Changes in skin texture and coloration can because caused by a myriad of things. Some of us are born with conditions that affect our skin. Other changes to the skin like wrinkles and dark spots are just regular parts of the aging process. There are certainly plenty of treatments out there that claim to reduce and even eliminate wrinkles, dark spots, and other skin issues. But here at Perfect Skin Center in Scottsdale, AZ, we use Excel V Plus, a safe, non-invasive laser treatment with impressive results.
Excel V Plus
What Is It?
If you’re looking for ways to reduce dark pigmentation on changes to the texture of your skin, then Excel V Plus could be the right treatment for you. As we age, it’s normal for our skin to begin to show signs like dark spots or enlarged veins. Excel V Plus is a laser treatment that targets these areas to diminish and eliminate unwanted side effects of aging.
Excel V Plus also works to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, another major sign of aging as your skin begins to lose collagen. It can also be used to treat uneven skin textures, scars, and even enlarged pores.
Combining precision, speed, and a super-effective cooling system, Excel V Plus provides clients with incredibly effective and safe treatments for unwanted signs of aging as well as various other skin conditions.
How Does It Work?
A laser treatment like this one uses carefully researched and clinically proven wavelengths that are specifically absorbed by brown, blue, purple, and red chromophores. Chromophores are the part of the molecule that is responsible for its coloration. By targeting these specific chromophores, this laser treatment gets rid of discoloration and uneven coloration on your skin.
Discoloration caused by conditions like rosacea and sun damage can also be helped with this treatment.
If you are concerned about the appearance or number of wrinkles on your skin, then this treatment can also help to stimulate collagen. Collagen is a protein that is necessary for maintaining the structure of your skin, muscles, and other tissue.
As you get older, it’s natural for your body to begin seeing diminishing levels of collagen. By stimulating the production of more collagen, this laser treatment will help you see a significant reduction in the number and appearance of wrinkles.
Treating Vascular Lesions
Another major sign of aging is the dilation of your capillaries. Capillaries and other blood vessels change the older you get. Over time, they can become enlarged and may look very visible underneath the skin. This is something that many people may feel self-conscious about.
Excel V Plus’s heating technology targets these veins, giving them a little boost of heat to help reduce the redness of these vascular lesions. With consistent treatments, you’ll find that the appearance of these lesions is reduced significantly, leading to a much more even skin tone.
Who Is It Right for?
If you are concerned about the appearance and health of your skin, then Excel V Plus might be the right treatment for you. This is a great way for those showing unwanted signs of aging like wrinkles, dark spots, and enlarged capillaries to reduce and eliminate these signs.
It is also an effective treatment for anyone experiencing chronic skin discoloration issues. Rosacea is a chronic condition that causes redness of the face. Flare-ups can last for months. While the condition cannot be cured, a laser treatment like this one is a fantastic way to manage and reduce the appearance of your rosacea.
Finally, if you are someone who spends a lot of time in the sun, then this treatment is a great way to help mitigate sun damage. This includes both the tone of your skin as well as any texture issues caused by the sun.
What to Expect During Treatment
Before the treatment begins, your skin will be properly cleaned to allow the treatment to reach its maximum effectiveness.
During the treatment, the imperfections concerning you will be targeted with a super-precise laser pulse. The laser size can be adjusted in increments of 0.5mm to 1mm. This allows the laser to be even more precise, and target the specific area that requires treatment without affecting the surrounding skin. Your skin will also be cooled with the treatment’s cooling system before, during, and after each pulse is applied.
Overall, the process won’t take longer than 1 to 30 minutes. It’s fast, non-invasive, and painless.
What to Expect After Treatment
One of the benefits of seeking out laser treatment for your skin issues and concerns is that you’re able to get back to your life quickly. Because there is no need for a general anesthetic and because the treatment itself is fast and painless, you’re able to go about your normal day immediately after the treatment is finished.
As for results, after about one to three weeks you’ll find that the dark spots targeted by the laser will begin to fade or even flake off. The redness will dissipate quickly, and you’ll find yourself with a much more even skin tone.
Our dermatologists will help you determine how many treatments will be necessary for you to achieve the best results with Excel V Plus. In general, most patients require about four to six treatments. The results may appear subtle at first, but after treatment, you’ll notice an improvement in the texture and complexion of your skin.
