How does Cutera excel V work?
We’ll select one of Cutera excel V’s two precise lasers and customize the treatment settings to target the color and depth of your skin concern.
What are the benefits of Cutera excel V?
For most procedures, Cutera 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.
How many treatments will I need?
Most treatments require only one to two treatment sessions. The number of treatments will vary based on your condition. During your consultation, we will discuss a customized treatment plan just for you.
Is the treatment painful?
Cutera excel V treatments can feel similar to a pinprick or a rubber band snapping at the skin. Depending on the procedure you have, a cold treatment tip will be in contact with the skin to protect and provide comfort to the area. Additionally, a topical anesthetic may be available to improve your treatment experience.
Are there any side effects? What about downtime?
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 three to six 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. In some cases, you may receive a topical steroid to reduce swelling as needed.
