Join us for our next VBF Facebook Live Event!

One of the most popular VBF Facebook Live sessions is when Dr. Linda co-hosts with Dr. J. Stuart Nelson, MD, PhD, of the Beckman Laser Institute in California. Not only is Dr. Nelson one of the top Laser experts in the world, he is also the inventor of the Dynamic Cooling Device which is used with all PD lasers to cool the skin during treatment. He has published many articles and conducted numerous research studies on the use of the laser for treating all vascular birthmark types.  Ask him your questions about laser treatment, all types of vascular birthmarks, and the latest in research & treatment in the field.
