What is the cost of V-beam treatment for post-acne red marks?
I have contacted most of the clinics offering v-beam as part of their services, but the prices I’m quoted are quite exorbitant. I noticed in the guide that the general cost per session is $200-$400. Are there any recommendations for clinics that charge somewhere in that ballpark?
Yes, the V-beam (or pulse-dye laser) is the most effective for post-acne red marks.
Brown pigmentation can be addressed with Nd:Yag (Q-switched) laser or chemical peels.
Topical creams such as Retin A and hydroquinones can also be helpful for both types of pigmentation (I’m a fan of the former). This will be your cheapest option.
I can recommend Dr Irenaeus Liu Han Ping (www.centreforcosmetic.com) – very friendly and experienced – he has an interest in treating acne and acne scars. Charges are all reasonable too – will definitely be within that price range per session.
