Does the V-Beam help build collagen?
Sep 26, 2010
I have to have V-Beam treatments for the broken blood vessels I get on my face from Rosacea. So my question is, does the V-Beam help build collagen? Thanks for any info.
The short answer is no. The reason is that it is a "true" laser which has only 1 wavelength. The IPLs remove blood vessels, remove brown spots AND build collagen because they light they emit contains a spectrum of wavelengths between about 500 nm and 1200 nm. The longer wavelengths are the ones that build collagen. Dr I
