About VBeam Laser Treatments in Sartell, Minnesota at Refine Dermatique Skin & Laser Center
Rid your skin of redness
The VBeam® Laser at Refine Dermatique targets red pigmentation in the skin that leaves you with an imperfect and uneven skin tone. Red pigmentation in the St. Cloud area can appear on the skin as rosacea, blood vessels, port wine stains, and blood vessel growths. Scars and stretch marks can also appear as red or discolored marks on the skin.
The VBeam Laser safely and effectively improves the appearance of red scars, stretch marks and more with a pulsed-dye laser. This is the first laser to use selective photothermolysis to treat red discoloration in the skin by allowing the blood vessels, rather than the surrounding tissue, to absorb the laser energy.
The VBeam Laser can improve the appearance of:
- Red scars
- Blood vessels
- Red stretch marks
- Port wine stains
- Blood vessel growths
- Facial veins
- Spider veins
- Leg veins

Frequently Asked Questions about VBeam Laser Treatments in Sartell, MN
Is a VBeam Laser treatment painful?
Some clients experience a “snapping of a rubber band” sensation while receiving a VBeam treatment. A cooling treatment is applied to the skin prior to the treatment to help decrease possible discomfort. While most clients can tolerate the “snapping” sensation, an anesthetic cream can be applied to the skin one hour before treatment.
Is the VBeam Laser safe?
Yes, the VBeam Laser is a safe treatment.
Are there any side effects associated with the VBeam Laser?
Immediately after treatment the skin may appear red and slightly swollen with possible bruising. Redness and swelling typically subside three to five days later (an ice pack may be used to help decrease swelling within the first one to two days.) Depending on the severity of the bruising, bruises typically dissipate one to two weeks after treatment.
When can I begin to see results from my VBeam Laser treatments?
Most improvements appear six to eight weeks following treatment, however this can vary depending on the condition being treated. Multiple treatments may be recommended for optimal results and depending on the severity of the condition being treated.
