What is Cutera Excel V+ Laser?

Rosacea laser treatment is performed with our FDA-approved Cutera V+ laser. The Excel V+ laser uses a high-power green laser in order to target blood vessels and pigment with abnormalities. The excel V+ laser treatment works through the targeted application of clinically proven laser wavelengths. We target these wavelengths to specific areas of skin concern and work to diminish uneven tone and stimulate rejuvenation.

The wide range of conditions that this treatment can address includes facial redness, Rosacea, port wine stains, leg veins, and venous lakes (purple lesions on the lips). Unlike some other lasers, there is no anesthesia required during the procedure, thanks to the automatic cooling technology, which produces continuous cooling throughout your treatment, maximising patient comfort.

Before & After Gallery

“Noticeable results”, Helen (50)

“I’ve always found the staff to be lovely, and have enjoyed noticeable results in the treatment of my Rosacea.”

“I’m really happy now”, Barbara (29)

“For the past 4-5 years, my main problem has been redness or rosacea on my face. My skin started to burn and feel itchy, blotchy and there were red patches particularly on my chin, cheeks and my nose area.

For years, I went to see a dermatologist in London who put me on antibiotic courses one after the other with less and less success.  really felt that they let me down, as the antibiotics courses were so intense and at the end I developed some health issues, infections etc.

I could hardly believe my luck that there was a skin and face clinic in Farnham, where I live and booked a consultation with Dr Tailor at once. She listened to my concerns and discussed every step with me in detail, what is going to happen, how the products and treatments work and then she proposed a personal treatment plan for my problem. She used a digital equipment to map up my face and analyse the state of my skin underneath. I learnt so much about my skin, the skin cycle and skin health in general!

So I started with some selected medicated products from the so-called ZO skincare range and also had a HydraFacial treatment to cleanse and optimise my skin health before the procedure (laser therapy). I have been to one HydraFacial treatment and I loved it! It was so nice and my skin got so clean and glowing.

The products are AMAZING, especially the serum called Rozatrol. After first use, I didn’t have red face at all! I love this product and could not believe that a single application of a serum could have such a huge effect on my skin.

My new skin regime has changed everything. I have been using the ZO products for 6 weeks now, and after 4 weeks I came back for a control skin analysis and the results have been amazing! Beforehand, my skin was red, blotchy and burning and these products just changed everything.

I’m really grateful to Dr Tailor and all the staff members to have helped me when I was in despair and felt lost. I’m really happy now and can’t wait to have more Hydrafacial treatments and look forward to the laser treatment in a few weeks’ time.

Thank you!”

Frequently Asked Questions

The excel V+ laser treatment works through the targeted application of clinically proven laser wavelengths. We target these wavelengths to specific areas of skin concern and work to diminish uneven tone and stimulate rejuvenation.

This allows the excel V+ to address skin imperfections and stimulate collagen regrowth by gently heating the upper dermis below the surface of the skin. This process smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles, while dilated veins and capillaries receive extra heat to reduce redness and promote an even complexion. Throughout the treatment, the laser safely zeros in on areas of concern, such as the blood vessels that are a hallmark of rosacea and spider veins, and destroys them while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.

Most people with vascular lesions will be suitable for treatment. You will need to attend for an assessment to check if you are suitable for treatment and how many sessions are needed. Any skin type (1-6) can be treated with this laser.

The treatment is not painful and at most you may notice slight discomfort.

Depending upon your skin type (and the lesion we treat), there is redness and swelling in the treated area for up to 2-3 days after treatment. However, we can significantly reduce the swelling and enhance the healing by having Dermalux LED Light Therapy immediately after the laser treatment.

The treated area may also appear darker for 5-7 days after treatment but this will clear shortly afterwards.

Most areas of the body can be treated with the Excel V+ laser.

Using ZO Skin Health by Dr Zein Obagi is essential for those wishing to combat rosacea. Rosacea is a sebum related disease and ZO Skin Health effectively controls this while restoring the skins healthy barrier function. This can combat and control the symptoms of Rosacea especially when using the hero product Rozatrol.

Dermalux LED Light therapy is excellent at controlling the inflammation of rosacea and can help to promote healing after a laser treatment.

HydraFacials are a key component of treating Rosacea especially Bespoke Medicated HydraFacials using the Rozatrol treatment which combines HydraFacial technology and ZO Skin Health in one.
