At Holcomb - Kreithen Plastic Surgery & Medspa, we offer the most powerful and advanced vascular laser to treat conditions such as spider veins, sunspots, facial veins, and more. Our excel V™ laser from Cutera® is a safe and effective option for treating problem areas such as these for all skin tones.
What is a vascular laser?
A vascular laser such as excel V specifically targets and treats unwanted or abnormal blood vessels in the skin without damaging the surrounding skin. It can be used to treat all areas of the body.
The excel V laser can target and treat:
- Abnormal blood vessels
- Spider veins
- Leg veins
- Port wine stains
- Facial veins
- Periorbital veins
- Some skin lesions
- Some scars
How the excel V laser works
The excel V vascular laser works by emitting a powerful green laser that becomes absorbed by the abnormal blood vessels within the skin. The laser heats these abnormal vessels, causing the walls of the veins collapse and seal shut.
Ergonomically designed with ease of use in mind, the CoolView™ handpiece delivers both the 532 nm and 1064 nm wavelengths, and features a zoom spot-size capability for quick, efficient spot size adjustments from 2 mm to 12 mm. The CoolView integrated sapphire cooling feature optimizes patient comfort and safety by providing continuous cooling.
Specifically designed for Cutera’s signature Laser Genesis procedure, the Genesis V™ handpiece delivers gentle micro-pulses that target micro-vasculature and stimulate collagen remodeling, improving the appearance of wrinkles. Redness is also diffused, and other noticeable signs of aging are improved with no downtime required. A series of treatments is required for optimal results.
