The Excel V is a combination KTP 532 nm and ND:YAG 1064 nm laser that safely and efficiently treats a variety of vascular lesions including telangiectasias, broken blood vessels, angiomas, vascular birthmarks, spider veins, and leg veins. It can also reduce facial redness associated with rosacea or sun damage and can treat solar lentigos or sun spots. Treatments are well tolerated with minimal downtime. While improvement is generally seen after the first treatment, most patients will require multiple sessions for best results.
What is the Excel V laser?
With a powerful combination of high-performance dual wavelengths (532/1064) and Cutera’s proprietary long-pulsed Nd:YAG technology, Excel V provides a safe, fast, and efficient treatment system for a wide range of skin discolorations and vascular skin conditions.
The 532 nm wavelength is effective on a variety of superficial vascular lesions, while the 1064 nm Nd:YAG wavelength expands the system’s capabilities to include deeper, darker vascular lesions. Excel V works by delivering pulses of light energy that target the blood within a vein, causing it to coagulate. The treated vessel is then reabsorbed by the body. Blood flow is redirected to veins deep below the skin’s surface, eliminating the appearance of spots, veins, redness, and other skin discolorations.

Benefits of Excel V
Versatile and customizable
Treats both superficial blemishes and deeper vascular lesions
Eliminates red spots and visible vessels
Does not require downtime
Treats vascular concerns in 1-2 sessions
Produces natural-looking results
Unlike other laser procedures, Excel V does not require any form of anesthesia. However, patients have the option to use a topical numbing cream before treatment to ensure a more comfortable experience. Your dermatologist will place the Excel V handpiece over the treatment area where pulses of light are directed at vascular irregularities in your skin. To minimize discomfort, the device comes with a proprietary cooling mechanism that produces continuous cooling before, during, and after the laser pulse. The actual treatment may be completed in as little as 5-10 minutes. Treatment time will vary depending on your skin condition and treatment area size but at most, a complete session should last no more than 45 minutes.

Excel V Questions & Answers

A: Some patients may experience mild redness or swelling, similar to a sunburn. These symptoms are usually minimal and should subside within a day or two. These side effects shouldn’t keep you from your normal activities.
Q: How long will my results last?
A: Since Excel V eliminates visible vessels or age spots, the results will be long-lasting. However, you can develop more veins and spots over time. Touch-up treatments every one to three years are recommended to maintain results. To lower your risk for a recurrence, always wear sun protection and ask your dermatologist for ways you can prevent future veins from forming.

Following the treatment, discomfort is minimal to none. A topical anesthetic may be also available to improve your treatment experience. Overall, Excel V is a well-tolerated procedure.
Q: What is recovery from an Excel V treatment like?
A: There is no downtime after the Excel V procedure. After your session, you should be able to immediately resume your normal activities.

Frowning, squinting, and smiling leave behind fine lines and wrinkles over time. Neuromodulators can be injected directly with a tiny needle into the muscles responsible and work by reducing crease-causing contractions.
As we mature, loss of volume leads to wrinkles, prominent nasolabial folds, thinned lips, exaggerated jowls, and marionette lines. The natural deterioration of underlying bone and soft tissue leaves a hollowed, aged appearance. Fillers injected below the skin surface can correct age-related volume loss.
