Cutera's Excel V laser

What to Expect

Like many of our skin treatments here at Laser Aesthetic, the Cutera Excel V laser has little to no side effects — the most common being a slight localized swelling or redness that goes away in less than a couple hours. To treat your vascular lesions, the Laser Genesis hand piece is focused directly on the areas of concern. The light is then absorbed by blood vessels just under the skin and these blood vessels then become reabsorbed by your body, ultimately reducing the surface appearance.* Due to the color of the Laser Genesis hand piece, we’re able to target skin spots that are red, purple or blue in color.

What Should I do Pre and Post-Treatment?

Do not sun tan or apply self-tanners up to 4 weeks before your treatment. We also recommend avoiding any treatment that may irritate the area in question, such as waxing or chemical peels, 1-2 weeks prior to your appointment. Don’t forget to not wear makeup on the day of your Excel V treatment. After your appointment, avoid sun exposure and use SPF sunscreen to prevent future sun damage. Avoid excessive heat such as saunas and hot tubs for 1-2 days as well as skin treatments containing salicylic acids.

How many treatments are needed?

The Cutera Excel V laser treatment takes no time at all, with most treatment sessions lasting anywhere from just 5 to 10 minutes! For those who have a large number of vascular concerns, treatments may be upwards of 30 to 45 minutes in order to cover the areas in question. Only 1 to 2 treatment sessions are needed due to the laser’s high efficiency and precision.* Keep in mind that depending on the size, thickness and color of your skin lesion, you may need more than 2 treatments to achieve the desired results.* Most patients see noticeable results within 48 hours post treatment.*

What Does Excel V Treat?

The Excel V treats up to 20 different types of skin conditions, the most common being age spots, sun spots, discoloration, acne scars, rosacea, facial or leg veins, cherry angiomas, port wine stains, spider veins, and even large pores and wrinkles.* Our laser treatment essentially treats or reduces any uneven skin texture or skin discoloration on the face, neck, legs, arms and elsewhere on the body.* Note that no two skin concerns are the same, so it’s important to talk to our skin treatment specialists during your consultation visit.
