Cutera skin rejuvenation laser system earns Health Canada approval

Laser- and light-based aesthetic systems provider Cutera (Brisbane, CA) has earned Health Canada approval for its Excel V laser, which provides vascular, pigment and overall skin rejuvenation treatments. Now available to clinicians in Canada, the dual-wavelength laser workstation targets skin imperfections, including diffuse redness, spider and leg veins, and photo rejuvenation, states Kevin Connors, Cutera president and CEO.

The Excel V laser features two handpieces: the first includes a 532 nm laser optimized for superficial vessels and pigments and a 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser that can treat challenging vascular conditions, such as leg veins, port wine stains and hemangiomas (capillary abnormalities). The second, Genesis V, for facial rejuvenation, provides a gentle and collagen-producing solution for fine lines, uneven texture and premature aging without downtime. Both handpieces feature sapphire windows with real-time calibration and spot size adjustment enable precision for each targeted lesion.
