Austin, Texas (PRWEB) November 29, 2011
Westlake Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery, a leading provider of medical dermatology, cosmetic procedures and plastic surgery in Central Texas, announced today it is now offering Cutera Excel V to treat a wide range of vascular conditions. For the millions of Americans coping with the physical, emotional and social effects of vascular skin conditions, the search for a simple and cost-effective treatment has been frustrating until now.
The Excel V system uses a unique high-power green laser to precisely treat visible vessels, broken capillaries, spider veins, vascular lesions and skin discoloration. The laser light is absorbed by abnormal blood vessels in the skin, which heats and eliminates the vessels, ultimately restoring normal skin tone and color. The technology in the Excel V has been proven effective in treating a wide range of skin conditions, including rosacea, facial veins, port wine stains, telangiectasia and cherry angiomas. Excel V also incorporates the latest innovations in cooling technologies enabling the doctor to deliver higher doses directly to the affected lesion with less pain than traditional laser systems.
People seeking healthier looking skin are often faced with the untenable options of invasive medical procedures associated with undesirable side effects. Treatment of port wine stains, for example, has included radiation, freezing, and surgery, often resulting in pain and scarring. Similarly, spider leg veins are most commonly treated by sclerotherapy, an invasive procedure that requires patients to wear compression stockings after treatment and often includes an injection.
“Until now, treatments for some of these vascular conditions have been limited due to their invasiveness or unwanted side effects,” said Dr. Gregory Nikolaidis, president of Westlake Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery. “The design of the Excel V laser includes a unique cooling mechanism to prevent damage to surrounding skin, and the great thing is that there is no downtime for patients.”
Treatment with the Excel V laser system can be customized to each patient’s unique skin condition and can be adjusted to treat different depths and sizes, from superficial blemishes to deep vascular scars. For more information about Excel V visit: http://www.westlakedermatology.com.
