Vein Treatment in Exton, PA

The Excel V+ laser is the newest, most advanced laser for treating vascular skin conditions. It combines two different wavelengths to make it the most effective, versatile, and powerful vascular laser available. This includes a powerful 532nm KTP laser, in addition to two 1064nm Nd: Yag laser modes.

The Excel V+ has many benefits over other types of lasers and light treatments such as the pulse dye laser (V-Beam laser) and IPL treatments. Excel V+ is a versatile and powerful laser that can be more effective in treating vascular conditions and it can achieve this in less time (fewer treatments) than any other laser/light-based treatment.


The Excel V+ can treat vascular lesions of the head, neck, and body. This includes facial telangiectasias, facial redness, rosacea, cherry angiomas, venous lakes, bruising, port wain stains, leg veins, and red scars.

The Procedure

During your cosmetic consultation, Dr. Liu will discuss the specific details of your treatment. This may vary based on your treatment goals, your skin type, your medical history, and any other unique factors related to your care. In general, you should try to avoid excessive sun exposure for the week prior to your treatment. Your skin will need to be cleaned prior to treatment, so do not wear any makeup on the day of your appointment. Safety eye shields will be placed to protect your eyes during treatment. Most treatments will last between 15 and 45 minutes, depending on the area(s) treated. Afterward, you will be given instructions on how to care for your skin.

After Procedure

You can resume your daily activities immediately after the procedure. There is rarely any significant discomfort afterward. Depending on what type of lesion is treated, you may see results immediately. There may be no downtime, or your skin may be red for a few days, depending on the type of treatment.


Initially, you can have some increased redness over the treated areas. This generally lasts from just a few minutes to three days after the procedure. Medications generally are not necessary to alleviate any discomfort.

Vascular Conditions Treated By The Excel V+ Laser:

Facial Telangiectasia

These are dilated blood vessels that range between 0.1 to 2.0 mm in diameter. These are often small capillaries in the skin of the face. They are most commonly seen on the face around the nose, on the cheeks, and on the chin. They are a cosmetic concern for many people and are easily treated with the Excel V+ laser.


Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that often presents as facial redness. It is characterized by facial redness in the area of the cheeks, nose, and forehead. It can also affect other areas of the head, neck, and body. The redness is caused by small dilated blood vessels that are difficult to see individually with the human eye. Occasionally, larger dilated blood vessels are noticeable. The Excel V+ is one of the best laser treatments for rosacea.

Venous Lake

Venous lakes are large dilated blue veins that can be up to 1 cm in size. They are commonly seen on the lips but can also be seen on the face and on the ears. Laser treatment with Excel V+ for venous lakes is highly effective with most people only needing 1-2 treatments.


Cherry angiomas are small red bumps (raised dots) on the surface of the skin. They are usually 1-3 mm in diameter. They start small and can grow a little bit with time. Cherry angiomas can be located anywhere on the body and usually form in the early adult years and beyond. Sometimes they run in families and it is possible to have hundreds of cherry angiomas. Laser treatment for cherry angiomas is quick, effective, and well-tolerated.

Port Wine Stains

Also known as nevus flammeusport wine stains are birthmarks that are vascular in origin. They range in color from light pink to dark purple. They can occur anywhere on the body but are most common on the face.

Facial Redness

There are many causes for facial redness and this is commonly related to Rosacea. Excel V is an excellent laser treatment for facial redness.


Poikiloderma is characterized by red and brown pigmentation of the neck skin and chest skin. It is often a result of sun exposure and sun damage. Laser treatment for Poikiloderma can take several treatment sessions.

Leg Veins

Leg Veins are a result of dilated blood vessels in the legs and range in size from varicose veins to smaller telangiectasias that are also known as spider veins. These dilated blood vessels are seen in the lower extremities because of dependent flow abnormalities. It is much more commonly seen in women than in men. Smaller leg veins are treated with the Excel V laser. These generally take several or more sessions and result in significant improvement in the appearance of the legs.


Scars are generally noticeable when they have a different coloration from the skin of the surrounding areas. Scare are often more red compared to the surrounding skin. The Excel V is specifically helpful for these red scars. The Excel V laser is one of the best lasers for red scars and helps diminish their noticeability.


One added bonus of the Excel V laser is that it helps reduce the appearance of bruising and helps your body get rid of bruising faster than it normally will. Dr. Liu often uses the Excel V laser after surgical procedures in order to minimize downtime for her patients. Results can be seen immediately and bruises can be gone as soon as the next day after Excel V laser treatment for bruising.
