The laser works by delivering high-power pulses of green laser light energy that cause the blood within the vein to coagulate. This eventually destroys the vessels, which are gradually resorbed by your body. Blood flow is then redirected to veins deeper below the skin’s surface. Removing telangiectasia and other vascular lesions may require multiple sessions, spaced four to six weeks apart.
Treated brown spots will darken and slough off within three to six days. If only certain spots were treated versus a broad area, it’s quite normal to have some bumpiness from swelling. Swelling should calm down within one to three days, though your provider may recommend a topical steroid, to reduce swelling.
One major advantage of the Excel V laser is that it can be dialed down to precisely treat small areas, making it possible for the laser to eradicate some veins or brown spots in one or two sessions. While most lasers take multiple sessions to achieve noticeable results, many procedures performed with the Excel V will require the least number of treatments.”
To minimize discomfort and increase safety, the Excel V + provides continuous, adjustable cooling.
