About the Procedure
Prior to any procedure, Dr. Abramson consults with patients to determine if Excel V Laser therapy is appropriate. Unlike other procedures, injections or topical anesthesia are not required throughout the duration of the 15-30 minute procedure. Depending on the condition, Dr. Abramson may place the Excel V hand piece over the affected areas of the skin until the abnormal vessels or pigment diminish. To minimize discomfort and protect a patient’s skin, the Excel V uses a proprietary cooling mechanism.
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. On average, 4 to 6 treatments are required to achieve optimal results. Dr. Abramson will determine a treatment course during the initial consultation.
