Spider Veins and Vascular Conditions Treatment
Living Well Institute for Skin and Laser is proud to be among the first providers of Excel V™ laser treatment for leg veins and other vascular skin conditions in the Portland-Beaverton area.
Benefits of Excel V Laser Treatment
- Treats superficial vascular conditions
- Unsurpassed treatment for leg veins, port wine stains, and venous lakes
- Continuous contact cooling for comfort
The Cutera® Excel V™ is used to treat a variety of vascular conditions. Using a unique, high power green laser, it precisely treats visible vessels, broken capillaries, spider veins and skin discoloration. The Excel V also has a longer wavelength (1064nm) laser for targeting purple leg veins, periorbital blue veins and deeper vascular structures. Using the two wavelengths, the Excel V heats and eliminates targeted blood vessels and pigmented spots, ultimately restoring normal skin tone.
How does Excel V Work?
The laser light is absorbed by abnormal blood vessels in the skin, which heats the abnormal vessels causing the vein walls to collapse and seal shut. Overtime, the vessels will no longer be visible and skin will return to it’s normal tone and color. The Excel V uses a unique cooling technology that enables higher doses of the treatment directly to the affected area, with less pain than traditional laser systems.
