Excel V combines two powerful and precise lasers to target and eliminate lesions that are red, brown, blue, and purple. It has sapphire contact cooling to keep skin safe before, during, and after each pulse. This laser by Cutera is the most powerful laser available to treat broken blood vessels on the face and body and to treat leg veins. It is indicated to treat all skin types.
The versatility of the Excel V allows Dr. Kate Zibilich Holcomb to tailor treatments to each patient. The clear window through which the laser energy is delivered allows for real-time evaluation of patient response so that the settings can be adjusted for maximal response. Dr. Holcomb at Pure Dermatology has experience using the Excel V in all skin types and ethnicities.
Excel V can be used to treat the following:
- Folliculitis or hair bumps
- Laser hair removal (small areas like face, upper lip, arm-pits, neck, sideburns)
- Sun damage
- Age spots
- Lentigines (brown spots)
- Telangiectasias (broken blood vessels)
- Leg veins
- Unwanted pigment
- Cherry angiomas
- Diffuse Redness
- Port wine stains
- DPN’s (sometimes falsely referred to as “moles”) bruising seen after fillers, surgery, or injury
The results and recovery will depend on the settings chosen by Dr. Holcomb for your treatment. Swelling and darkening can occur so it is important to discuss your limitations before treatment. It does not compromise the skin so you can put on makeup or sunscreen immediately after treatment.
