What are the chances for hyperpigmentation with the ExcelV?
Doctor Answers 2
Always a possibilty
With any laser comes potential side effects including swelling, redness, pain, bruising, burns and change in pigmentation. I suggest consulting with a cosmetic dermatologist who has experience with lasers. Best, Dr. Emer
Excel V and risk for hyperpigmentation....
Thank you for your question. The risk for hyperpigmentation with the Excel V is low in the well trained experienced hands of a board certified Dermatologist. There are two different wavelengths in the Excel V, a 532 KTP and a 1064 nd:Yag so it is truly dependent upon what skin type you are, your genetic makeup, what condition you are treating, which handpiece you are using and the experience of your physician.
