Vbeam and the use of topical numbing
V-Beam and topical numbing medicine
V-Beam works extremely well and is the gold standard for treating redness. Numbing medicine will not negatively affect the laser from working. If your physician is treating the area they may suggest numbing cream since the V-Beam stings. Most patients do not require numbing medicine before the procedure.
