The Vbeam® Prima system: designed to treat 20+ indications.1,2,3

Healthcare providers all over the world use the Vbeam Prima system to treat a variety of indications - for face and body - with high patient tolerability and a low incidence of side effects.1-12 

KEY BENEFITS

Get results that can take your practice to the next level.

Here are just two examples of the significant improvements you can achieve for your patients with the Vbeam Prima system. 

    Rosacea

    • In a clinical study, rosacea symptoms were significantly reduced from moderate to mild13,14
    • Difficult-to-treat erythema was reduced from severe to mild 
    • 84% of patients had >40% rosacea improvement 
    • Minimal adverse side effects reported13 
    • 94% of patients reported being very satisfied with results14 

    Scars

    • The Vbeam Prima system with the 595 nm wavelength highly targets the vascular component of scar tissue
    • In a clinical study, all scars (100%) treated with the Vbeam PDL showed significant improvements in cosmesis15 
    • 80% of patients treated with Vbeam were very to extremely satisfied with their results, and 77% experienced no to moderate pain15
    • Vbeam is proven for treating various vascular skin lesions5 and the cosmetic appearance of surgical scars in Fitzpatrick skin types I to IV16 

    PRODUCT FEATURES

    7 ways the Vbeam Prima device can enhance your practice - and your patients’ experience.

    • Two wavelengths = more treatment parameters: 
      • Our proprietary 595 nm wavelength deeply penetrates the skin to reach targeted blood vessels.5 Its energy is absorbed by oxyhemoglobin to coagulate and clear vessels with more tolerability and fewer instances of melanin absorption.17 
      • New: The Vbeam Prima device adds a 1064 nm wavelength that lets you treat blue veins, venous lakes, and wrinkles3
    Vbeam Prima wavelength feature
    • Greater results in less time. The Vbeam Prima device features a larger max treatment spot size and greater max energy with 595 nm. That adds up to faster, more efficient treatments. 
    • Two types of cooling for maximum versatility and epidermal protection: 
      • Our patented cryogen-based Dynamic Cooling Device™ (DCD™) scales with fluence to automatically administer consistent epidermal protection. 
      • EverCool™ contact cooling lets you treat vascular and pigmented lesions at the same time. 
    • Once-daily system calibration. The Vbeam Prima device auto-calibrates on startup, for less downtime between treatments and more efficient treatments when using a variety of settings. 
    • Smart dye life management. The system’s dye life meter provides real-time data, helping users avoid unexpected treatment interruptions due to dye loss.
    • Precision targeting. The Vbeam Prima device’s versatile zoom handpiece lets users adjust the spot size in increments as small as 0.5 mm.
    • Guided user interface. Intuitive, easy-to-use software provides quick access to saved, favorite treatment settings. 
    • "The broad range of indications for pulsed-dye laser is so extensive, well tolerated, and provides clinically proven results. We find that in our clinical practice the Vbeam lasers are used all day long"
      Roy Geronemus, MD
      Director of the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York
    • "More than any other laser, the Vbeam can meet the needs of patients of all ages, virtually every skin type, and for a very wide range of indications. If you're only going to get one laser, you should get the Vbeam."
      Julie Karen, MD
      Co-founder of CompleteSkinMD New York, New York
    • "Vbeam is precise in how it targets oxyhemoglobin. The other really special thing that the plsed dye does better than any laser, is early scar intervention"
      Jill Waibel, MD
      Owner of Miami Dermatology and Laser Institute Miami, Florida
    • "The newer Prima offers lots of advantages over the older Vbeam. It's more practical, faster, and more likely to achieve better results. So that puts it at the front of the pack of all the players in the vascular and pigmented lesion space."
      E. Victor Ross, MD
      Director of the Scripps Clinic Laser and Cosmetic Dermatology Center San Diego, California
    • The Vbeam Prima is a tremendous leap in technology. This is a big deal. This is a completely redesigned laser. It’s not just the next generation.....it’s really a NEW generation.
      Eric F. Bernstein, MD
    • The redesigned laser not only means it can deliver 50% more energy with the spot sizes I'm using, but it allows me to use very big beam diameters up to 15 millimeters. And what that means is, I can treat faster, which is true, but that's not really exciting, that's just convenience. What's exciting is the whole physics changes and biology of the interaction of the laser with the skin. I think I'm seeing better results, better clinical results. My patients think they're seeing better clinical results.
