Cutera® Excel V™ & Laser Genesis
Dr. Kent V. Hasen is pleased to offer Excel V laser skin treatments to give Naples-Fort Myers patients a single treatment option that can address redness, brown spots, fine lines, and more. We also use this versatile laser to perform the popular Laser Genesis facials–a “lunchtime” treatment that enhances the skin’s radiance with no downtime.
Before & After Excel V Laser Skin Treatments
Treatment of Rosacea Before and After 4 Treatments. Your results may vary.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
Excel V treatments are safe for all skin types on most exposed areas such as the face, neck, chest, arms, and legs. Women and men choose these treatments to treat a range of concerns including:
- Brown spots, sun spots, freckles and excess pigmentation
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Broken capillaries on the face and spider veins on the legs (telangiectasias)
- Acne scars
- Redness from rosacea and acne
- Enlarged pores
For enhanced results, some patients choose to combine Excel V treatments with the nourishing HydraFacial®. During your skin consultation, our accredited medical aesthetician works with you to develop a treatment plan personalized to your aesthetic goals and skin.
How It Works
The Excel V laser energy penetrates the surface of the skin harmlessly to create changes within. It heats up and breaks down concentrated pigment in brown spots. For vascular concerns that create redness, the pigment in the blood is safely heated until the capillary or vein collapses and seals shut. The body naturally filters away the treated pigment, leaving the skin clearer. In addition, the laser energy heats the upper dermis, well below the skin’s surface, to stimulate collagen production for increased firmness and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.
Excel V Treatments
Excel V treatments are performed in our office and take only about 15 to 30 minutes to complete. No anesthetic is needed. The handpiece is moved over the skin as laser energy is emitted in quick pulses. The laser also uses a unique cooling system for maintained comfort. Following a treatment, some redness and swelling may persist for several hours, but most patients feel comfortable returning to their regular activities immediately.
Cutera Laser Genesis Facial
The Laser Genesis facial is a popular treatment option performed with the Excel V laser. It’s a great choice for people who want brighter, smoother skin without downtime. These gentle, relaxing treatments are so comfortable, anesthetic isn’t needed. The skin may be slightly red after treatment for about an hour. Each treatment creates a more even, healthy complexion, reduces pore size, and diminishes fine lines. Over the course of 3 treatments, Laser Genesis can help restore the skin’s youthful appearance and even texture.
Enjoying Your Results
After an Excel V treatment, patients usually notice immediate improvement, although experiences vary with treated concerns and individual factors. Many benefit from having 2 to 3 treatments for progressive improvement after each one.
