What is Dual Yellow Laser?
Dual Yellow Laser is a US-FDA-approved multi-wavelength laser treatment – the green and yellow light is effective for targeting skin concerns such as skin pigmentation particularly melasma, acne, and redness, as well as other vascular lesions such as seborrheic keratosis.
How does Dual Yellow Laser work?
Dual Yellow Laser uses copper bromide-based laser technology that offers two different wavelengths, 511nm and 578nm. These wavelengths correspond well with the absorption peaks for vascular (haemoglobin) and pigmentation (melanin) chromophores. The laser can reach the deep dermis and is absorbed by the pigment without harming surrounding tissue.
The yellow light gently destroys bacteria that cause acne, condenses overactive sebaceous glands, and in turn reduces sebum production to eradicate acne. It also stimulates collagen production in the skin to help even out scars.
Simultaneously during the treatment, the green light targets spots and pigmentation such as melasma, rosacea, brown spots, dark eye circles and freckles caused by ageing or photodamage. The energy is then absorbed by the underlying blood vessels to break down skin pigments and reduce melanin production – all without damaging the surrounding tissues.
What can Dual Yellow Laser treat?
It combats a wide range of skin pigmentation concerns like melasma, dark spots, brown spots, and pigmentations due to ageing or sun damage.
Acne, Acne Scars and Stretch Marks treatment
Yellow light destroys acne-causing bacteria and regulates sebaceous gland activities to reduce the production of sebum and prevent scarring. It is also suitable for use to eradicate stretch marks.
Skin Tags, Warts, Moles treatment
It effectively removes skin tags and moles. Unlike traditional resurfacing lasers, Dual Yellow Laser removes skin growths easily without causing any bleeding or any damage to the surrounding skin.
Skin Brightening and Rejuvenation treatment
As the laser increases the production of collagen, it helps to treat fine lines and wrinkles and brings an overall brightening and rejuvenating effect. In just one treatment, it provides skin brightness, longer-lasting brightening, and greater results.
Why choose Dual Yellow Laser?
It is fast-working – some pigmentation problems can be treated in a single session. Skin rejuvenation and brightening, rosacea or face redness, and acne treatment can also be achieved within a few sessions! It is suitable for most skin types and body areas including the face, neck, chest, back, hands, arms and legs.
Unlike most other laser treatments where micro-wounds are created on the skin surface, Dual Yellow Laser is a gentle laser treatment that does not break the skin surface. This makes the treatment very comfortable as heat is scattered and dispersed at the skin surface, leading to a vast reduction in discomfort.
Is there any downtime & side effects?
Patients can resume normal activities. They may experience only slight redness and mild swelling on the treated area which will subside in a few hours.
