At Universal Dermatology & Vein Care, lasers are used for the treatment of vascular conditions such as broken facial capillaries, rosacea and port wine stains. In particular, the Excel V laser is most commonly used on the face, neck, chest, back and hands. The Excel V is also applicable for the treatment of pigmentation concerns such as freckles, seborrheic keratosis and dermatosis papulosa nigra.
There are a number of medical lasers, each designed to target different problems. The Excel V laser has two frequencies for the treatment of skin conditions, namely, 532 nanometres (KTP), and 1064 nanometres (Nd:YAG). The light of KTP laser will be selectively attracted to the blood in capillaries and the melanin in the skin, making it an ideal laser for treating broken capillaries, rosacea, freckles, sunspots, and pigmentation. The Excel V laser is a deeper penetrating laser that can be used to treat spider leg veins, deeper facial veins, and to selectively remove hair follicles for laser hair removal.
The Excel V Laser can selectively treat a variety of skin problems with minimal or no disruption to the surrounding normal skin:
- Pigmentation, sunspots, freckles, sun-damaged skin
- Capillaries, and rosacea
- Removal of some raised spots e.g seborrheic keratosis, dermatosis papulosa nigra, skin tags
- Permanent hair reduction
- Treatment of pseudofolliculitis or ingrown hairs
- Treatment of leg veins, capillaries
- Treatment of venous lakes
- Port wine stains
