The Cutera Excel V is highly effective in treating several vascular conditions in men and women of all skin tones. That’s why we offer it at our Vein Clinic in Augusta! The Excel V laser treats blue veins around the eyes, blue, red, or purple spider veins of the legs, benign pigmented lesions, and sun-damaged areas of skin that are tan or brown.

How does the Excel V Laser work?
Excel V uses the most advanced laser technology to safely and effectively treat various vessels from tiny spider veins to deep blue reticular veins. Patients with dark, light, or tanned skin can experience outstanding results.
The laser delivers pulses of light energy, which causes the blood within the vein to coagulate. Eventually, this destroys the vessel, and it reabsorbs into the body—the blood flow then redirects to veins deeper below your skin’s surface, where it should be.
What about Sclerotherapy for leg veins?
Dr. Sherman determines with you if sclerotherapy or laser therapy will be most effective. The necessary treatment depends on the type, size, and color of the spider and reticular veins.
What does it feel like to experience the Excel V Laser treatment?
The treatment delivers pulses of energy that our patients often describe as feeling like a stinging sensation, which can be taken to a minimum by applying numbing cream prior to treatment when requested. The Excel V laser also uses a proprietary cooling mechanism to avoid discomfort. Following the treatment, pain is minimal to non-existent. Dr. Sherman of Vein Specialists of Augusta has 25+ years of experience as a surgeon and offers medically safe solutions to treat vein disease and vascular lesions. Learn more.
How long does an Excel V Laser treatment take?
The treatment takes 15-30 minutes on average. The variation depends on how many areas we treat. Book your consultation with us in Augusta, Georgia to learn about your options.
How long is the downtime?
There can be an initial period of redness, swelling, or bruising, which is always temporary and dissipates over time. Most people recover over 48 hours.
When will I see the results?
Most of our patients at Vein Specialist of Augusta find that the treated area shows a significant improvement within 2-6 weeks of treatment. Your final results might not be apparent for several months.
What do I need to know before my first Excel V treatment?
We recommend wearing compression stockings for 48 hours after spider vein treatment and/or refraining from activities that pump blood to the lower legs, such as hiking, biking, or treadmill.
