to go do this at least 3-5 times. If you plan on doing this for anything, you might as well schedule 3-5 or you will not get the results you want. If you plan on doing just 1, save up until you can afford 3-5. You will not notice anything after the first one. First of all, if... READ MORE

V Beam healing

Hello Everyone, I too was duped into thinking laser was a magic eraser with zero consequences. I had my under eyes treated with the V Beam 2 yrs. ago for very minor capillaries. I thought, "Why not?"
