Excel V by Cutera uses a laser to treat vascular skin conditions on the face and body, ideal for those with sun-damaged skin, broken blood vessels, unsightly veins, brown spots, rosacea or background redness. Only one or two treatment sessions is usually required, and most procedures only take 5 to 10 minutes, though some may take up to 45 minutes.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What do treatments feel like?
A: Treatments can feel similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin. A topical anesthetic may be available to improve your treatment experience.
Q: Are there any side effects? What about downtime?
A: Redness and/or swelling can be expected and will resolve within a few days. Treated brown spots will darken and slough off within 3 to 6 days. For full face treatments, swelling will peak 24 to 48 hours post treatment and usually resolves within a few days. Typically, you can wear makeup and return to normal activities immediately.
