Vascular Laser

ExcelV in New York City

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.

excel V™ Recovery

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.

Frequently Asked Questions about ExcelV

Is ExcelV laser better than VBeam?

VBeam and Excel V are not better or worse than each other. They use different wavelengths to target slightly different colors of vascular (blood vessel) issues, and are often used together on the same day. VBeam is a Pulsed Dye Laser with a wavelength of 595nm and Excel V contains a KTP laser with a wavelength of 532nm and a long pulsed Nd:YAG 1064nm laser. Both can help with some vascular issues and possibly also some brown pigment issues. It’s best to see a board-certified dermatologist to get an individualized consultation, because everyone’s skin is unique and the choice of device is specific to your skin and your targets.

Which is better IPL or ExcelV laser?

IPL and Excel V are not better or worse than each other. They each specialize in different issues, and can sometimes be used together, even on the same day. IPL (intense pulsed light) is technically not a true laser but uses filters to limit the wavelength of light delivered to the skin for the purpose of aiming at certain targets (brown or red). IPL uses a flashlamp technology and not a single thin beam, which has the effect of the light not being able to penetrate as deeply. But while many think this makes IPL “safer” than laser, it is important to understand that many people are burned and permanently scarred by improper IPL use by someone who does not fully respect its power. Excel V is a true laser with a collimated beam of a single wavelength and the device can deliver either 532nm or 1064nm wavelengths, which can target various vascular and potentially some pigmented lesions. The best thing to do is to see your board-certified dermatologist and get a personal consultation, because there is no one device that fits all and laser risks are high.
