What can I expect the day I receive VBeam Perfecta laser treatment?

For your comfort during the treatment, you may be given a topical or injectable anesthetic. You will be asked to wear eye protection to shield your eyes from the light emitted by the laser. A skin care specialist will glide the laser applicator over the area to be treated, and a cooling device will blow chilled air across the skin.

Once treatment is complete, a nurse will apply a cool gel to the treated area.
