Excel V Laser by Cutera

Two powerfully precise lasers are combined in the Excel V laser by Cutera, and used to treat the appearance of rosacea, facial veins, brown spots and spider veins on the legs.

  • Why? Redness of the skin, whether due to rosacea or sun damage, can be difficult to cover with makeup and difficult to treat with medications. Laser treatments target redness and broken blood vessels without damaging the skin. Similarly brown spots related to years of sun damage can be erased or greatly reduced with laser treatment. This can take years off the appearance of someone’s age and creates a youthful glow. Spider veins on the legs commonly appear due to genetics, pregnancy or prolonged standing. They can cause embarrassment and usually get worse with time. Laser is a non-invasive approach to treat small spider veins, in a way that does not utilize any needles or surgery.
  • Are you a candidate? If you flush easily, have a very red face, have freckles or sun spots on the face, chest, arms or hands, you may be a candidate for this treatment. If you are interested in a non-invasive approach to spider vein treatment, you are a candidate for this laser as well.
  • Procedure and Recovery: During laser treatment, you will feel a slight stinging sensation. Typically treatments take a manner of minutes. You will be given a cool compress afterwards. Depending on what is being treated, you might have redness or swelling that lasts anywhere from 1 day to 1 week, and makeup can be worn.
  • Results: Improvement typically can be seen a few weeks after the first treatment. Depending on what is being treated, anywhere from 1-4 sessions may be desired for full results.
