Redness is a common concern that can have a serious effect one’s quality of life and confidence. Depending on the cause of your redness, a series of treatments with a vascular laser can significantly reduce facial redness (erythema.) Vascular laser is safe, effective and has little downtime.
Vascular lasers target blood vessels in the skin to shrink them smaller, or eliminate them altogether. At Southern Dermatology, we employ the Excel V+™ laser by Cutera, which is a powerful laser that is now regarded as the Gold Standard laser.
The Excel V+ is a cutting-edge vascular laser, that uses two proven wavelengths of light to target the vasculature at different depths of the skin. The versatility of the Excel V+ system allows us to treat a wide range of vascular conditions on all skin types.
Vascular lasers treat conditions associated with broken or abnormal blood vessels by targeting haemoglobin in red blood cells. The Excel V+ emits a unique, high-power laser light that is absorbed by blood vessels.
As the laser delivers pulses of light energy into the vessels, the heat generated destroys the vessel. Without a vessel to carry it, there is no way blood can flow to the skin, thus reducing redness.
