LOUISVILLE, KY, June 23, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Excel V system uses a unique high-power green laser to precisely treat visible vessels, broken capillaries, spider veins, vascular lesions and skin discoloration, The laser light is absorbed by abnormal blood vessels in the skin, which heats and eliminates the vessels, ultimately restoring normal skin tone and color. The technology in the Excel V has been proven effective in treating a wide range of skin conditions, including rosacea, facial veins, port wine stains, cherry angionoma and telangiectasia (1). Excel V also incorporates the latest innovation in cooling technologies enabling the doctor to deliver higher doses directly to the affected lesions with less pain than traditional laser treatments.
People seeking healthier looking skin are often faced with the untenable options of invasive medical procedures associated with undesirable side effects or costly cosmetic creams and makeup that only temporarily mask the underlying condition. While non-laser treatment options exist for these skin conditions, such options are associated with significant limitations. Treatment of port wine stains, for example, has included radiation, freezing, and surgery, often resulting in pain and scarring. Similarly, spider leg veins are most commonly treated by sclerotherapy, an invasive procedure that requires patients to wear compression stockings after treatment and includes an injection.
Dr. Bradley Calobrace says the Excel V laser system provides a safe and effective alternative to non-laser treatment options for these types of skin conditions. "Excel V provides a reliable, noninvasive treatment that is easier to use and well tolerated by patients."
Dr. Nana Mizuguchi said, "The laser's unique cooling mechanism allows patients to get e better treatment of the affected area without damaging the surrounding tissue, and patients like that there is no downtime."
Treatment with the Excel V laser system can be customized to each individual patient and their specific skin condition. Treatments can be adjusted to treat different sizes and depths, from superficial blemishes to deep vascular scars.
