excel® V+ Laser Treatment in Vancouver

        Unveil flawless skin with an excel® V+ laser treatment in Vancouver. It is the ultimate solution for diverse skin concerns, powered by cutting-edge technology with design input from top dermatologists.

        What Is excel® V+?

        excel® V+ is a versatile laser treatment platform that harnesses two clinically proven wavelengths to address various skin concerns, from vascular conditions like rosacea and broken capillaries/dilated blood vessels (spider veins) to pigmentary issues such as age spots, sun spots, and acne scars.

        Engineered with insights from leading dermatologists, it combines power, precision, and performance to offer safe and effective solutions for both complex and common skin conditions. The system's three handpieces, including the Genesis V™ and CoolView™, provide customizable and comfortable treatment options, ensuring targeted and optimal results for various skin types and concerns.

        How Does excel® V+ Laser Treatment Work?

        The excel® V+ laser treatment targets skin concerns without harming the surrounding tissue. The laser emits energy at specific wavelengths absorbed by pigmented lesions or blood vessels in vascular conditions. 

        The process converts the absorbed laser energy into heat, causing the targeted cells or structures to break down or collapse. The body's natural healing processes then take over, healing the treated tissue while stimulating collagen production and skin regeneration. 

        excel® V+ laser treatment can be customized for different skin types and conditions, using various handpieces and adjustable settings to treat multiple conditions in one session.

        Which Areas Can Be Treated With an excel® V+ Laser?

        The excel® V+ treatment is suitable for different skin types, conditions, and treatment areas. According to CUTERA®, this includes:

        How to Prepare for an excel® V+ Treatment

        To prepare for an excel® V+ treatment, avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for at least two weeks prior, and adjust your skincare routine by pausing products like retinoids and exfoliating acids. During your initial consultation, please inform us of all medications and supplements, especially those that might affect your skin's sensitivity or healing process. 

        Arrive at your appointment with clean, makeup-free skin, wearing comfortable clothing for easy access to the treatment area. Staying well-hydrated, refraining from smoking, and managing expectations about the treatment's outcomes are also key steps to ensure you're fully prepared and can achieve the best results with your excel® V+ session.

        excel® V+ Aftercare

        After undergoing an excel® V+ treatment, proper aftercare is crucial to maximize the benefits and minimize any potential side effects. Here's what you should do post-treatment:

        • Sun Protection: Protect the treated area from sun exposure by applying a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher sunscreen. Wear protective clothing and seek shade when possible, as treated skin is more susceptible to sunburn.
        • Gentle Skincare: Use gentle, non-irritating skincare products. Avoid exfoliating agents, retinoids, and any products containing alcohol until your skin has fully healed. Try not to pick at your skin! 
        • Moisturize: Keep the skin hydrated by applying a fragrance-free, gentle moisturizer to aid the healing process.
        • Avoid Heat: Skip hot baths, saunas, and excessive exercise for a few days post-treatment to prevent irritation and swelling.
        • Makeup: We suggest you wait at least 24 hours before applying heavy makeup to the area. This allows the skin to breathe and heal.
        • Follow-up: Attend any scheduled follow-up appointments with your practitioner to monitor your healing process and discuss further treatments if needed.

        excel® V+ Recovery Timeline

        Recovery from excel® V+ treatments can vary based on the individual and the specific concerns treated. Here's a general timeline of what you can expect:

        • Immediate to 24 Hours: Mild redness and swelling are common immediately after the treatment and typically subside within a few hours to a day.
        • 1-3 Days Post-Treatment:  Effects might linger slightly longer for more intensive treatments. The skin may feel sensitive, akin to a sunburn.
        • Within the First Week: Noticeable side effects should significantly diminish. You may see improvements in the treated areas as the skin begins to heal.
        • 1-2 Weeks: Full healing from the treatment is often achieved, with most patients able to resume their regular skincare and makeup routines. The treated areas will continue to fade, and the overall skin texture will improve.
        • Follow-up Treatments: Additional sessions may be booked for optimal results depending on the condition treated and your skin's response.
