Excel V is the ideal vein laser therapy. It is an advanced technology that uses a modern machine to treat both the superficial and deep veins on the face and legs on both men and women of all skin tones. It is a combination of a supreme laser wavelength together with the most adaptable parameters to give an excellent vascular laser system. It can treat a wide scope of vessel problems from the smallest spider vein to the deep blue reticular veins in a fast, effective and safe way.
Aside from the veins, Excel V can also treat other conditions like Port Wine stain blemishes, Rosacea, Facial Telangiectasia, Hermangiomas, Scars and Keloids, Venous Lake (purple lesion on lips), Sebaceous Hyperplasia (dilated oil glands), Freckles, Sun Damaged Pigmentation, Warts, and Cherry Angiomas.
This procedure uses pulses of light energy that coagulates the blood within the veins that later on destroys the vessel that the body will then reabsorb.
The practitioner will place the Excel V hand piece on the targeted area on the skin until the abnormal vessels disappears. This does not require topical anaesthesia or injections. But to lessen the discomfort during the treatment, as well as to protect the skin of the patient, Excel V uses its built in cooling mechanism.
Risks and Complications
- Slight reddening of the skin
- Swelling of the skin
However they rarely occur due to strict guidelines provided by the manufacturer; these are also common in other laser procedures.
