Excel V is the latest new laser technology available at Liberty Belle Skin Centre for treating redness and veins. With the advantage of a shorter wavelength, our clients are able to diminish abnormal blood vessels on the face and body with little to no downtime or discomfort.
The key benefit is that the redness or haemoglobin of blood vessel imperfections in a patient’s problem area is selectively targeted by treatment to reduce downtime to a minimum and ensure maximal safety.
Due to the unique method of penetration and collagen remodelling properties, the Excel V can deliver many dramatic improvements such as:
- Removing red scars
- Reducing visible stretchmarks
- Effectively treating veins and dark circles around the eye area
- Improving the texture and tone of thin and fragile neck skin on the face and neck
- Removing previously untreatable poikiloderma – which is a red “turkey neck” skin appearance caused by sun damage.
Patients who have seen the most significant results are those with fairer skin types (Fitzpatrick 1-3) with no tan or recent sun exposure. Patients should not apply fake tan 4 weeks prior to treatment as this can affect the outcome.
Always allow for some potential swelling or puffiness for 24-48hrs after any treatment. This is a normal part of the healing process.
- Spider veins
- Veins around the eyes
- Dark circles under eyes
- Leg veins
- Port wine stains
- Cherry angiomas
- Diffuse redness
- Rejuvenation of thin sun damaged skin
- Red scars and stretchmarks
Our laser treatment can be started shortly after a bruise is detected, which can sometimes be immediately after it occurs, however sometimes a delay of 12 to 24 hours after appearance is needed for effectiveness of the treatment.
In most patients we see fading start within hours after laser treatment. Even partial fading can be of major benefit as it often means that any remaining skin discolouration can now be concealed with the addition of our customised make-up. A superficial lighter bruise can usually be cleared within 24 hours. Deeper bruising that is more dark or purple can usually be removed fully within a few days which are around 3 times quicker than with traditional methods used.
A light bruise will usually only need one treatment whereas a dark bruise can be treated every 1-2 days until it resolves – which is usually within 3-5 days.
Prior to your treatment with our Cutera Excel V, you would have a personalised skin consultation with one of our experienced nurses or dermal clinicians to discuss your unique concerns and detail any treatment options available to you at Liberty Belle.
This consultation will enable us to closely examine your skin and assess your medical history, clearly explain your recommended treatment options and discuss any risks or other considerations relevant.
Unlike other procedures, injections or topical anaesthesia is not required.
To minimise discomfort and protect the skin, our advanced skin surface cooling system is used throughout your treatment.
The shorter wavelength of the Excel V (532mn) means red skin imperfections are selectively targeted so that less energy is used to clear problem capillaries and veins. Less energy needed means greater comfort levels, less swelling and less downtime.
Most commonly people achieve immediate improvement or resolution of their problem after one or two treatments.
This procedure can potentially treat any unsightly vein on the body.
Chronic rosacea clients and those with diffuse redness may require 3 or 4 treatments to treat their condition.
Veins can sometimes reoccur so your clinician will educate you on how best to enhance and maintain your results.
Scars and stretch marks usually take 3 treatments and some time to completely settle.
