How does the treatment work?

This is what our Cutera Excel V + laser device does best!  It works by using special, specific wavelengths of light to target the red blood vessels found in the skin. The laser heats and closes up the weakened vessels that have surfaced. Your body then absorbs and breaks down the damaged vessel.

What does it feel like?

The treatment is very manageable, we like to describe the sensation like a warm elastic band flicking the skin.

How many treatments will you need?

Most patients find they need 2-3 treatments performed 6 weeks apart, followed by a 6 monthly maintenance treatment or as needed.

Is there any down time?

Immediately post your laser treatment, your skin will appear red. This redness usually lasts a few hours. Some people experience mild swelling usually lasting 2-7 days. This can appear in the form of fuller cheeks, puffy under eye area or even in the appearance of mosquito bites over the treated area. Petechiae, the appearance of purple/ red bruise-like spots are common! Not everyone experiences this, however if you do don’t panic! It is very normal and will subside usually within a week or two. You can wear makeup immediately post, however we recommend the Oxygenetix range, specifically made to be applied post procedure.
