Cutera Excel V Laser for Port Wine Stains and Broken Capillaries - British Columbia

Had the excel v laser by cutera to treat two bright red spots on my cheek (each about around 1cm x 2 cm in size). The doctor said they were both port wine stains with broken capillaries. I had one session three weeks ago and am extremely happy with the results. The broken capillaries have vanished and the red patches are much smaller and lighter. I highly recommend this procedure, but PLEASE NOTE that each of the spots turned dark purple for around 1 week. The Excel V is advertised as "little to no down time" with a possibility of redness or swelling. This is a major understatement. If you are planning on having this done just be advised that you will be swollen for 2 days and have dark purple, nearly navy blue marks on your face for nearly a week. The doctor was great and advised me before the procedure that this would happen, though this information isn't widely available when researching the Excel V independently.
