Benign and unwanted pigmentation got you down? Laser Excel V and IPL can help!

If unwanted pigmentation is knocking your confidence, it’s time to make a change. A new approach to treating vascular and benign pigmented conditions, Laser Excel V and IPL are two treatments that can help to reduce the appearance of pigmentation, and return your skin to a much healthier looking state.

What is Excel V?
It is the most advanced aesthetic technology that combines two powerfully precise lasers to target and eliminate vascular concerns (redness, unsightly veins) and benign pigmented lesions (age spots, sun spots, discolouration) on the face and body.

What does Excel V Treat?
The less invasive of the two treatments, Excel V is great for individual spot treatments. Nearly twenty unique aesthetic and dermatologic skin concerns. The most common Excel V treatments include rosacea, facial and leg veins, age/brown spots and acne scars.

How does Excel V work?
Your therapist will select one of Excel V's two lasers and customise the treatment settings to target the colour and depth of your skin concern. Most treatments are finished in just a few minutes.

What is IPL?
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. This treatment involves quick and powerful flashes of light penetrating the skin’s surface, where melanin exists.

What does IPL Treat?
Although a slightly more intensive process than Excel V, IPL covers a greater surface area all at once so is better for overall rejuvenation. This procedure reduces redness, and blotchy brown areas at the same time as stimulating collagen production and brightening skin.

How does IPL work?
The heat caused from IPL breaks down the melanin pigment into small particles which will either rise to the skin’s surface and be naturally removed, or the particles will be carried away by the body’s lymphatic system. IPL is an extremely effective way of treating pigmentation, with real and visible results.
