Yes! Vbeam laser is extremely safe and effective, and has even be used successfully for the treatment of infants and children. The skin is protected during treatment by a cooling device, which sprays a cool liquid onto the skin before each laser pulse, cooling the upper layers of the skin for maximum comfort.
