Telangiectasia (Broken Capillaries) | Brown Sunspots | Rosacea Laser Treatment
What is vascular laser used for?
The Excel V laser treats over 15 unique aesthetic and dermatologic skin concerns. The most common use of the Excel V laser at Melbourne Skin & Dermatology includes treatment of rosacea, general facial redness, red acne marks, general rejuvenation, leg veins and benign brown sun spots.
How is the procedure performed?
During the procedure, you are welcomed into our laser treatment room where you lie down on our comfortable treatment couch. Your eyes are covered with special laser goggles. A gel is applied to the skin and the laser is pulsed on your skin. Most treatments take 30-45 minutes. Treatments can feel similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin. The laser handpiece has a cooling plate which is in contact with the skin at all times during treatment for comfort.
After your treatment, a cool compress is applied to the skin. Redness and/or swelling can be expected following treatment and may resolve within a few days.
For most procedures, Excel V provides quick treatments with best results seen within a month.
