The Excel V Dual Laser System by Cutera is offered at Abramson Facial Plastic Surgery & Rejuvenation Center located in Atlanta. This new non-invasive state-of-the-art laser technology utilizes two different hand piece attachments to address different concerns. The Excel V hand piece is used to correct vascular and pigmentation (browns, reds, blues and purples) conditions on the face or body. The Laser Genesis hand piece improves skin color, clarity and tone, as well as building collagen to smooth wrinkles and fine lines. To ensure patient comfort, the mechanism uses cooling technologies that produce continuous cooling before, during and after the treatment.

About the Procedure
Prior to any Med Spa procedure, our aesthetician Lina consults with patients to determine which one of the Excel V Dual Laser System therapies is appropriate. Unlike some other laser procedures, injections or topical anesthesia are not required throughout the duration of the 15-30 minute procedure. To minimize discomfort and protect a patient’s skin, the technology employs a proprietary cooling mechanism. For vascular pigmentation issues, Lina will use the Excel V hand piece on the affected areas of the skin until the abnormal vessels, lesions or areas of hyperpigmentation diminish. The number of sessions depends on various parameters, including the size, thickness and color of the vascular lesion. Superficial vascular lesions such as small spider veins and diffused redness are easiest to treat; some patients might see significant improvement after just one treatment. When signs of aging, sun damage, acne, large pores, poor skin tone or wrinkles are the concern, a series of 4 to 6 Laser Genesis treatments are recommended to achieve optimal results. As well, a single Laser Genesis session is a great glow pick-me-up for your skin a few days prior to a special event.
Before and After the Procedure
Patients will need to remove make-up or moisturizers and, in some cases, the area to be treated may need to be shaved. Gel, anesthetic or ice is not required for this treatment and there are no long-term side effects or downtime.
