Looking for Perfecta Laser
 
I live near Louisville, KY and I am looking for a Perfecta LAser near me. I just had an older version of the VBeam done this week with a lot of bruising and I am so excited at the thought of less bruising with the Perfecta. I am willing to travel even in a few hours away (Cincinnati, TN, etc). Does anyone know a Perfecta near KY or in KY?

Is the Perfecta really as wondeful as it sounds?

There's a woman here, Glenda, that can probably help you find what you're looking for. I'll email her and direct her attention to your post.

Hi. I believe the Perfecta is the VBeam laser made by Candela. Did you have treatment done at U of L or at UK Med Center in Lexington? They have the most up to date equipment in the state. They use the VBeam on my grandson at UK.

Also, the doctor's experience with laser treatment is a factor, as well as the thickness, location, etc. of the individual's pws. My grandson sees Dr. Henry Vasconez at UK. Who is your doctor and which VBeam did they use?

I believe the Perfecta is the newest laser from Candela. It is supposed to result in less bruising than the traditional Vbeam. I have emailed Dr. Vasconez but he has not responded. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks.
