What to Know Before Excel Laser Treatment

At least two visits are required for Excel laser treatment. 

During the first visit, a thorough physical examination is performed. We will examine your skin and review your pertinent medical history. 

Bringing a list of the medications and topical products you are currently using is essential. This initial appointment helps us understand your concerns anddesired goals. With this knowledge, we can determine if you are a good candidate for treatment with Excel V™.

Laser treatments are considered cosmetic services and are not covered by insurance.We provide upfront pricing at your consultation, so you are never hit with a surprise bill at checkout.

How is Cutera Excel V™ performed? 

CuteraExcel V™ treatment is performed in a clinical setting by a trained provider. 

Depending on the treated area, the patient may be asked to cleanse their skin thoroughly and remove any makeup or skincare products. Some treatments may require the application of a topical numbing cream to minimize discomfort. 

The providerand patient will wear protective eyewear to shield their eyes from the laserlight.

During treatment, a laser emits specific wavelengths to target vascular or pigmented lesions or promote skin rejuvenation, adjusting settings for each patient. 

The laser works in different ways depending on the treatment goals:

  • The hemoglobin in the blood vessels absorbs the laser energy for vascular lesions, causing them to coagulate and eventually fade.
  • For pigmented lesions, the laser energy breaks down excess melanin in the skin, leading to a more even skin tone.
  •  For skin rejuvenation, the laser can stimulate collagen production, improving skin texture and reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

In all instances, the Excel V™ provides continuous contact cooling to keep the skin comfortable during the treatment. When the laser energy is delivered, most people describe the feeling as a warm pinprick or rubber band snap that lasts briefly.

The Excel V™’s built-in cooling system provides some of the most comfortable treatments on the market without compromising results.

The duration of Cutera Excel V™ laser sessions can vary depending on several factors, including the specific treatment being performed, the size of the area being treated, and the patient's needs. Generally, sessions can range from a few minutes to 30 minutes or more. Before beginning treatment, your provider will discuss treatment goals and anticipated treatment time.

Most patients will need more than one Excel V™ treatment to address their concerns entirely.

We do our very best to provide an estimated number of treatment sessions for all our services, but it is important to remember that every person responds differently to treatment. The area, severity of your concern, and your tolerance for downtime all play into the number of treatments needed.

What Can I Expect After Excel V™ Treatment?

Immediately after each treatment, you can expect some temporary redness and swelling.

The area and type of condition being treated will depend on the amount of downtime you can expect. Downtime is highly variable between patients. We ask that you stay cool after treatment and avoid exercising for a few days to get the best results possible.

Days to weeks following your treatment sessions, you can expect to experience:

  • A resolution of vascular lesions
  • Improved skin texture
  • Lightening of pigmented skin
  • A reduction in the appearance of fine lines, scarring, and wrinkles
