Millions of Americans are affected by vascular skin conditions, such as rosacea, spider veins and telangiectasia, which can cause unsightly broken blood vessels, discoloration and lesions to appear on the skin of the face and legs. People affected by these skin conditions often report embarrassment or self-consciousness, which can deter them from joining social occasions or even going out in public. While much progress has been made in identifying the causes of these conditions, treatment options have been largely limited to procedures that incur adverse side effects on patients, such as electrosurgery, sclerotherapy and surgery.
Excel V is a state-of-the-art system featuring dual laser wavelengths capable of targeting vascular lesions at both a superficial and deeper level. Without damaging healthy skin or connective tissues, Excel V treats vascular skin conditions and puts patients’ safety and comfort first. The system uses a unique high power green laser that is absorbed by abnormal blood vessels in the skin. The laser heats and eliminates the abnormal vessels, ultimately restoring normal skin tone and color. Excel V can be customized to each patient’s skin condition, enabling precise and effective treatment of everything from superficial blemishes to deep scars. The system leverages innovative cooling technologies to ensure patient comfort, and there are no long-term side effects or downtime.
Another vein treatment option is sclerotherapy, which involves injections of Asclera. In general, laser treatments are best suited for facial veins and redness and sclerotherapy is most appropriate for the legs.
