What Is the Excel V Vascular Laser?

The Excel V Vascular Laser, developed by Cutera, is a state-of-the-art device used to treat a variety of vascular and blood vessel-related skin conditions. Some of the cosmetic issues most commonly treated with the laser include facial capillaries, rosacea, age spots, spider veins, cherry angiomas, varicose veins, and red stretch marks.

How Does the Excel V Vascular Laser Work?

The Excel V Vascular Laser works by delivering a high-power green laser to the skin. The heat from the laser is absorbed by the abnormal blood vessels beneath the skin. Those blood vessels then collapse and are sealed shut before being absorbed by the body, which restores the skin’s normal tone and color.
