Treating redness from acne - VBEAM is gold standard
Treating Purple-Red scars from acne
The V-Beam is the gold standard for treating red scars, especially those from acne. I use the V-Beam every single day for sun damage, rosacea, fine lines, and acne scars. It may take more than one treatment to reduce the redness in this scar. Please consult a board certified dermatologist in your area with a lot of experience with acne scars.
The Vbeam is a pulsed dye laser that is gold standard for removing red on the skin. It is excellent for red acne scars, broken capillaries, rosacea, port wine stains and many other conditions. The injections will improve the thickness of the scar.
Typically you would need a series of treatments to see best results.
Consult with a Board Certified Dermatologist to see what treatment is best for you and how many treatments you may need.
