What is the V Beam?
Clients who suffer from warts, scars, stretch marks, spider veins, birthmarks or rosacea are faced daily with negative feelings about their appearances, and sometimes even negative reactions to their complexions from others. Luckily there are several excellent solutions that Dr. Weber can provide for his Denver and Lone Tree patients that can help improve their quality of life and restore their skin to its natural, radiant beauty. The state-of-the-art V Beam laser is a highly effective yet gentle method of reducing facial blemishes.
It is so gentle that it can be used on children and infants. With the V Beam comes a patented Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD) that emits a fine mist of cryogen, or cooling agent, as it heats the skin. This helps to protect the patient from discomfort while the laser painlessly eradicates the targeted blood vessels. The V Beam laser is truly considered the gold standard in vascular reduction.

What can I expect from recovery?
Dr. Weber will immediately apply a moisturizer to the skin to protect and heal it. This can be repeated at home several times a day to keep the skin moist and hydrated. You should be sure to shield your skin from the sun for the first few days to help prevent pigmentation changes while you are healing.
You will be able to apply makeup again on the second or third day of your recovery. If any crusts form on your skin, it’s important that you not pick at them. The crusts as well as some minor bruising and swelling are normal reactions to the treatment and will all disappear shortly.
Why should I consider working with Dr. Weber in Lone Tree?
