Excel V Laser Skin & Vein Treatment Q & A

What is excel V™ laser skin and vein treatment?

The excel V™ laser skin and vein treatment, developed by Cutera, is a state-of-the-art laser that the WCAV Team uses to treat a variety of vascular conditions. A vascular condition can make you self-conscious about your appearance, and laser treatment offers a noninvasive way to address the problem.

This treatment is a good option for people who have:

  • Freckles

  • Spider veins

  • Sunspots

  • Rosacea

  • Scars

How does laser treatment work? 

The excel V Laser, unlike other lasers, uses a green laser that is absorbed by healthy veins. It corrects the color in the problem area by collapsing the vein walls in the bad veins and sealing them shut, leaving you with refreshed-looking skin.

WCAV can treat many sizes of spots, from small freckles to large patches of rosacea, thanks to the excel V laser attachments.

Does laser skin treatment hurt?

One benefit of laser skin treatment using the excel V laser is that it’s relatively pain-free. Some patients feel a sting in the area during the procedure, but the excel V laser uses a cooling mechanism that helps relieve the stinging.

If you have a low pain tolerance, or you’re concerned about the pain you’ll experience, be sure to discuss this with the WCAV Team. He may be able to use an anesthetic and give you a better idea what to expect.

Who is a good candidate for laser skin treatment?

Almost everyone is a good candidate for laser skin treatment. The excel V laser is able to work on various skin tones, so you can have refreshed-looking skin, no matter how light or dark your skin tone.

How many treatments will I need? 

Laser skin treatments, in general, require a few visits to achieve results. Most people will need multiple procedures — often 4-6 — to complete their treatment. After a consultation, the WCAV Team will be able to tell you how much treatment to expect.

Are there any side effects?

While there are no long-term side effects, some patients may experience:

  • Puffiness or swelling

  • Bruising

  • Redness

Most side effects fade within 48 hours of finishing your procedure.
