Excel V

What is the Excel V Laser?

Excel V Laser is the most advanced aesthetic technology that combines two powerfully precise lasers in one device to target and eliminate vascular concerns (redness, unsightly veins) and benign pigmented lesions (age spots, sun spots, discoloration) on the face and body.

With the Excel V (KTP 532nm) or Laser Genesis (1064nm), a series of treatments with one of our experienced providers can successfully give you clearer, younger looking skin.

What does the Excel V Laser treat?

The most common Excel V treatments include rosacea and facial redness, leg and facial veins (telangectasias), and sun damage brown spots. We also use the Excel V (Nd:YAG, 1064nm) for laser hair removal on our patients with deeper skin tones.

What does Laser Genesis treat?

Laser Genesis helps stimulate collagen production to restore your skin’s youthful glow and appearance. It improves common concerns like fine lines and wrinkles, skin texture, and overall facial redness. It can also decrease the redness in scars, and helps improve the appearance of acne and acne scars.

Our Board-Certified Dermatologists are all Fellowship Trained in Cosmetic and Laser Surgery and members of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery. This means you’ll be in the most experienced hands for your Excel V treatment!
Excel V treats nearly twenty unique aesthetic and dermatologic skin concerns. The most common Excel V treatments include rosacea, facial and leg veins, age/brown spots, and acne scars
Temporary mild pink discoloration or swelling of the treated area can occur after treatment. We suggest treating the area with Alastin Regenerating Skin Nectar before and after treatment to speed up recovery time and improve results!

More than one treatment may be needed to clear blood vessels, especially around the sides of the nose.  Most patients need a series of treatments, separated by about 1 month. To reduce fine leg veins which aren’t amenable to sclerotherapy, a series of 2-4 monthly treatments may be necessary. Your experienced CCSD Provider will determine a treatment plan that’s right for you at your laser consultation.

Laser Genesis is a breakthrough laser treatment that stimulates the skin’s natural processes to reverse the signs of aging and sun damage and promote a vibrant, healthy looking complexion.

Micro-pulses of laser energy activate collagen remodeling to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and target unwanted brown spots and facial redness. Although the individual treatment results are subtle, the overall effect of a treatment series can be quite dramatic.
Laser Genesis helps restore your skin’s youthful glow and appearance by improving common concerns like facial redness, brown spots, and fine lines and wrinkles. With quick treatments and no downtime, Laser Genesis can fit into your busy schedule and is considered the perfect lunchtime procedure by many patients.
