Spider Vein Treatment in Reading

Posted August 02, 2019 in Spider Veins, Videos


The excel® V laser system uses a high-power green laser to precisely treat visible vessels, broken capillaries,
spider veins, vascular lesions, and skin discoloration. The laser light is absorbed by abnormal blood
vessels in the skin, which heats and eliminates the vessels, ultimately restoring normal skin tone and
color. The technology in the excel® V has been proven effective in treating a wide range of skin
conditions, including rosacea, facial veins, port wine stains, cherry angiomas, telangiectasia, neck
poikeloderma (redness of the neck), leg veins, (red and/or purple spider veins), sun damage, and
pigment on the face, neck, chest, and arms. The excel® V laser also incorporates the latest innovations in cooling
technologies enabling the doctor to deliver higher doses directly to the affected lesion with less pain
than traditional laser systems and no downtime for the patients. Most conditions can be resolved with
1 to 2 treatments.

Redness and/or swelling can be expected following treatment and will resolve within a few days.
Treated brown spots will darken and slough off within 3 to 6 days. For full-face treatments, swelling will
peak 24 to 48 hours post-treatment and usually resolves within a few days. Typically, you can wear
make-up and return to normal activities immediately. Your provider may recommend a topical steroid to
reduce swelling as needed.
