New York board certified dermatologists Dr. Gary Goldenberg and Dr. Kristina Goldenberg recommend Cutera Excel V treatments for patients looking to reduce discoloration and improve the overall tone and texture of their skin.
When compared to other lasers the Cutera Excel V exceedingly versatile. Due to limited wavelengths, many lasers can only treat certain colors of lesions (brown or red, for example). The Cutera Excel V can correct red, purple, blue, and brown discolorations. Additionally, Cutera can be used on nearly all skin types. Cutera Excel V can remedy a variety of skin imperfections, such as:
It can also help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Cutera Excel V laser treatments are fast, convenient, and do not cause significant pain. Before a Cutera Excel V treatment, a gel is placed on the skin to help ensure comfort. Your doctor will then place the device on your skin and send pulsed laser energy directly to the discolored area (spider veins, age spots, rosacea patch). When the laser light hits the skin, the pigmentation is broken down so that it can be eliminated by the body.
A typical treatment takes about 15-30 minutes, depending on the area and the skin condition being treated. The number of treatments needed will depend on the individual patient, but most patients achieve desired outcomes after 1 to 2 treatments. For best results, you doctor may recommend 3-4 treatments.
No downtime is necessary and you can expect to return to your daily activities immediately after an appointment. After treatment, patients may experience some redness, bruising, and blisters. These are temporary side effects and will typically resolve themselves within a few days.
Most patients will see immediate results after a single Cutera Excel V treatment. Over the course of a few months, the lesions and imperfections will continue to fade as the body absorbs the broken down pigmentation and heals. Final results will be seen in about 12 weeks. The results are permanent. To help ensure that the discoloration does not return, the skin should be protected from the sun.
