PULSED DYE LASER TECHNOLOGY

The Vbeam Technology
Vbeam Mechanism of Action

The Vbeam Laser System is a flashlamp-excited pulsed dye laser indicated for dermatological applications. It delivers pulsed laser energy at a wavelength of 595nm that passes through the dermis and epidermis skin layers and is absorbed by the oxyhemoglobin in the blood vessels rather than by the surrounding tissue.

Absorption
Absorption is the transformation of radiant energy to another form of energy (usually heat) by interacting with matter.
Chromophore
A chromophore is an endogenous light-absorbing particle, which absorbs light of a specific wavelength.
Energy fluence
The energy contained within light is expressed in Joules (J). The energy fluence determines the amount of laser energy delivered in a single pulse and is expressed in Joules/cm2.
Pulse
The brief span of time for which, the focused and scanned laser beam interacts with a given point on the skin (in seconds, milliseconds, nanoseconds).
Pulsed dye laser (PDL)*
The Pulsed Dye Laser, or PDL, uses a concentrated beam of light (595nm wavelength in Vbeam) that targets blood vessels in the skin. PDL was the first laser to utilize the concept of selective photothermolysis to treat dermatologic conditions. The first application of this concept was directed at treating port-wine stain birthmarks (PWSs). Advances in PDL technology allow for a myriad of vascular conditions, such as rosacea, scars, red striae and photodamage, etc. to be treated easily.
Purpura
A rash of purple spots on the skin caused by internal bleeding from small blood vessels. When using Vbeam, treatment parameters can be selected to induce purpura for treating conditions (i.e., PWS), where purpura is a desired endpoint.
Selective photothermolysis
Selective photothermolysis is the concept used to localize thermal injury to a specific target based on its absorption characteristics, the wavelength of light used, the duration of the pulse, the size and shape of the target and the amount of energy delivered.
