And here he was this past weekend 14 days since the procedure.* I think he is healing nicely.

(He was being goofy in the pic)

Hi Rosie,

Looking good...

What laser did the doctor use for the laser treatment? I thought he was using the V-Beam, but it does not look like the V-Beam treatment I have had. It exactually reminds me of the first PDL that I had used back in 85. The eraser size zaps is what I am talking about. V-Beam is a bigger area zaps.

Thanks,

Hank

Hank,
I thought it was the V-beam that they were using. I am going to call them and double check tomorrow.

Is there anyway that they could make the size where the laser hits larger or smaller. Sams spot where the laser hit remind me of a fat purple marker.

They are suppose to be that way. That means they penatrated good. They ussually can make it deeper or shollower rather then the width. Did the laser sound like a air compriser? Like ch ch ch ch. That is the cooling device on the V-Beam.

Hi !! Your son is adorable.
The V Beam has a 5 mm,7mm or 10mm spot size. The cooling and pulse duration can also be varied. The wavelength is 595 nm.
My daughter has been treated with the V Beam and for the first year of her life she did not even bruise. Not a bruise on her but she had great fading.
Everyone is different and responds differently.
He looks wonderful. Good luck and happy healing and fading to your little guy.

Hi. Samuel is adorable. He looks like he is healing very well. Austin's spots look the same after way after his treatment. He is also treated with the V-Beam. He just had treatment #7 yesterday.

The dots look exactly like Claire's after laser. She has the v-beam with 7mm dots.

Great fading to Samuel
