Facial Redness

Facial redness is caused by small blood vessels in the skin. If the vessel is large enough to see the outline, I prefer the #Vbeam laser. If the issue is more of a background pink/red hue of the skin the IPL (I actually prefer Sciton's #BBL) is a better option. In many cases I will use both during the same treatment. Neither #LASER should cause any downtime, maybe a bit of bruising with the V Beam. Best of luck, Dr. M

The VBeamĀ® lasers treats redness/flushing/broken capillaries specifically, while IPL addresses those and certain types of brown pigmentation as well.
