Los Angeles Plastic Surgery Practice Now Offering Excel V Laser

August 15, 2011,


Marina Plastic Surgery is the first treatment location in California to offer the Excel V laser by Cutera® to help treat superficial facial redness and deep vein disorders.

Marina Del Rey, CA (August 15, 2011) – Los Angeles plastic surgery specialist Grant Stevens, MD, FACS, announced today that Marina Plastic Surgery is the first medical site in California to offer the Cutera® Excel V laser for treatment of superficial and deep vascular problems using high hemoglobin absorbing wavelengths.

“We are delighted to be one of the first sites in the country to offer this ‘star wars’ type of laser that can do everything from treating unsightly leg veins to diminishing new and old scars,” Dr. Stevens said. “California is a thought leader in lasers and aesthetics, and we are well known in the plastic surgery space as always having the newest and most progressive treatment modalities. The Excel V doesn’t disappoint. It’s the first to offer excellent photo rejuvenation capabilities as well as the ability to treat a wide variety of facial vascular indications and even leg veins for our patients looking for skin care in Los Angeles.”

He added that because of its advanced design which includes cooling before, during and after the laser pulse, the Excel V provides physicians with excellent control and safety. From fine, broken capillaries to diffuse redness and vascular birthmarks, this laser can be finely tuned to target exactly what needs treatment and gets results while the patient watches. No numbing medicine is needed.

“Not only can the Excel V treat everything from erythema (facial redness) and small red vessels but it can also correct large, blue leg veins and those around the eyes,” Dr. Stevens notes. “The laser can also improve skin tone and texture by targeting microvascularity, and as a plus, it stimulates collagen formation.”

As a Santa Monica plastic surgeon, Dr. Stevens serves as the medical director of Marina Plastic Surgery in Marina Del Rey, CA. He is a Board Certified Diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery and a Fellow of The American College of Surgeons and The International College of Surgeons. Dr. Stevens is the director of the USC Aesthetic Surgery Fellowship and Aesthetic Surgery Division, on the editorial board of The Aesthetic Surgery Journal and on the board of directors of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. An international traveling professor, Dr. Stevens was recognized by his peers as one of America’s Best Physicians in “The Guide to Top Doctors.” He is past chairman of the California Medical Association Advisory Panel on Plastic Surgery. He has received the Special Congressional Certificate of Recognition and the Distinguished Service Citation from the Medical Board of California.
