How Does the excel V+ Laser Work?
The excel V+ laser uses varying wavelengths to target specific characteristics of the skin. For example, with hyperpigmentation or venous conditions, the underlying cause is the concentration of chromophores, known as melanin and oxyhemoglobin. The laser energy from the excel V+ device precisely targets and heats these groups of pigments, causing them to break up. Afterwards, the body will process and remove these pigments, reducing the visibility of your symptoms. For wrinkles and other aging concerns, the laser can induce targeted collagen stimulation to initiate remodeling of the skin, gradually producing a more youthful appearance.
What is the excel V+ Laser Treatment Like?
The excel V+ laser treatment is performed comfortably in our office. Thanks to the CoolView™ contact cooling technology, there is no need for anesthetics or topical numbing solutions. Before treatment begins, we’ll adjust the laser wavelength according to your treatment needs. Then, we’ll use the appropriate handpiece based on the size and depth of your skin concerns. To perform treatment, we’ll place the handpiece over the treatment area as quick pulses of laser energy are delivered to the skin. Most treatments take only a few minutes to complete.
How Many excel V+ Laser Treatments are Needed?
Most patients will notice clearer skin after their first excel V+ treatment. However, you may need a series of treatment sessions depending on your treatment needs. We’ll discuss your desired outcome during your consultation, and will be able to recommend a treatment plan that produces the optimal results.
When Will I Notice Results from excel V+?
In the days and weeks following your excel V+ treatment, treated skin lesions may dry up and flake off. During and after this process, the skin will continue to heal and rebuild itself to produce a clearer, smoother complexion. These results will continue to improve with additional treatment sessions, and should continue to improve for 2-4 months after your final treatment.
How Much Do excel V+ Treatments Cost?
Excel V+ treatments are individualized to create a unique plan based around your treatment goals. Because of this, the cost of treatment with excel V+ will vary.

You’ll be able to resume normal activities immediately after your treatment.
