Biba Cosmetic Solutions is now offering the latest, gold-standard Excel V vascular and pigmentation laser for safe, efficient, and effective results. Excel V employs breakthrough technology to offer solutions for up to 30 dermal conditions, including rosacea, body/facial veins, pigmentations, skin tags, skin tightening, and more!
The Excel V laser was designed, tested, and manufactured by Cutera, the world’s leading company in laser devices and technology. The Excel V laser was designed after working collaboratively with world-renowned professors, physicians, cosmetic doctors, and surgeons. Cutera created a device that treats more than 30 aesthetic and dermatologic skin concerns including rosacea, facial and leg veins, and age/brown spots. This also includes acne scars with little to no limit on the patient’s Fitzpatrick. Our Excel V utilises a high-performance dual-wave length laser of 532nm and 1064nm providing a faster, more efficient clearing of targeted lesions safely.
The highly absorbed 532 nm wavelength has proven effective for a variety of superficial vascular lesions. It is especially effective for conditions including rosacea, diffuse redness, and telangiectasias.
The 1064 nm Nd: YAG wavelength expands treatment capabilities to include deeper darker vascular lesions including leg and periorbital veins as well as venous lakes and venous malformations. The Nd: YAG is also used to perform CUTERA’s signature Laser Genesis procedure.
Upon arrival, you will be asked to fill out a skin consultation form which will include questions about your skin type, medical conditions, previous treatments, etc, for our therapist to gain a better understanding of you and your skin goals. You will then have a private discussion with one of our senior dermal clinicians who will assess your individual requirements, suggest a tailored plan, and take you through the details of the treatment including the pre-care and aftercare process. This will also give you the opportunity to have any questions or queries regarding your treatment answered.
Patients will feel minimal discomfort during any procedure as Cutera’s Excel V has a sapphire cooling tip that allows for cooling of the exact area that is being treated. It also allows for pre, parallel, and post-pulse cooling, for a safer and more comfortable treatment. This also has reduced risk to the skin, with the treatment being as comfortable as possible compared to other laser devices on the market. Most people describe it as the feel of a rubber band being flicked onto the skin.
You will be given goggles to wear to protect your eyes during the treatment. Excel V Laser treatment uses a green power laser to absorb the blood vessels or imperfections that are being treated. The laser heats them up until the imperfection is removed or has reached a clinical endpoint. This procedure is delivered through a handpiece that is applied directly onto the skin. Using the Excel V Laser usually takes around 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the treatment area.
It’s normal to experience some swelling and perhaps some mild bruising after having an Excel V Laser treatment, but there isn’t a need to worry as this should resolve itself within 24 to 48 hours of the procedure. Most patients will return to their normal skin tone and texture soon after Excel V Laser treatment. The results of Excel V Laser treatment can normally be seen within a few days of treatment but it may require several treatment sessions depending on the area and reasons you are having an Excel V Laser treatment.
There is little to no downtime associated with Excel V Laser treatment, which makes it an ideal choice for those wanting to correct imperfections on their face and body. Patients will be able to leave the clinic soon after being treated and can return to their daily routine straight away. Most patients do not take time off work for Excel V Laser treatment, with some returning to work on the same day.
If you have imperfections, such as broken blood vessels/ veins, acne scarring, redness, flushing, or rosacea, then you may be suitable for Excel V Laser treatment. This procedure can be used to treat various imperfections of the face and body for men and women! In addition, the Excel V Laser treatment is suitable for all skin types, from very light to dark. We tailor each procedure to suit your skin needs, and you can find out more about what this treatment can do for you at your consultation.
Excel V is the new gold standard for treating rosacea and patients who experience flushing or redness within the skin. Using Excel V, we utilise a dual-wavelength to target specific layers of the skin, maximising results for our clients and helping restore the skin’s natural colour. The Excel V treatment is non-invasive and non-surgical which means there is minimal downtime! This new and advanced technology treats redness by utilising micro-pulses of laser light briefly directed at the skin. Once the vessel abnormalities and redness are treated, the pigment of the skin looks clearer and more even, returning back to its normal shade. Excel V works by administering a powerful green laser that is absorbed by the abnormal blood vessels in the skin. The laser heats the abnormal vessels, causing the vein walls to seal and collapse. Over time, the vessels will no longer be visible, and several treatments may be necessary to achieve desired results.
Excel V uses advanced technology that combines two powerful lasers to reduce discolouration and promote a more even skin tone. Specific issues can also be targeted, including stubborn sun spots, freckles, and skin tags plus many more concerns without abrading the surrounding skin surface. Cutera utilises advanced technology that differs from other devices currently available, with faster treatment times, better skin response, and fewer risks of adverse reactions. The Excel V’s technology includes dual lasers, with a 532nm laser and a 1064nm Nd laser. The 532nm wavelength specifically targets surface-level pigmentation, and as the pigments absorb the light waves they begin to solidify and coagulate, lifting further to the surface. You will notice an immediate change in colour and within 3-6 days the pigmentation will begin to flake off the skin, revealing a clearer complexion. The 1064nm laser is also specifically for blood vessels that are deeper and pigmentation with a darker tone.
Laser Genesis is a treatment that’s suitable for all skin types. During our laser genesis procedure, we use our Cutera Excel V laser to gently heat the skin below the surface. This “healthy heat” stimulates our body’s own natural healing response, which helps to improve many indications within the skin. It is proven to not only minimise fine lines but also to reduce large pores, and uneven, crepey, or pebbled skin texture, alongside overall redness and flushing. It is safe for all skin types including patients suffering from rosacea. There is also no downtime and the results are seen immediately, with long-term improvements over time as well.
The Excel V Laser treatment is another popular and effective treatment from Cutera. It is a device that can address more than thirty types of skin conditions, including facial/leg vein and acne scars. It involves the use of a dual wavelength laser, with 532nm and 1064nm wavelengths for maximum effectiveness.
The 532nm wavelength laser is notably effective on issues such as rosacea and telangiectasis, while the 1064nm wavelength includes further treatments for issues such as leg/periorbital veins, venous lakes and venous malformations.
The Excel V Laser treatment can address the following skin conditions:
With an Excel V Laser treatment, there is minimal to no downtime. You’ll be able to leave the clinic soon after the treatment and can even potentially return to work on the same day.
After you have received an Excel V Laser treatment, you should avoid exposure to heat for at least forty-eight hours. This can include saunas, sun exposure and exercise. For the treatment to be effective, you’ll also need to avoid skin care products with Vitamin C, tretinoin and benzoyl peroxide until all redness has subsided.
