How Does Excel V+ Laser Work?

Our Excel V+ laser treatment is a solid-state laser technology incorporating two precision laser wavelengths in one device. This one-of-a-kind treatment is non-ablative, meaning there will only be mild skin disruption, and offers little to no downtime.

Four compatible handpieces provide more versatility from the Excel V+. For example, it can deliver a micro-pulsed 532 nm wavelength with our Genesis V™ handpiece, customizing spot size and wavelength. Laser Genesis is a non-invasive laser technology that offers multiple purposes like restoring skin tone, treating wrinkles and fine lines, acne and superficial scarring, large pores, and active acne.

This heat-based laser stimulates the body’s natural healing processes to boost collagen growth, resulting in a more youthful skin tone and texture. The fully integrated CoolView™ or the thin Dermastat handpiece accurately treats small pigmented and vascular lesions.

By increasing the Excel V power by 50%, its laser delivers unmatched precision and effectiveness for treating pigmentation, vascular problems, and non-pigmented lesions. In addition, continuous Contact Cooling throughout the treatments provides maximum comfort.

Laser Hair Removal

The excel V+™ laser can also deliver a 1064 nm wavelength to target hair in unwanted places by impacting melanin within the hair shaft to destroy hair follicles. This results in permanent hair reduction and effectively treats patients of all skin tones safely thanks to the multiple wavelengths possible with this innovative system.

The Excel V+ Process

This non-invasive treatment requires no anesthesia and is an in-office procedure. Before we begin Excel V+ therapy, we’ll test a small skin area to determine its response to the laser. Depending on which handheld device we use, you may feel a slight snap or a warm sensation as your provider moves the tool across your skin.

Your Excel V+ skin rejuvenating treatments are up to five times faster than those of other lasers, like the VBeam laser. We can treat a single area in three to five minutes. The procedure is quick and convenient, so you can schedule it during your lunch break.

Depending on your cosmetic concerns, you may need a series of treatment sessions to deliver your desired results. After your consultation, we can book your follow-up treatments to ensure proper spacing and optimal results. While you may notice skin clarity and enhanced tone following your first treatment, the benefits continue to improve for the next two to four months as your skin regenerates new collagen and elastin production.

Excel V+ Treatment Aftercare

There is little to no recovery, but some slight, temporary effects may occur after the treatments. Here are some other post-Excel V+ Laser aftercare instructions you should understand:

  • Expect some redness, swelling, and bruising.
  • You may experience a bug-bitten appearance which should resolve in a day or two.
  • Avoid heat, steam baths, and hot tubs for a couple of days.
  • Do not use skin care products that contain glycolic/salicylic acids, benzoyl peroxide, retinol, or tretinoin.
  • Compression stockings are optional.

We will review all benefits and risks during your consultation to fully understand what to expect from the procedure.

New Orleans Excel V+ FAQs

Directing the Excel V+ laser energy at wrinkles and fine lines stimulates neocollagenesis, the healing process when your skin begins rebuilding collagen and elastin proteins. The laser energy may also break up the disturbed collagen in acne scarring and stimulate neocollagenesis to rebuild smoother, tighter, and even-textured skin.

Although many patients report few or no effects, it’s not uncommon to notice a slight reddening or mild inflammation. Bruising is possible, and blistering may occur, but rarely. Any side effects resolve within one week.

Yes! Our Excel V+ laser system can treat skin types ranging from light to dark as identified in the Fitzpatrick skin type classification, due to its customizable wavelength settings.

The cost will depend on the skin condition, the level of treatment provided, and the number of treatment sessions. A comprehensive cost analysis will be provided during your consultation.
