Understanding How Cutera® Excel V™ Laser Treatment Works
Using a device emitting a high-power green laser, Cutera® Excel V™ is a laser treatment that targets and heats abnormal blood vessels in the skin. After several treatments, these abnormal blood vessels will eventually collapse and seal shut, rendering them less visible. The Cutera Excel V also can target pigment within the epidermis causing fragmentation and reduction of the skin’s discoloration. No injections or topical anesthetics are required and many patients report minimal discomfort afterward. Each procedure is typically 30 – 45 minutes in length, and the number of required treatments will vary upon the size, thickness, color, and type of lesion being treated.
What You Can Expect from Cutera® Post-Treatment Care and Results
Some patients may see noticeable results after just several treatments with the Cutera® Excel V™ laser, while others may require 4-6 treatments. Minimal downtime is usually experienced after this procedure, which may include swelling, redness, and possible bruising. You should begin to notice visible improvements within 2-6 weeks after a treatment series.
