Excelv Treatment: Improved appearance at the speed of light

Skin can develop a variety of pigmentation irregularities from genetics and sun exposure. Historically, theses spots were treated with chemical peels, dermabrasion, cryotherapy (freezing), or topical prescription medications. While these remain viable options, ExcelV laser treatment is quickly gaining popularity for comfort, fast results, and effectiveness. ExcelV treatment is available to North County San Diego at Skin & Vein Institute in Encinitas.

Conditions treated with ExcelV

  • Red spots It is best to prevent or reduce risk of developing red spots, with daily use of sunscreen. However, ExcelV removes them almost instantly. Topical numbing is applied, and the procedure is essentially painless. The entire face can be treated in about 20 minutes, and there is little to no downtime. Results are long lasting. However, maintenance treatments are sometimes needed for new red spots that form from continued sun exposure. Laser therapy can be combined with other treatments.
  • Brown spotsThe ExcelV laser selectively targets brown color in spots and removes it from skin. Topical numbing ensures your comfort, while full-face treatment is completed in about 20 minutes. There is virtually no downtime. Results are enduring. However, due to living in sunny San Diego, some maintenance may be necessary, and sunscreen is essential!
  • Wisdom spotsThese raised, rough brown spots show up on skin unexpectedly. Sometimes called “barnacles,” they are an inherited trait. Wisdom spots are easily treated with a simple laser procedure that is quick and painless. Treatment leaves a small wound (similar to a scraped knee), but it typically heals within a week. Treated spots rarely grow back although new ones can form.











The number of laser sessions needed depends on the size, color, and thickness of the spots. Many patients see dramatic improvement after just one treatment.

IPL or ExcelV to treat red and brown spots manifested by sun damage on the face

IPL or ExcelV can be used to treat red and brown spots manifested by sun damage on the face, neck, chest or backs of hands. IPL as a broad spectrum of light, cannot target anything specifically unlike ExcelV. Even though a single treatment of IPL is cheaper, ExcelV is less costly as only one or two treatments are needed for recovery.
