What is excel V+ Laser?
excel V+ Laser, or excel V+, is a revolutionary new technology that allows us to treat veins from the outside, with no need for any incisions or injections.

Vein Treatment FAQs
excel V+ Laser treatments are not covered by insurance, as they are only used to treat cosmetic spider veins. Medical varicose vein treatments, such as radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, and Varithena, are covered by insurance because they address the underlying cause of vein disease (also known as chronic venous insufficiency), and treat symptoms such as varicose veins, poor circulation, and leg swelling. Many patients are surprised to learn that their vein treatment is covered by insurance due to this underlying medical condition—if you have any symptoms in your legs, we always advise patients to come in for an ultrasound vein evaluation to determine if vein treatment would be covered by insurance.
Our state-of-the-art excel V+ lasers deliver penetrating pulses of light energy directly into spider veins. Using our guided lasers—which give you a unique hot/cool sensation—we’re able to zap the vein and allow it to be reabsorbed by your body.
The laser can treat many vein and vascular conditions on the surface of the skin that you may want to remove. The laser uses different wavelengths—customized to your skin type and vein issues—to improve the look of your legs.
Because excel V+ Laser treatments are completely non-invasive, there are no incisions, no needles, and very little recovery time. Laser procedures are done in our office by our board-certified vein specialists.
Patients receiving excel V+ treatment have said that it feels like quick, tiny stinging and cooling sensations, which can be minimized with local anesthetic. Once finished, patients can walk right out and continue on with their day. After treatment it is best to avoid heavy sunlight for one week.

excel V+ Laser treatments do not use needles or incisions, and side effects are rare. Most commonly, there will be some redness where you’ve received treatment, but this will resolve within a few days. In rare situations, skin hyperpigmentation can occur; however, our team is highly trained to customize the laser wavelength and strength to your unique skin type. As with any laser treatment, we recommend avoiding heavy sunlight for one week following treatment to minimize the risk of side effects
excel V+ Laser procedures are popular for cosmetic vein concerns due to the 100% non-invasive methods used, and quick recovery time. Due to the nature of the laser, excel V+ is only recommended for patients with light and medium skin tones. Generally, this laser treatment is not for serious, debilitating vein diseases which would be best treated with options such as Radiofrequency Ablation.
At your consult, your doctor will discuss treatment options, and determine whether an excel V+ Laser treatment is your best choice.
