EXCEL LASER THERAPY FOR POST-PROCEDURE BRUISING

ARE YOU A CANDIDATE?

Excel V laser therapy is safe and effective for all skin tones, including light, dark and tanned skin. Good candidates for post-procedure bruising treatment have bruising that is darker and longer duration than is typical (e.g. persisting beyond 10 – 14 days post-procedure).

FAQ

WILL TREATMENTS HURT?

The Excel V laser uses a chill tip to rapidly cool the skin before the laser energy is delivered. This minimizes any discomfort and protects the skin. Most patients feel a slight stinging sensation briefly when the energy pulses are delivered.

WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF EXCEL LASER THERAPY FOR POST-PROCEDURE BRUISING?

There are few side effects with this treatment, although some patients may experience redness and minor swelling at the treatment site. This typically dissipates within a day.

HOW SOON WILL I SEE RESULTS?

The majority of patients find that visible bruises lighten several shades within minutes of treatment.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NECESSARY?

The number of treatments depends on the extent of bruising with larger darker bruises likely requiring several treatments. In many cases, patients see dramatic improvement after a single treatment, and many do not require repeat sessions. Patients may also use oral Arnica Montana and Bromelain if not contraindicated. In addition patients may benefit from topical use of Arnica + K Cream.
