The Cutera Excel V+ is one of the most advanced laser system that addresses both vascular and pigmentation skin concerns. This laser incorporates two wavelengths ie. 532nm and 1064nm and is effective for all skin types (even darker skin types). This treatment is perfect for you if you frequently find yourself hiding behind concealer and want to improve your skin tone or you simply want to look fresher with more radiance or glow to your skin!

In general, lasers treat the skin by penetrating it with a specific wavelength of light that targets certain molecules in the skin. The Cutera Excel V+ has the wavelength of 532nm and 1064nm which target both vascular and pigment molecules in the skin. The Cutera Excel V+ laser uses the unique Lithium Triborate crystal which makes it incredibly powerful, effective and reliable at treating vascular and pigmentation concerns of the skin. Your practitioner will choose one of the two modes in the Cutera Excel V+ laser and adjust the treatment parameters to suit your unique skin concerns.

If you prefer no downtime for your treatment or if you have darker skin types or if you have melasma, the Laser Genesis mode is most suitable for you. If you prefer a stronger treatment, you can request for the Coolview mode.

Results are typically seen after three to six treatment sessions, however this does depend on your skin conditions and your desired outcome.
