Cutera Excel V Laser for Telangiectasias and Skin Discoloration
There is a safe and effective treatment for telangiectasias (small facial veins) and other benign pigmented lesions (brown spots) on the skin. Excel V Laser provides the most advanced technology to lighten, even erase these spots. This laser can also lighten, diffuse redness to the face and neck, as well as red surgical scars.
This laser system treats tissue by gently sealing vessels with the administration of a unique green laser that heats the abnormal vessels, causing the vein walls to collapse. This is done with the patient only feeling a warm sting for a fraction of a second. It is so gentle that local anesthesia is unnecessary. Brown spots are treated by heating the surface of the lesion and causing a slight crusting that will peel the abnormal discoloration from the skin.
Treatment with the laser varies from patient to patient depending on the type of lesion, size of the affected area, the color of the skin around the lesion and the depth to which the lesion extends beneath the skin’s surface. These various parameters affect the number of treatments required and can be determined based on the patient’s specific condition.
