Vascular skin conditions pose a serious emotional and social problem for millions of Americans. Conditions such as rosacea, spider veins, and facial skin lesions can be seen as a stigma and cause embarrassment.
Excel V is the most advanced aesthetic technology combining two powerfully precise lasers to target and eliminate vascular concerns (redness, unsightly veins) and benign pigmented lesions (age spots, sun spots, discoloration, and scarring) on the face while putting patients’ safety and comfort first.
Excel V laser treatments can also stimulate the skin’s natural processes to reverse the signs of aging and sun damage, promoting a vibrant, healthy looking complexion.
Micro-pulses of laser energy activates collage remodeling to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and target unwanted age/brown spots and facial redness. The overall effect of a treatment series can be quite dramatic.
What Specific Conditions Does Excel V treat?
A number of conditions, including facial veins, rosacea, telangiectasias, port wine stains, and cherry angiomas. The system may also have a cosmetic benefit for patients who have skin lesions or scars from past injuries or surgeries.
How is the procedure performed?
Unlike other procedures, injections or topical anesthesia are not required throughout the duration of the 15-30 minute procedure. Depending on the condition, the handpiece is placed over the affected areas of the skin until the abnormal vessels are diminished. To minimize discomfort and protect the patient’s skin, a proprietary cooling mechanism is used.
What skin types can be treated?
All skin types ranging from very light to very dark can be treated with the Excel V.
How many treatments are needed?
The number of sessions depends on various parameters, including the size, thickness, and color of the vascular lesion.
