How are treatments performed?

Like our previous XEO Laser system, the Excel V™ system really offers many treatments depending on how the device is set and which hand-piece is used. These include:

LaserGenesis: LaserGenesis is one of our most popular treatments. It utilizes non-invasive laser technology that safely and effectively treats premature signs of aging on the face and neck, such as fine lines, rosacea (diffuse and excessive redness), large pores and scars. LaserGenesis is a relaxed, comfortable treatment with no downtime.  While being treated you will experience a gentle warming sensation on the treatment area. Read more

Excel V™ for Brown Spots and Sun Damage: Dr. Capek often sees men and women who have developed a lot of sun damage and brown spots on their skin, typically involving their face, neck, chest, arms and hands. This completely ‘tunable’ laser is extremely effective at lightening pigmentation and often eliminating stubborn brown spots on all areas of the body. It is even more effective than IPL (Limelight) treatments and for the face, neck and décolleté we often combine the laser treatments with Hydrafacials for a dramatic improvement in your skin quality. The large sapphire cooling hand-piece makes the treatments more comfortable than ever.

Excel V™ for all things vascular (telangectasias, broken capillaries, leg veins, angiomas): Many people notice unsightly blood vessels on their face or legs, as well as other areas of the body. The Excel V™ proprietary technology clears most problem vessels quickly and effectively. This includes visible veins under the eyes, nose or forehead, spider veins on the legs and even larger reticular leg veins. This system also has a large sapphire cooling tip that makes treatments more comfortable and safer than ever. Dramatic results in as little as one treatment!

Excel V™ for Hair Removal: Cutera’s proprietary long-pulse Nd:Yag handpiece has been one of the most innovative laser options for hair removal for over a decade. It allows Dr. Capek and her staff to treat patients with any skin color safely. Optimal areas for hair removal include the face, chin, underarm and bikini area. The large sapphire cooling tip makes treatments more comfortable and safer than ever. Read More
