a new approach to treating vascular skin conditions

 

Millions of Americans are affected by vascular skin conditions, such as rosacea, spider veins and telangiectasia, which can cause unsightly broken blood vessels, discoloration and lesions to appear on the skin of the face and legs. People affected by these skin conditions often report embarrassment or self-consciousness, which can deter them from joining social occasions or even going out in public. While much progress has been made in identifying the causes of these conditions, treatment options have been largely limited to procedures that incur adverse side effects on patients, such as electrosurgery, sclerotherapy and surgery.

 

Excel V is a new approach to treating vascular skin conditions that puts patients’ safety and comfort first.  The system uses a unique high power green laser that is absorbed by abnormal blood vessels in the skin.  The laser heats and eliminates the abnormal vessels, ultimately restoring normal skin tone and color.  Excel V can be customized to each patient’s skin condition, enabling precise and effective treatment of everything from superficial blemishes to deep scars.  The system leverages innovative cooling technologies to ensure patient comfort, and there are no long-term side effects or downtime.

Q:  How does Excel V work?

A:  Excel V, which was developed by Cutera, is a new laser system for providing treatment of a variety of vascular skin conditions. Many skin conditions manifest in the form of broken or abnormal blood vessels in the skin, such is the case with rosacea, in which the facial blood vessels dilate excessively causing redness and flushing. Excel V treats these conditions by administering a unique high power green laser that is absorbed by the abnormal blood vessels in the skin.  The laser heats the abnormal vessels until they are removed.  At the end of treatment, the patient’s natural skin tone and color are restored.

 

Q:  What specific conditions does Excel V treat?

A:  Excel V has been shown effective at treating a number of conditions, including rosacea, telangiectasias, leg veins, port wine stains, and cherry angiomas. Excel V treats mild and severe forms of these conditions. The system may also have a   cosmetic benefit for patients who have skin lesions or scars from past injuries or surgeries.

 

Q:  What are the benefits of Excel V compared with other treatment options?

A:  The benefit of Excel V is that the treatment can be highly adjusted to ensure that the physician is delivering a level of treatment that specifically matches the patient’s skin condition. The system contains various wavelength modes, allowing the delivery of both short pulses for superficial blemishes, such as small lesions and skin discoloration, and longer pulses for deeper vascular conditions, such as leg veins and nodular port wine stains. It also offers a wide range of laser spot sizes to ensure that small treatment areas can be targeted at greater precision and larger areas can be treated in a shorter period. This high level of customization is what makes Excel V so effective at treating, often in one session, so many different conditions, which, in the past, would have required several different systems or procedures. 

 

Q:  Are there other laser treatment options available for these skin conditions?

A:  Yes, there are other laser treatment options available for skin conditions. The challenge usually associated with laser treatment is tailoring the treatment to precisely match the patient’s unique skin condition. Some existing lasers may be effective for treating a condition at one size and depth, but may not work effectively on conditions that affect a larger area.

 

Q:  What is the level of demand for treatment of skin conditions?

A:  The prevalence of vascular skin conditions varies greatly.  Rosacea is one of the most common conditions, affecting about 14 million Americans. Many people with Rosacea may not even realize they have it even when common symptoms are present such as redness in the face and flushing after consumption of alcohol, caffeine or spicy foods.

Another fairly common condition is cherry angiomas, which are small red bumps that spontaneously appear on the skin. These kind of lesions are commonly found in middle-aged populations—more than 85% of people over 45 years of age have several cherry angiomas. [1]

Spider veins also is a fairly common condition although the exact prevalence varies according to different sources. Port wine stains, another condition which Excel V treats, is a more rare condition, occurring in about 3 out of every 1,000 people. These are a type of birthmark often appearing on the face in which swollen blood vessels cause a reddish-purplish discoloration of the skin.[2]

Although these conditions represent some of the most common cases for which the Excel V laser system provide     treatment, the robust customization of the system makes it ideal for also treating more general cosmetic problems such as superficial blemishes, discoloration and even scars. Given that the large majority of people have one or more of these conditions to varying degrees, almost anyone could potentially benefit from treatment with Excel V.

 

Q:  How is the procedure performed?

A:  After an initial consultation with the patient, the physician determines if treatment with the Excel V is appropriate. Unlike other procedures, injections or topical anesthesia are not required throughout the duration of the 15 – 30 minute procedure.  Depending on the condition, the physician places the Excel V hand piece over the affected areas of the skin until the abnormal vessels diminish. To minimize discomfort  and protect the patient’s skin,  the Excel V uses a proprietary cooling mechanism.

 

Q:  What skin types does Excel V treat?

A:  All skin types indentified in the Fitzpatrick skin type classification can be treated with the Excel V system. This classification denotes 6 different skin types, ranging from very light (type I) to very dark (type VI).  The 532nm wavelength is ideal for treating skin types I – IV and the 1064nm mode can be used on all skin types I - VI.

 

Q:  How many treatments for vascular concerns are needed?

A:  The number of sessions depends on various parameters, including the size, thickness and color of the vascular lesion. Superficial vascular lesions such as small telangiectasia and diffused redness are easiest to treat; some patients might see significant improvement after just one treatment.
