Excel V Laser for Uneven Skin Pigment

Excel V No filtersExcel V Logo

Great for: Brown spots, freckles, red spots and uneven skin pigment
Not for: Treating fine lines or use before sun exposure

No FiltersHere’s an exciting new laser that works on both hyperpigmentation and overall skin redness. The Excel V treats your individual pigment worries (including stubborn brown age spots), setting a new standard for uneven skin tone. It’s just the ticket for widespread blotchiness, freckles and red spots.

Excel V is the advanced technology that combines two powerfully precise lasers to reduce discoloration and promote a more even skin tone. It targets specific areas without abrading the skin’s surface.

Excel V Pigment before and after

If you plan on being out in the sun, you should not have Excel V, (but you can have Laser Genesis and laser hair removal.) It’s ideal to schedule your Excel V treatments in fall and winter to erase the sun-damage from the previous summer.

Treatment time varies according to the size of area you are having treated, but one treatment typically ranges from 5 to 20 minutes. During your Excel V procedure, you may feel a series of brief pinches, similar to a rubber band snapping, but no local anesthesia or pain medication is necessary.

If you have specific brown spots treated, they will darken immediately and begin to flake off naturally within three to six days to reveal clearer skin. For full face treatments, you should expect swelling which peaks 24-48 hours post-treatment and usually resolves within a few days. Typically you can wear makeup and return to normal activities immediately.

The amount of treatments recommended will depend on your condition.  Typically one to four treatments will do.  When you come in for your consultation, we will give you information tailored to your particular needs and skin condition.

The improvement in the areas treated is permanent but over time new spots may appear, as a result of new sun exposure and the ongoing aging process.
