    This should be determined by the person offering the treatment.

    Details will vary from person to person depending on factors such as severity of the condition, skin colour, dryness/greasiness, location on the face and so on.

    spot size 10mm
    fluence 8,4J/cm2
    pulse duration 13 msec.
    I will let you know my effect.

    Default Excel v

    What are your post cutera excel v treatment impressions? I'm considering having it too in a few months. Just 532 wavelength though.
    Did you have 1094 too?

    Dear admin/moderator.
    Why don't you accept my reply for this thread? [mod - you cannot post links until a certain number of posts have been achieved].

    I think that laser parameters for Cutera Excel V are too low. I will show you some parameters to compare.
    Laser settings of Iridex Gemini; 10 mm, 30 msec, 6-9 J/cm.
    Cutera Excel V; 10 mm, 8-15 ms, 6-9 J/cm². Iridex Gemini even recommend 4-5mm spot size, more energy and even 40msec pulse duration.
    Check; http://mycutera.com/vip/marketing-an...mini-Rev-D.pdf page 8
    http://mycutera.com/getattachment/42...uide.aspx.aspx page 8
    Both lasers are KTP 532nm with cooling. I think that Cutera Excel V will be the best laser for rosacea with higher prameters such as Gemini laser.
