excel V™ Vascular Laser Sarasota

The Excel laser has become the gold standard in treating many vascular conditions including the ability to safely and effectively treat high pressure vessels, deep veins, and superficial veins on the face for men and women of all skin tones. If you have visible veins or other vascular irregularities, Excel vascular treatments may be the solution.

Excel Laser Therapy

Cutera’s Excel V is a state-of-the-art dual wavelength (1,064 nm and 532 nm) laser system that effectively treats a wide variety of vascular skin conditions.

Excel laser therapy treats superficial vascular conditions by administering high power green laser (532 nm) light that is absorbed by abnormal blood vessels. This laser heats the undesired blood vessels, causing them to collapse and seal. Over time, the blood vessels will no longer be visible. Deeper and/or larger vessels may require treatment with the 1,064 nm laser.

Excel V laser treatments can be used for a wide variety of conditions, such as:

  • Angiomas (red spots that may be raised or beneath the surface of the skin)
  • Facial blush / redness
  • Facial veins
  • Leg veins
  • Spider veins
  • Red birthmarks or port wine stains
  • Red raised scars
  • Rosacea

Avoid tanning or self-tanning lotion for one month prior to treatment. Do not wear makeup on the day of treatment. Any treatments that may irritate your skin, such as waxing, should also be avoided for one or two weeks before treatment.

Minor redness, swelling and mild bruising may occur after treatment. While visibile improvement may be immediately apparent for smaller blood vessels, larger blood vessels typically darken and then gradually disappear over several months. Incremental improvement is expected with facial redness/rosacea – although significant improvement may occur after the first session several treatments may be required.

Are You a Candidate?

Unlike some laser treatments, Excel V laser therapy is safe and effective for all skin tones, including light,darkand tanned skin. Good candidates for this procedure are men or women with noticeable vascular conditions such as rosacea, port wine stains, spider veins or facial veins that make them self-conscious. Schedule a consultation today to learn if Excel V laser therapy is a good option to help you achieve the results you are looking for.


Will treatments hurt?

The Excel V laser uses a chill tip to rapidly cool the skin before the laser energy is delivered. This minimizes any discomfort and protects the skin. Most patients feel a slight stinging sensation briefly when the energy pulses are delivered.

What are the side effects of Excel therapy?

There are few side effects with this treatment, although some patients experience redness and some swelling at the treatment site. This typically dissipates within a day. Some patients may also experience bruising.

How soon will I see results?

The majority of patients find most treated veins have significant improvement visible within 2 to 6 weeks, although the final results may not be seen for months.

How many treatments are necessary?

The number of treatments depends on the size, color and thickness of the vascular lesion that will be treated. In many cases, patients see dramatic improvement after a single treatment, and many do not require repeat sessions.

A new approach to treating vascular conditions

Now men and women alike are making unsightly facial and leg veins a thing of the past. With the most advanced technology, the Excel V vascular laser can safely and effectively treat a wide range of vascular conditions on men and women of all skin tones.

How does Excel V work?

Excel V™ | Sarasota | FLExcel V, which was developed by Cutera, is a new laser system for providing treatment of a variety of vascular skin conditions. Many skin conditions manifest in the form of broken or abnormal blood vessels in the skin, as is the case with rosacea, in which the facial blood vessels dilate excessively causing redness and flushing. Excel V treats vascular conditions 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.

Laser Genesis is a non-contact laser skin rejuvenation treatment in which the laser quickly warms the skin to stimulate new collagen production, remodeling of existing collagen and reduction of excessive superficial blood vessels if present. With a series of treatments patients may experience firming of the skin, decreased pore size, wrinkle improvement, softening of lip lines and decreased redness of the skin. The treatments do not require anesthesia or downtime.
