Whether superficial or deep, vascular skin conditions and benign skin lesions can result in self-consciousness and affect an individual’s quality of life. Our state-of-the-art excel® V laser system uses a high-power green laser to dissipate abnormal blood vessels and pigment for all skin tones to even out the skin from head to toe.

About

From leg veins to facial redness, this treatment can target it all, with minimal downtime. Depending on your condition and aesthetic needs, we will customize a treatment plan for you. Red, purple, blue, and brown: no matter what your vascular lesions look like, we can provide an effective clarifying treatment that will help you see your skin in a new light!

Procedure

The Cutera excel® V Laser safely and effectively treat the tiny, superficial veins and the deeper blue leg veins in men and women of all skin tones. By delivering a pulse of light energy into the vessel, the blood within the vein coagulates, eventually destroying the vessel and redirecting the blood flow to veins deeper below the skin’s surface. The number of treatments necessary depends on the size, number and color of the vessels being targeted. Some patients experience a stinging sensation while the pulses are being delivered, however, after the treatment, there is minimal to no discomfort.

Benefits

For most cases, the Cutera Excel®V provides quick treatments with best results within a few days. The Excel® V laser system is a 3-in-1 treatment that can work on veins, redness, and pigment all in the same session, extremely customizable so as to not just work superficially, but into deeper conditions as well. The high level of customization is what makes Excel V so effective at treating so many different conditions quickly, within a few sessions.

FAQs

The Cutera excel® V treats vascular skin conditions by administering a unique high power green laser that is absorbed by the abnormal blood vessels in the skin. The laser will heat these vessels until they are removed.

Minimal preparation is required, but you may be asked not to limit sun exposure, including tanning beds, and to stop using creams containing retinol, as this affects skin sensitivity.

Unlike other procedures, injections or a topical anesthesia are not required. The procedure typically takes 15 to 30 minutes and the device is placed over the affected area until the abnormal vessels diminish.

Most sessions only take 5 to 10 minutes, but can take up to 45.

Results are usually visible immediately after the first session. The number of sessions depends on the size, number, and color of veins being treated.

Cutera excel® V treatments can feel similar to a pinprick. Depending on the procedure, a cold treatment tip will be used to protect the skin and provide comfort to the area. A topical anesthetic may also be used.

Redness and/or swelling can be expected and will resolve within a few days. Typically, patients can return to normal activities immediately.
