Cutera’s Excel V is an innovative laser system designed to target and eliminate vascular skin conditions, including undesirable veins. The system works by emitting precise, high-intensity light pulses to the targeted veins, causing the blood within to coagulate and eventually collapse. This process is known as laser vein removal. Over time, the treated veins are naturally reabsorbed by the body, leading to a significant reduction or complete disappearance of the visible veins. This procedure is non-invasive, typically pain-free, and requires minimal recovery time, making it a preferred choice for many individuals seeking a solution for unsightly veins.
Excel V laser vein removal could be a suitable option if you’re looking for a non-invasive treatment to eliminate unsightly veins or broken capillaries. This advanced laser procedure is known for effectively addressing varied vascular conditions such as spider veins, varicose veins, and rosacea. However, this procedure is only applicable to skin types 1 and 2.
Our experienced physicians will be able to evaluate your condition and make a proper diagnosis before recommending the perfect procedure for you.
The Cutera Excel V Laser Vein Removal procedure is a non-invasive treatment that uses laser energy to target and eliminate veins and broken capillaries. As you prepare for the procedure, here’s what you can expect:
Your provider will begin by cleaning the area to be treated. Protective eyewear will be provided to shield your eyes from the laser’s intense light. The Excel V laser system will then be calibrated to your specific needs and the treatment area will be exposed to bursts of laser light. These bursts cause the abnormal veins to coagulate and eventually fade away.
The procedure typically takes around 15 to 30 minutes but can last longer depending on the size of the treatment area. You may experience a mild stinging sensation, akin to a rubber band snap when the laser pulse is delivered.
Post-procedure, the treated area may appear red or slightly swollen, but these side effects typically subside within a few hours. Sun exposure should be limited for a period after treatment, and a sunblock of SPF 30 or higher should be applied when going outdoors. Results can be seen immediately in some cases, though multiple treatments may be necessary for optimal outcomes.
Remember, every individual’s experience with the Excel V Laser Vein Removal procedure may vary slightly based on their unique condition and the specific protocol followed.
Before your treatment:

History of herpes or cold sores may require an anti-viral prescription prior to treatment

Leg vein treatments only:
o Compression stockings (20-30 mm/hg) are optional

Laser Vein Therapy is used to target spider veins in the face and legs. The gold standard treatment for spider veins is laser therapy. Spider veins, also known medically as telangiectasia or venulectasias, are tiny red, blue or purple thread-like veins near the surface of the skin that often take on the appearance of a spider's web. These perpetually dilated and visible veins, caused by increased pressure to the veins, can develop on any part of the body, including the face, but most often appear on the thighs, calves, ankles or buttocks.
The Cutera CoolGlide laser delivers pulses of light energy which causes the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel which is later reabsorbed by your body. Blood flow will then be redirected to veins deeper below your skin’s surface, where it should be.

This place is an other world experience. I promise you won't regret it! I never understood the difference between MedSpas but after speaking with Dr. Patel and having her inject me... WOW! Wish I was more educated before about HOW important it is for the person injecting you to TRULY understand anatomy. Dr. Patel is SO knowledgeable and I truly appreciate that she continues to educate herself by attending seminars and getting certified for all kinds of things that will likely become "mainstream" in like 5 years. I'm okay with her being out of office when I need her for that reason, haha. She never pushes fillers or botox. On the other hand, she encourages you to take CARE of your skin and try anti-aging laser remedies (they offer so many types!). I'm literally never going anywhere else!
" She's the best hands down "
Dr Desai is wonderful.. very knowledgeable
