It houses your smile and holds the windows to your soul. Your face is certainly one of your most defining characteristics, as it’s something you show to the world every single day. So when ageing, genetics and environmental factors create physical changes to the face, you may begin to feel uncomfortable with your own appearance.
Over the years, it’s not uncommon to notice dramatic transformations to your facial canvas. But many people experience skin quality and texture changes in other areas as well, including the neck, chest and legs. In today’s world, there are a multitude of options for treating skin irregularities, but at Bayside Cosmetic Medicine Clinic we offer something truly unique.
We are the only clinic in the Redlands to provide the excel V laser to our clients. By resurfacing the skin and enhancing overall tone and texture, this laser treatment can correct many different skin conditions, including:
- Port wine stains
- Venous lakes
- Facial veins
- Leg veins
- Age spots
- Skin tags
- Acne scars
The excel V Difference
Unlike traditional lasers, the excel V laser uses two different wavelengths to allow for a more precise treatment. The excel V’s dual wavelengths produce a green laser light that is easily absorbed by blood vessels, allowing vascular lesions and miscellaneous skin spots to be significantly reduced. By entering the blood vessels, the green laser light causes the veins to break down and eventually be absorbed by the body over time.
Many lasers being used today are either too abrasive and peel away layers of skin or they don’t penetrate deep enough into the skin to produce desired results. When you choose the excel V laser treatment, you can effectively minimize or eliminate many of your skin conditions. Other advantages of the excel V laser over other lasers, include:
- Treatment that is customizable to meet your needs
- Very minimal discomfort
- No anesthetic or IV sedation required
- Long-lasting results
- Almost no downtime necessary
The Treatment Process
On the day of your treatment, your clinician will first apply a lubricant to allow the laser to glide more easily over your skin. Then, based on your specific skin concerns and overall aesthetic goals, your clinician will adjust the settings of the excel V to meet your unique needs. Your practitioner will begin by using a special device to help keep your temperature level during treatment, while simultaneously administering pulses of light to your problem areas.
Many clients, both men and women alike, enjoy the simplicity of this treatment, since the entire process is both quick and painless. In fact, most patients have a relatively comfortable experience with the excel V since their skin is being constantly cooled during treatment. If anything, you may notice a slight stinging sensation while the laser works away at your skin irregularities.
Following your session, it’s possible you will have some slight bruising, swelling or redness on your treatment areas. This is a normal and should subside after a couple of days. As for the recovery process, there really isn’t one. Most of our patients return to their everyday routines within a day or two following treatment, but we suggest limiting direct sunlight and strenuous exercises for the first few days. Detailed care instructions will be discussed with you during your initial consultation.
The excel V laser treatment is a safe and effective way for both men and women to rid their skin of irregularities. Whether you are battling rosacea, spider veins or surgical scars, consider receiving the excel V laser treatment to enhance your complexion and overall appearance.
When you come to Bayside Cosmetic Medicine Clinic for a consultation, your practitioner will examine your problem areas to determine if this treatment is right for you. Many patients notice improvement after just one session, but depending on your unique concerns it may take several treatments to achieve your optimal results.
During your first visit, we will help craft an individualised treatment plan that will provide you with the smoother, more youthful skin you desire. This consultation is also the perfect opportunity to have your questions and concerns addressed in a private setting.
