Excel V is the ideal vein laser therapy. It is an advanced technology that uses a modern machine to treat both the superficial and deep veins on the face and legs on both men and women of all skin tones.
It is a combination of a supreme laser wavelength together with the most adaptable parameters to give an excellent vascular laser system. It can treat a wide scope of vessel problems from the smallest spider vein to the deep blue reticular veins in a fast, effective and safe way.
Aside from the veins, Excel V can also treat other conditions like Port Wine stain blemishes, Rosacea, Facial Telangiectasia, Hermangiomas, Scars and Keloids, Venous Lake (purple lesion on lips), Sebaceos Hyperplasia (dilated oil glands), Freckles, Sun Damaged Pigmentation, Warts, and Cherry Angiomas.
The Excel V device uses pulses of light energy to coagulate the blood within the veins and destroys the vessel which the body then reabsorbs. The practitioner places the Excel V handpiece on the targeted area of skin with the visible veins until the abnormal vessels disappear. Excel V has a built in cooling mechanism and as such the treatment is completely tolerable and does not require topical anaesthesia or injections.
Risks and Complications
- Slight reddening of the skin
- Swelling of the skin
- Bruising on some patients
- Blistering on some patients.
These side effects are rare and only occur on a handful of patients.
Q. When do we see results?
A. Results are immediate.
Q. Is the treatment painful?
A. Some may feel a stinging sensation while the pulses of energy are transported through the hand piece. For those who have very low pain tolerance a local anesthesia or numbing cream may be applied, though these are rarely required. After the treatment, the patient may feel minimal pain.
Q. How many treatments are required?
A. It usually requires one to two treatments to produce the desired results. However depending on the number, colour and size of the vessels to be treated, they may require more treatments.
Q. How is the Excel V compared to other kinds of treatment?
A. Excel V can be customised according to the patient requirements. It has various wavelengths and laser spot sizes to ensure that the areas wished to be treated are precisely targeted.
Q. How long does each treatment last?
A. Each treatment should only take 15 to 30 minutes per session.
