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 some including rosacea, body and facial veins, pigmentations, skin tags, skin tightening and more!
The Excel V laser was designed, tested and manufactured by the worlds leading company in laser devices and technology CUTERA. After working collaboratively with world-renowned professors, physicians, cosmetic doctors and surgeons and more! Cutera was able to create a device that treats more than 30 aesthetic and dermatologic skin concerns including rosacea, facial and leg veins, age/brown spots as well as acne scars with little to no limit on the patient’s fitzpatrick. Our Excel V utilises a high-performance dual-wavelength laser of 532nm and 1064nm providing 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 on 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 that way our therapist can 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 pre-care and aftercare. This will also give you the opportunity to have any questions or queries regarding your treatment answered.
Patients will be able to feel comfortable during any procedure as Cuteras Excel V has a sapphire cooling tip that allows for cooling of the exact area that is treated. It also allows for pre, parallel, and post pulse cooling, leading to a safer and more comfortable treatment, with less risk to the skin aiding in any sort of discomfort leaving the treatment to be as comfortable as possible compared to other laser devices that are on the market. Most people describe minimal discomfort as if a rubber band is 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 imperfection that is being treated. The laser heats it up until the imperfection is removed or 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 area that you are having treated.
It’s normal to experience some swelling and perhaps some mild bruising after having Excel V Laser treatment. But, there is no need to worry as this normally resolves 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 why you are having Excel V Laser.
There is little to no downtime associated with Excel V Laser treatment, which makes it appeal to a lot of patients that want to correct imperfections on their face and body. Patients will be able to leave the clinic soon after having treatment. You can return to your normal routine straight away. Most patients do not take time off work for Excel V Laser treatment; even returning to the office the same day.
If you have imperfections, such as broken blood vessels and veins, acne scarring, redness, flushing, or rosacea, then you can be a suitable candidate for Excel V Laser treatment. This procedure can be used to treat so many indications 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, which means 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 any concerns of 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 concerns of redness by utilising micro-pulses of laser light directed at the skin for very brief time periods. Once the targeted areas of vessel abnormalities and redness are treated, the pigment of the skin looks clearer more even and back to its normal shade Excel V works by administering a unique high-power green laser that is absorbed by the abnormal blood vessels in the skin. The laser heats the abnormal vessels causing the vein walls to collapse and seal shut. Over time, the vessels will no longer be visible. Several treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired result.
Excel V uses an advanced technology that combines two powerful and precise lasers to reduce discolouration and promote a more even skin tone with the ability to target specific areas of concern like stubborn sun spots, freckles and skin tags plus many more concerns without abrading the surrounding skin surface. Cutera has used the most advanced technology that differs from all other laser devices you may see on the market giving the added advantage of faster treatment times, better skin response and fewer risks of adverse reactions for patient safety. The excel v had two lasers within the one device, for pigmentation we are utilising a 532nm wavelength to specifically target surface-level pigmentation, 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.
Laser Genesis is a treatment for everyone! During our laser genesis procedure, we use our new 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, uneven, crepe-paper type or pebbled skin texture, and overall redness and flushing. It is safe for all skin types including patients suffering from rosacea. Best of all there is no downtime and the results are seen immediately as well as over time giving long term improvements within the skin.
