How does the excel V+ Laser work?
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.
What can I expect with excel V+ Laser treatment?
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.
What actually happens during treatment?
- The vein specialist will outline the problematic veins.
- You and the specialist will put on pairs of laser-protective safety glasses.
- Using the excel V+ Laser, your specialist will use a pen-like tool to zap away the target veins.
- In under 30 minutes, your treatment will be done.
- Because excel V+ is a 100% external treatment, you can resume your normal activities right away.
Does excel V+ Laser have side effects?
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
Is an excel V+ Laser treatment right for me?
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.
