What is Cutera Excel V?

Excel V

Cutera is a cutting-edge technology laser that promotes vibrant and healthy-looking skin in both men and women. This small handheld device is waved over the affected area. By emitting waves of energy, this laser beam reduces the appearance of vessels, veins, cherry hemangiomas, broken capillaries, bruises, and problems with pigmentation. The additional handpiece for Lasergenesis can also treat wrinkles and skin irregularities such as acne and pores by strategic heat delivery with designed pulsation. The pulsation happens in the appropriate layer and it stimulates collagen, dismantles bacteria, and discharges related to acne.

You may obtain young, glowing skin by addressing diseases usually connected with early symptoms of aging and sun damage such as blood vessels, rosacea, facial veins, red stretch marks, red acne scars, angiomas (vascular moles), and warts.

Cutera Excel V Benefits

The Cutera laser uses technology that promotes skin flexibility and renewal by targeting the targeted vasculature such as veins, broken capillaries, and red marks, and stimulating the synthesis of new collagen through its Lasergenesis handpiece, AKA laser facial.  A successful procedure with the Cutera laser, in combination with a healthy lifestyle, can produce desirable results that will last for years to come.

What Results to Expect:

  • Treating Veins Around the Eyes and Legs: Citera laser was FDA-approved for the treatment Fo peri-orbital veins (around the eyes) as well as broken capillaries, red spots, and veins on the body such as legs. 
  • Skin Rejuvenation: Cutera laser treatments can help to rejuvenate the skin and improve skin tone associated with aging and sun damage, especially with the use of the Laser genesis handpiece, AKA Laser Facial. ;
  • Treating Rosacea: Cutera has been proven to reduce redness and excess vascularities associated with rosacea by gently heating the upper dermis well below your skin’s surface.
  • Treating Port Wine Stains: The laser targets the hemoglobin within blood vessels, heating them without damaging the surrounding skin, reducing the appearance of port wine stains permanently.
  • Minimal Downtime: The slight redness only stays for a few minutes or hours.

How Long Will Results Last?

Generally, a total of three treatments is necessary to reach effective results. While most results from Cutera Excel V are permanent, repeat treatments may be necessary as soon as between 6 and 12 months as the skin produces more vessels and pigmentations. This can vary from patient to patient depending on their lifestyle and their body’s propensity to grow additional lesions.
