Cutera® Excel V Laser

Excel VMany people who suffer from vascular lesions or discoloration, such as birthmarks, broken blood vessels, acne scars, and spider veins, say that these conditions can contribute to feelings of embarrassment, isolation, and even depression. In the past, most long-term treatment options included uncomfortable surgical procedures or injections, and many people chose to live with their conditions, often turning to makeup or other temporary measures. Today, Cutera's Excel V laser can quickly and comfortably diminish the appearance of many of these conditions without breaking the skin. At CaloSpa®, we're excited to offer this option to our skin care patients in Louisville and Lexington, KY.

The Procedure

During a treatment with the Excel V laser, a qualified member of our medical team positions the handpiece over the treatment area. While the laser energy is administered, Excel V also uses a unique cooling system to maintain patient comfort. No topical anesthesia or injections are required. Most treatments last between 15 and 30 minutes. Following a treatment, some redness and swelling may persist for several hours, but most patients feel comfortable returning to their regular activities immediately.

Often Asked

How does Excel V work?

Excel V's powerful green laser targets the abnormal blood vessels that cause discoloration, lesions, and birthmarks. The blood vessels absorb the laser's heat and energy, significantly reducing discoloration and restoring the patient's natural skin tone. Excel V is fully adjustable, and its settings can be customized to suit the unique needs of a variety of patients. Unlike other lasers, such as Fraxel®, Excel V was developed specifically to treat vascular lesions - not resurface the skin.

How many treatments will I need?

Many patients need only a single treatment to reach their desired results, while others may require a series of treatments. During your consultation, Dr. Calobrace or Dr. Mays evaluates the area you'd like to target and assigns you a more specific treatment plan.
