Cutera Excel V™
The Excel V laser is used at The Menkes Clinic & Surgery Center in the treatment of vascular lesions. There are a number of concerns that can be successfully treated with this laser, including rosacea, angiomas, port wine stains, red birthmarks, various types of scarring, and facial veins. Cosmetic improvements are also achievable with the Excel V, which improves skin tone and texture, reducing the appearance of sun damage, fine lines, and wrinkles.
How it works
The technology behind the Cutera Excel V laser is innovative and efficient in the treatment of a wide variety of conditions. The unique high-powered green laser light treats visible vessels with incredible precision. This light is also absorbed by deeper blood vessels within the dermis layer of skin, where coagulation and subsequent reabsorption of these vessels occurs. The longer wavelength of the Excel V makes it an ideal treatment option for the elimination of deep vascular structures, veins around the eyes, and purple leg veins. Built for the highest level of safety, the laser cools throughout the entire treatment process, before and after every pulse of light.
What to expect
Treatment with the Excel V laser is typically uncomplicated with few side effects, if any. The most common side effects include mild swelling and redness in the treatment area. Some patients also notice slight bruising. Cutera Excel V laser treatments typically allow patients to resume their standard activity level very quickly. Depending on the condition treated with the Excel V laser, there may be specific post-treatment recommendations.
