How does the Excel V Laser Work?
The Excel V offers two different lasers, which each target different skin concerns. In addition, the treatment settings can be customized by depth and according to your skin tone to ensure an optimal outcome. When treating vascular concerns, the laser targets the blood to coagulate the vessel so it collapses. The body then reabsorbs the treated vein over time.
When treating brown spots, the laser targets the melanin in the skin. These spots will usually darken a few days after treatment before sloughing off the skin. Since the lesion is eliminated, the results of an Excel V treatment are long-lasting.
When Will I See Results?
While you might see some initial improvement, full results take some time to develop. Most of our patients will see their outcome within a few days.
How Long is the Recovery Time After Treatment?
There is no downtime after the Excel V procedure. After treatment, you should be able to resume your normal activities right away. You might experience some mild swelling and redness for a day or two, but these side effects are usually minimal. Occasional scabbing can also occur. Protect treated skin from direct sun exposure to avoid potential damage.
