I went to get the vBeam on a few broken capillaries on my cheeks, expecting 0 downtime. Like getting Botox. It was horribly painful and I ended up with nearly black bruises and swelling so bad I was put on prednisone. I couldn't leave the house for a week. Now, 5 months later, no remaining damage and the spider veins are gone. Not sure I would do it again, but I should would be better prepared!

I do have a 90% satisfaction in the results. However, for the swelling, pain and downtime, I would not have done it had I know that would be the impact. It took a good 8 weeks for my face to return to normal. My capillaries weren't that bad, but for $400 and "zero downtime", I thought it was worth it to get rid of them. If I knew then what I know now, I would have skipped it.
For the pain and downtime, I probably would have explored other options more first.
