Excel V™ a versatile, effective laser therapy
Thinking about those brown and red spots on your skin that you find unattractive? In medical terms these are “benign pigmented lesions” and “superficial vascular conditions”.
Excel V™ by Cutera is versatile laser therapy that can precisely treat a variety of skin conditions from sun spots, Rosacea, acne and vascular abnormalities.
It is quickly becoming one of our most popular treatments.
The technology is very flexible, with 2 laser wavelengths that can be used separately or together. Many people have multiple concerns that require different laser wavelengths to achieve correction. Most conditions require 2 or 3 sessions, which last about 15 to 30 minutes each, although the number of visits may vary based on extent of condition.
This treatment can feel like the snap of a rubber band on the skin. The Excel V™ utilizes a cooling treatment tip that provides comfort to the skin before and after pulse delivery. The procedure can be done in 30 minutes, the perfect lunchtime procedure. There is no downtime.
Poikiloderma is a skin condition that consists of areas of hypopigmentation, hyperpigmentation and telangiectasias (dilation of small blood vessels). It is usually seen on neck and chest.
The Excel V™ has signature Laser Genesis™ which applies micro pulses of laser energy that activate collagen remodelling to improve appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, texture, tone and the red scars of acne. It also reduces pore size and shrinks sebaceous glands that are enlarged in acne prone skin.
A series of six treatments will help accelerate clearing of acne and reduce scarring.
Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory condition that affects many people. It is characterized by redness, flushing, tiny bumps or pimples, and enlarged blood vessels. Although there is no cure, there are treatment options that reduce symptoms and improve appearance. In addition to good skin care, sunscreens, topical antibiotics and azelaic acid, Laser Therapy is highly effective in reducing the vascularity that causes redness.
