THE NEW GOLD STANDARD FOR TREATING ALL RED LESIONS
The Excel V 532 wavelength is 5 times better absorbed by the red component in blood (oxyhemoglobin) than the prior gold standard – VBeam.
There are 2 wavelenghts—532 and 1064nm—which allows for a wider spectrum of treatment options, less treatment sessions, and with higher degree of safety.
Conditions treatable with the Excel V include:
- Poikiloderma of Civatte
- Cherry Angiomas
- Port Wine Stains
- Diffuse Redness
- Telangiectasias (broken capillaries)
- Leg Veins including Spider Veins and Reticular Veins (no injections, no compression hose)
- Blue Veins around the Eyes and Temple
- Hair Removal in Dark Skin Types
- Venous Lakes
Typically, 2-3 treatments are needed to treat most conditions. They can be done as soon as 2-3 weeks for everything except the leg veins which require 4-6 week intervals.
Scars are best treated as early as possible and when they are pink/red in color. Bruises are best treat early as well, when they are red or blue – the first few days. It will diminish the duration of the bruise to about 3 days with 1-2 treatments. Port wine stains require more than the usual 2-3 treatments, sometimes 6-10 are needed.
WHAT CAN BE EXPECTED DURING AND AFTER TREATMENT WITH THE EXCEL V LASER?
The treatment feels like a very short snap from a rubber band. It is tolerable without any anesthesia. Afterwards, there will be redness of the skin for up to 24 hours, and sometimes longer. There is swelling around the eyes if extensive work in the upper cheek was performed. Elevation of 2-3 pillows during sleeping will help this. Swelling can last up to 3 days and rarely requires steroids for diminishing it.
