Excel HR Leg Vein Removal
A simple, non-invasive treatment to target and erase broken vessels at the skin's surface. The treatment can target red spider veins, purple spider veins and reticular (deeper blue) veins.

The Excel HR is a safe and effective laser that exposes broken vessels to pulses of filtered light. The broken vessels will absorb this light and heat up, destroying the damaged vein, while leaving the surrounding tissue undamaged.
