Pros:

Cleared my skin after several sessions, and reduced red marks left by acne.

Cons:

a tiny bit painful (not as painful as smoothbeam), expensive

I had this in conjunction with Smoothbeam treatments, so I can't say for sure if the V-Beam alone would be helpful. The doctor first did a Smoothbeam treatment and then about 10 minutes later did a V-Beam treatment on the areas that were red. I do believe it helped with the hyperpigmentation left by acne.

Pros:

fixes broken caps in a jiffy! better results than with previous treatment from an IPL. Just had my second treatment. After the 1st treatment....broken capillaries were reduced by 50%

Cons:

looking like a spotted leapord (red/purplish spots)... at 2 days post treatment...hope they go away soon!

Pros:

- Removes 20% of redness
- Does not hurt
- Take very little time

Cons:

- Face red for first few hours after treatment
- Expensive and requires multiple treatment
- Do not expect a clear face

It is worth to try because each people have different reaction to the laser. My results were okay but not as expected. Some parts of my face are still red but not as red before the treatment. Some red spots just dissapear. Looking forward to doing my second treatment.

Pros:

Great for removing redness.

Cons:

May require multiple treatments.
Sometimes temporary results depending on treated area - the body will often fight/reverse the effects of this laser.

This is a great laser for removing redness (plush) from acne breakouts - but don't confuse redness (from blood) with hyper-pigmentation (darker, more browny spots), which aren't treated with this laser. Depending on area used, multiple treatments may be required, and effects can be mixed/temporary. For example, around the nose is a tricky area to fight as the body constantly tries to repair the blood vessels killed by this laser. However, repeated treatments will show better results each time. Talk to the doctor about expected results for each area treated so you aren't disappointed when you have to go back a few times.
