Candela Corporation highlighted the two studies that have reported superior results on patients who benefited from the Candela Vbeam laser treatments for bruising resulting from cosmetic procedures. The study results revealed that Vbeam pulsed-dye laser significantly accelerated the healing process, improved outcomes, and provided greater overall patient satisfaction.
In the study published entitled: Pulsed-Dye Laser for Treating Ecchymoses After Facial Cosmetic Procedures by DeFatta, R. J., Krishna, S., and Williams, E. F., III concluded that the Vbeam laser treatment resulted in a 63% mean improvement in ecchymoses scores within forty-eight (48) to seventy-two (72) hours.
The second study by Elizabeth Hale, M.D., Julie Karen, M.D., Chris Hunzeker, M.D., Elliot Weiss, M.D., Leonard Bernstein, M.D., Lori Brightman, M.D., Anne Chapas, M.D., and Roy Geronemus, M.D. showed that twenty-four hours post-treatment with the Vbeam laser, the average improvement was 62% and 13% for treated and untreated bruises, respectively. The study abstract A Simple Solution to a Common Problem evaluated the effectiveness and safety of the long-pulse PDL (the Vbeam) for the treatment of ecchymoses.
Edwin F. Williams, M.D., Director, The Williams Center Plastic Surgery Specialists, and nationally recognized plastic surgeon pioneered this breakthrough Vbeam treatment. Anytime you penetrate the skin there is a potential for bruising and we find that it is the bruising which occurs after many of these procedures that prevents patients from getting out into the public. It is extremely difficult to cover these unsightly marks with make-up and bruising can last for a number of weeks, said Dr. Williams. Dr. Williams continued, After just one treatment with the Vbeam, our patients experience dramatic clearance of the injured blood vessels. This treatment is a significant differentiator to our practice and we are excited to finally be able to offer our patients a safe and easy treatment of bruising that works!
