The appearance of irregular blood vessels and redness caused by rosacea are common skin concerns that can be addressed with specialized laser treatment. The most commonly affected areas are the neck, face, chest, and legs.

The Cutera excel V™ laser effectively and safely treats visible blood vessels on the face and body. The device’s state-of-the-art technology allows for each individual treatment session to be custom-tailored to meet your unique needs and goals for maximum safety and effectiveness.

If you have unsightly veins and would like to restore a smoother, more even skin tone and texture, contact board-certified dermatologist Dr. Jessica Krant for a consultation in her New York City office.

The excel V™ Laser  Procedure

During your vascular laser treatment, pulses of laser light safely penetrate the outer layers of skin in order to reach the affected blood vessels below. Targeted blood vessels absorb this energy and are thus destroyed. Your body will naturally remove the damaged tissue, and any resulting bruising or redness will soon diminish.

No anesthesia is required for treatment with the excel V™ laser, and each session typically only takes 15 minutes. While you may see significant improvements after just one treatment, many people require multiple sessions in order to achieve their desired outcome.

Immediately following your vascular laser treatment, you may experience some bruising, redness, or swelling. These symptoms are typically mild and should resolve on their over the next few days. Dr. Krant may suggest that you take a day or two off of work in order to recover from your treatment, but most downtime associated with this procedure is minimal.

excel V™ Results

Following each excel V treatment session, you should notice a significant improvement in your skin tone and the appearance of imperfections, although your final results will reveal themselves once your full round of recommended treatments is complete. Over the next several weeks and months, you will see your desired outcome taking shape.
