After decades of daily sun exposure, inconsistent skincare practices and the natural process of aging, your complexion is bound to end up sporting its share of flaws. But there’s no reason that you have to live with them. While best known for its effectiveness as an anti-wrinkle treatment, laser facial rejuvenation is also a safe, effective way to minimize the appearance of common facial flaws. Unlike topical creams and surface skin treatments, laser treatments work both on and below the skin’s surface to help erase minor flaws that can mar your complexion.
How Lasers Work
Lasers use concentrated beams of light to remove damaged or flawed skin. The precision of lasers allows for targeted treatment of specific areas of concern. As the laser passes over your skin’s surface, it simultaneously removes the outer layer of the skin, while heating the underlying layer of skin. This combination stimulates your skin’s natural healing process, and promotes the growth of new collagen fibers which help your skin appear more plumped and firm after the treatment.
Common facial flaws treated by lasers are acne scars, sun damage spots, birthmarks, rosacea (red spots) and spider veins. At Estetica Institute, we have the newest technology in lasers available, The Excel V Laser from Cutera being one of them.
What is Excel V?
Excel V is the most advanced aesthetic technology that combines two powerfully precise lasers to target and eliminate vascular concerns (redness, unsightly veins) and benign pigmented lesions (age spots, sun spots, discoloration) on the face and body.
What does Excel V treat?
Excel V treats nearly twenty unique aesthetic and dermatologic skin concerns. The most common excel V treatments include rosacea, facial and leg veins, age/brown spots, and acne scars.
How does Excel V work?
Dr. DeLange will customize the treatment settings to target the color and depth of your skin and concern. Most treatments are complete within minutes.
Why is Excel V so great?
For most procedures, Excel V provides quick treatments with best results within just a few days. Most procedures take only take 5 to 10 minutes but some may take up to 45 minutes.
How many treatments are required?
Most treatments require only one to two treatment sessions. The number of treatments will vary based on your condition. Dr. DeLange will discuss a customized treatment plan with you during your complimentary consultation.
What are the side effects and downtime?
Redness and/or swelling can be expected following treatment and will resolve within a few days. Treated brown spots will darken but will disappear within 3 to 6 days. Typically, you can wear make-up and return to normal activities immediately.
