V beam® Laser is an effective laser acne treatment. Vbeam® laser treatment can significantly reduce both inflammatory acne and non-inflammatory acne. Generally, a series of three Vbeam® laser treatments are given at 2-week intervals. Following laser treatment, inflammatory acne lesions are reduced by an average of 85% and non-inflammatory acne lesions are reduced by approximately 70%. In addition, the laser will help improve acne scars and reduce redness in the skin.
