    Default V-Beam and IPL Scarring

    Hi. I have been thinking about trying V-Beam, but I'm really scared about the possibility of scarring. Does anyone
    know about the likelihood of scarring with V-Beam? I'm looking for percents. Is it very rare, as in 1 to 2 percent, orhigher. Have there been any studies ? Also, which is less likely to scar, V-Beam or IPL?

    Let me just say this -- before you have either, whether at a "laser spa" or at a derm's, they give you a form to sign saying that you're aware of the dangers.
