For patients seeking nonsurgical cosmetic solutions, laser treatments produce some of the best results with minimal downtime. And among these treatments, the Cutera Excel V Laser is the new gold standard – while most lasers take multiple sessions to achieve noticeable results, many procedures performed with the Excel V will require just a single treatment, and results are visible almost immediately. Dual wavelength technology make it not only more effective, but also efficient in treating a wide range of aesthetic flaws.
Due to its versatility and outstanding performance, this laser system is recommended for the treatment of over twenty different conditions, from acne scars and general discoloration to skin tags and spider veins. If you have a blemish, discolored area, lesion, or unsightly veins, chances are, the Excel V can help.
What Sets the Excel V Apart
The Excel V is the only laser currently available that combines two wavelengths of light (532 nm and 1064 nm) for the broadest range of possible applications. The four most common colors of discolored skin spots and lesions are red, blue, purple, and brown, and the Excel V can address them all. Since different types of discoloration are best targeted with lasers of different wavelengths, the Excel V’s revolutionary incorporation of multiple wavelengths makes all the difference when it comes to results. The 532 nm wavelength is most effective in treating superficial vascular and benign pigmented lesions, since it is absorbed at a high rate by oxyhemoglobin and melanin. The 1064 nm wavelength laser’s lower absorption by melanin make it a safe and effective option for treating deep vascular and cutaneous lesions.
In addition to its efficacy in addressing a wide range of skin conditions, the Excel V laser is also designed for optimal patient comfort both during and after the procedure. It comes equipped with a sapphire contact cooling hand piece that improves visibility of the treated site for the physician and produces continual cooling before, during, and after each laser pulse.
