Excel V™ Treatment for Age Spots & Vascular Lesions

Treatment for face capillaries, veins and age spots with our state-of-the-art excel V™ laser by CUTERA® can do wonders to create a more even skin tone and give your complexion a youthful and beautiful appearance. This procedure can effectively eliminate neck and face redness and capillaries like telangiectasias, rosacea, and discoloration such as dark “age spots,” which can be difficult to cover up with cosmetics. Excel V can also be used for treating spider veins on your legs.

What Is the excel V Laser?

The excel V Vascular Laser System is the latest state-of-the-art “gold standard” safe and effective treatment for a variety of blood vessel or vascular skin conditions such as rosacea, facial capillaries, spider veins, age spots, reddish scars, red stretch marks, and cherry angiomas. It can be used to treat any skin type – from very light to very dark.

The excel V uses a non-invasive high-power green laser light, which is absorbed by abnormal blood vessels located just beneath your skin’s surface and age spots on the surface of your skin. Unlike older-style laser treatments which burst the blood vessels causing bruising, the excel V-treated vessels collapse, are sealed shut, and are absorbed by your body. The lack of bruising reduces down time. The laser light heats and removes the age spots and reduces abnormal blood vessels, which cause undesirable red or purple spots on your skin. The excel V laser utilizes a unique cooling system for pain control during the treatment which avoids the need for anesthetic injections or topical anesthesia, maximizing your comfort.

The excel V laser is adjusted to match the specific skin condition being treated. This customization not only provides greater precision, but greater effectiveness also means fewer treatments may be required.

What Conditions Can the excel V Laser Treat?

Vascular Lesions

Vascular lesions are areas of overgrown or enlarged blood vessels. These vary in color from red to purple and range in size from a spot to larger areas of the face and body. Visible purplish veins are commonly seen on the legs and face. Red capillaries called telangiectasias are often seen on the face, base of the nostrils and cheeks and are difficult to cover up with cosmetics. These lesions may be seen at birth or are acquired during your life through overexposure to sun, as a result of hormone or contraceptive use or the natural process of aging. Scars and stretch marks can also have reddish discoloration that can be effectively treated with the excel V laser. Small diameter “spider veins” located on the legs are also effectively treated.

Pigmented Lesions

Pigmented lesions are light tan to brown and black areas of skin discoloration on your face and body. These are known as age spots, liver spots, freckles and brown birthmarks. These are seen at birth or acquired through overexposure to sun or the process of aging. Be sure to have these examined by your regular doctor or our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Steven Yarinsky, to be certain that they are not suspicious for melanoma – a form of skin cancer. Benign (not cancerous) pigmented lesions can be effectively treated with the excel V laser.
