Excel V+ Laser by Cutera
The Excel V+ is the new gold standard for vascular treatment. Skin Atelier by Dr Turner, is the only clinic in Newcastle with the newest technology from Cutera. The advancements of the Excel V+ bring with it 50% more power, 2x faster treatments, and superior contact cooling, resulting in a more efficient and comfortable treatment experience for you!
How does it work?
Featuring two powerful, precise wavelengths to target and eliminate unwanted reds, browns, purples and blues on the face and body. The combination of high-performance dual wavelengths (532/1064) and the proprietary long-pulsed Nd:YAG technology provides faster, more efficient clearing of targeted lesions.
The highly absorbed 532 nm wavelength is effective on a variety of superficial vascular lesions. It is especially effective on conditions including rosacea, diffuse redness, and telangiectasias.
While the 1064 nm Nd:YAG wavelength is effective on deeper, darker vascular lesions including leg and periorbital veins as well as venous lakes and venous malformations.
Excel V works by administering a unique high power green laser that is absorbed by the abnormal blood vessels in the skin. The laser heats the abnormal vessels causing the vein walls to collapse and seal shut. Over time, the vessels will no longer be visible. Several treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired result.
What can the Excel V + treat?
It can treat more than 20 aesthetic and dermatological skin concerns including;
- Diffuse redness
- Veins, facial
- Veins, leg
- Veins, periorbital
- Port wine stains
- Venous malformations
- Inflammatory acne
- Benign pigmented lesions
- Age/brown spots
- Small area hair removal
- Acne scars
What are the benefits?
Unlike other ablative, invasive laser procedures, the Laser V+ does not require topical anesthesia. The large spot size results in a speedier treatment time, and higher energy output results in a highly effective machine that requires fewer treatments than its predecessor to achieve optimal results. It treats more than 20 skin conditions, heating the abnormal vessels, and ultimately restoring normal skin tone and color.
What can I expect during treatment?
Firstly, your skin will be cleansed, removing all makeup, dirt and oil, and then goggles will be placed over your eyes. As the laser is activated, most patients experience a mild stinging/heat sensation as the pulses of energy are delivered through the handpiece Generally, this heat is well tolerated, and most people report it to be minimally painful. The use of the premium sapphire contact cooling assists in keeping you comfortable as possible for the duration of the treatment. The treatment usually lasts no more then 15- 30 minutes.
What can I expect following treatment?
Some patients may experience slight swelling and redness to the treated area. Occasionally, bruising may occur, and in rare cases some blistering may form. Most patients find that the majority of treated veins show significant improvement within 2 to 6 weeks, however your final result may not be apparent for several months.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments required really depends on the size, thickness and colour of the vascular lesion. Superficial lesions are usually easiest to treat and some patients experience a significant improvement after just one treatment. With other patients two or more treatments may be needed to achieve the desired results. A customised treatment plan will be made by one of Registered Nurses.
