In a few short treatments, the excel V+ laser safely and effectively treats skin concerns, giving your skin a clear, even look.
The excel V+ Laser was specially designed to treat imperfections, and the factors that age you; addressing wrinkles, age spots, excessive redness, enlarged pores, and uneven skin texture.
In the past, some laser therapies were considered risky for people with darker skin, but Cutera’s excel V+ laser is safe and effective for all skin types including dark, light or tanned skin.
There are approximately 20 different indications that Excel V+ can treat on ALL skin types.
Some of these include:
At Victoria’s, our trained clinicians assess each person’s skin needs before treatment. We can make recommendations to treat your specific skin concerns, and tailor a course of treatments to achieve your goals.
The excel V+ laser treatment works through the targeted application of clinically proven laser wavelengths. We target these wavelengths to specific areas of skin concern, and work to diminish uneven tone and stimulate rejuvenation.
This allows the excel V+ to address skin imperfections and stimulate collagen regrowth by gently heating the upper dermis below the surface of the skin. This process smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles, while dilated veins and capillaries receive extra heat to reduce redness and promote an even complexion. Throughout the treatment, the laser safely zeros in on areas of concern, such as the blood vessels that are a hallmark of rosacea and spider veins, and destroys them while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.
The excel V+ treatment takes about 10 or 15 minutes and a series of sessions may be needed for optimal results.
The treatment feels like a quick rubber band snap sensation, but a built in cooling mechanism helps minimise any discomfort.
Recovery time is minimal, but there can be some redness, swelling or bruising that lasts for 24-48 hours.
You can see results from the treatment quickly, with visible improvements noticeable in two to six weeks. We will generally recommend a course of several treatments, and final results are visible within a few months.
The number of treatments varies for each person, and depends on various parameters. It will differ depending on the skin concern being treated, though significant improvements can be seen after only a few treatments.
Most people will experience a slight stinging sensation during treatment, though the excel V+ has an inbuilt cooling system which minimises discomfort.
Following the treatment, discomfort is minimal to none.
Due to the advanced technology used in the excel V+ laser, there are minimal side effects while the laser precisely targets the area being treated. However, people commonly experience slight reddening and swelling of the skin post-treatment, which generally subsides in 24 to 48 hours.
