Excel® V+ Laser
The CUTERA excel V+ laser is a new state-of-the art dual wavelength laser that treats a wide range of benign superficial and deep vascular skin conditions like facial redness, dilated capillaries, spider veins, varicose veins, pigment issues, and skin revitalization concerns. This laser is also effective for hair removal on all areas of the body. It is capable of precision targeting and uses cooling technology for comfort without compromising efficacy.
What conditions can be treated with the excel V+ laser?
The excel V+ laser treats more than twenty skin problems including:
- abnormal, dilated, and broken capillaries near the skin’s surface
- diffuse facial redness
- spider veins on the face and lower extremities
- periorbital veins that create under-eye dark circles
- leg veins
- age spots
- brown spots
- red spots
- dark spots called solar lentigines caused by sun damage
- acne scars
- colored scars
- surgical scars
- enlarged pores
- wrinkles and other noticeable signs of aging by stimulating collagen production
How does the excel V+ Laser work?
The laser selectively targets the pigments in colored and vascular lesions. The laser light energy is absorbed by the target and converted into heat energy destroying the targeted lesion or blood vessel without damaging surrounding tissues. Surface discolorations and lesions can usually be obliterated with one treatment, while deeper discolorations and lesions may require more than one treatment. When used for hair removal, the laser energy is carried by the hair shaft to deactivate the hair follicle.
Treatments are adjusted to the condition to be treated providing short pulses of laser energy for superficial discolorations, and longer wave lengths for deeper conditions like leg veins. The laser spot size is also easily adjusted to treat only the target with improved precision. Because of the ability to customize treatment multiple conditions can be treated during the same appointment without the need for multiple different technologies.
Your aesthetic consultation
During your consultation with cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Zeena, she will review your medical history and discuss your aesthetic concerns and goals. She will create a treatment plan to address your needs and explain the procedures she recommends.
The excel V+ laser procedure does not require pretreatment with topical and local anesthesia because of the cooling technology within the laser. After treatment the area may be red and swollen and should resolve quickly.
