At the Advanced Laser and Cosmetic Center, we use the latest, safest and most effective laser available for getting rid of spider veins and other vascular skin conditions, including: rosacea, cherry angiomas, and port wine stain birthmarks. That is the state-of-the-art Excel V Laser System, which delivers truly astonishing results in treating all of these flaws, without damaging surrounding tissue and without any downtime. This advanced system uses a unique high power green laser. When directed at a flaw, the laser’s energy penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the abnormal blood vessels. The blood vessels are heated and essentially zapped away. Discoloration disappears and your skin returns to its normal tone and color.
Just about anyone who is tired of trying to cover facial spider veins with foundation or their hiding spider veins on their legs under pants is a viable candidate. The Excel V has multiple wavelengths that can be adjusted to any patient’s skin color and condition. Excel V also has an adjustable spot size which allows for precise and effective treatment from both superficial and deeper problems.
This is a simple office procedure that should last between 15 – 30-minutes. To ensure patient comfort, the Excel V has a built-in cooling system which produces continuous cooling before, during and after each laser pulse.
The specific number varies, depending on the size, thickness, and color of the issue being treated. Superficial vascular lesions, such as small spider veins and diffused redness, are the easiest to eliminate. In these cases, many patients enjoy significant improvement after just one treatment. Other vascular skin issues may require follow-up appointments for optimal results.
