The Excel V laser system from Cutera can treat more than 20 different types of skin discoloration and vascular issues, including brown and red spots, rosacea, spider veins, acne scars, port-wine stains, and scars. It’s safe for all skin types and tones.
The Excel V has two wavelengths:
The 532 nm wavelength treats superficial vascular lesions like rosacea, redness, and spider veins.
The 1064 nm wavelength treats deeper, darker vascular lesions, such as veins around the legs and eyes, as well as venous lakes (benign vascular lesions that commonly affect the lips, face, and ears) and vascular malformations.
The laser works by delivering pulses of light energy that cause the blood within the vein to coagulate. This eventually destroys the vessels, which are gradually resorbed by your body. Blood flow is then redirected to veins deeper below the skin’s surface.

For most procedures, excel V provides quick treatments with best results within just a few days. Most procedures only take 5 to 10 minutes but some may take up to 45 minutes.
Most treatments require only one to two treatment sessions. The number of treatments will vary based on your condition. Your excel V provider will discuss a customized treatment plan during your consultation.
Excel V+ treatments can feel similar to a rubber band snapping against skin. Depending on the procedure, a cooled treatment tip will be in contact with the skin to protect and provide comfort to the area.
A: 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.
This place is fantastic, the office is seems to be brand new and extremely modern, the staff is very polite which is a hard thing to come by (usually staff at the front desk at most doctors offices are very rude, dismissive and unwilling to accommodate patients). Most importantly, the doctor. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable but he actually takes the time to delve deeper into my medical history to pinpoint exactly what might be contributing to my dermatologic issues. I will definitely continue to visit this practice in the future.
I’ve known Dr. Geria for several years. Not only is he an excellent doctor, he also has the best bedside manner and listens to my concerns. He had treated me for medical and some cosmetic treatments. I trust him completely. His staff is also amazing!
Dr. Geria is an extremely knowledgeable and experienced dermatologist. Making an appointment with his clinic is super easy via the online portal. His clinic is also very nicely done.
Amazing service. Amazing dermatologist . He spent a long time with me, talking about my needs and concerns. Dr Geria explained what he thought about my acne and scarring in detail. He wasn’t just in and out like some doctors can be. He took the time to analyze my skin and put together a plan of recommendations. Another bonus Hydrafacial – offered on site. Recommended by Dr Geria, my skin has never looked better. Amazing staff and a beautiful office. The prescriptions were sent over promptly also. 7 our of 5 stars.
