Living Well MedSkin & Laser in Portland/Beaverton uses the latest technology for the treatment of vascular conditions with the Cutera® Excel V™. Using a unique, high power green laser, it precisely treats visible vessels, broken capillaries, spider veins and skin discoloration. The Excel V also has a longer wavelength (1064nm) laser for targeting purple leg veins, periorbital blue veins and deeper vascular structures. Using the two wavelengths, the Excel V heats and eliminates targeted blood vessels and pigmented spots, ultimately restoring normal skin tone. The Excel V has a continuous contact cooling for patient comfort.
Excel V is FDA approved to treat the following vascular conditions:
You cannot be treated if you have had ultra violet (UV) exposure from the sun or sun beds within the past 4 to 6 weeks. Skin can also not be treated two weeks after a spray-on tan application.
Following your laser treatment some redness, a slight burning sensation or bruising may occur. The skin will be cooled to ease these symptoms. You may resume most normal activities immediately. However, it is recommended that you avoid strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours after treatment. Sunscreen is recommended on any treated areas exposed to the sun.
