HOW DOES EXCEL V™ WORK?
Excel V™ treats vascular conditions by administering a unique high power green laser that is absorbed by the abnormal blood vessels in the skin. The laser heats the abnormal vessels causing the vein walls to collapse and seal shut. Over time, the vessels will no longer be visible.
HOW IS THE PROCEDURE PERFORMED?
The procedure is performed in the comfort of our office. Unlike other procedures, injections or topical anesthesia are not required.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED?
The number of treatments depends on various parameters, including the size, thickness and color of the vascular lesion. Superficial vascular lesions are usually easiest to treat; some patients might see significant improvement after just one treatment. However, individual results vary, and final results may not be apparent for several weeks or months.
IS THE TREATMENT PAINFUL?
Most patients experience a mild stinging sensation as the pulses of light energy are delivered through the hand piece. The skin is cooled as the treatment is performed—making it very tolerable. Following the treatment, the pain is minimal to nonexistent.
WILL MY INSURANCE COVER THE EXCEL V™ TREATMENTS?
The vascular and benign pigmented conditions the Excel V™ treats are considered cosmetic and therefore are not covered by insurance.
