Laser Treatment Q & A

What skin conditions can laser therapy treat?

Laser therapy can help minimize the effects of a range of skin conditions. Dr. Chan uses the excel VTM by Cutera, a state-of-the-art laser technology that treats age-related and vascular skin conditions, including:

  • Fine lines
  • Rosacea
  • Pigmented spots
  • Spider veins

How common are these skin conditions?

Almost everyone develops fine lines throughout the aging process, and factors such as ample UV ray exposure and smoking tend to make them worse. Rosacea is among the most common skin conditions, causing skin redness and acne-like bumps in over 16 million of Americans.

Hyperpigmentation — in which patches of your skin to become darker-colored than the surrounding skin — is also common. It can affect anyone, regardless of race. One form of hyperpigmentation is age spots, also known as liver spots, which can worsen from sun exposure.

Spider veins are common and are more likely if they run in your family or if you use birth control pills, spend a lot of time on your feet, carry excess pounds or are experiencing hormonal shifts due to pregnancy or menopause.

How does excel V laser therapy work?

This powerful green laser targets abnormal blood vessels and pigment in your skin. The targeted heat from the laser eliminates them, restoring your skin’s natural tone and color. Dr. Chan can adjust and customize the excel V treatment to your specific needs, using shorter pulses for superficial issues, such as skin discoloration, and longer pulses for deeper vein-related problems.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of laser treatments you need varies depending on factors such as the size of the treatment area. The customization capabilities of the excel V make it more effective than other laser systems, often leading to fewer sessions — potentially as few as one — for you to get your desired results.

What is an excel V treatment session like?

After your initial consultation, in which Dr. Chan asks you about your goals and overall health and examines your desired treatment areas, he decides on the specifics of your treatment. Because excel V laser therapy is virtually painless, you will not require anesthesia.

During your treatment, he moves the laser hand piece over your affected skin areas, and you may feel coolness on your skin. This mechanism is built into the excel V to minimize discomfort. In all, each treatment takes about 15-30 minutes.
