Dual Yellow Laser

Treat Pigmentation, Melasma, and Rosacea Effectively

Melasma is a type of pigmentation that causes skin discolouration. Although it can affect anyone, studies have shown that it is more commonly found in women, especially pregnant women and those who are consuming contraceptive pills or hormone replacement therapy drugs. They appear as dark, irregular hyper pigmented patches that are commonly found on areas frequently exposed to the sun such as forehead, cheeks, nose, and lips. It is thought to be overactive melanocytes stimulated by female sex hormones to produce more melanin pigments when the skin is exposed to the sun.

What is Dual Yellow Laser?

Dual Yellow Laser, a type of Copper Bromide Laser, obtained approval from FDA for the treatment of vascular and pigmented lesion.

It offers multi-wavelength capability to treat a wide range of skin issues such as vascular lesions, skin pigmentation including melasma, other skin lesions such as seborrheic keratosis, and acne. It is also very effective for overall skin rejuvenation treatment to brighten skin, treat fine wrinkles, and improve skin texture.

Specially designed to penetrate deep into the skin without harming surrounding tissue, Dual Yellow Laser is excellent for treating various skin abnormalities.

Why is Dual Yellow Laser particularly good for treating melasma?

Emitting unique wavelengths of 511nm and 578nm, Copper Bromide Laser corresponds well with absorption peaks for vascular and pigmented conditions. The unique wavelengths are capable of reaching the deep dermis and absorbed by the pigments without causing any collateral damage to surrounding skin. The green and yellow lights emitted by the Copper Bromide Laser are effective for treating and clearing melasma. It works by curbing the production of melanin at the source. In other words, it does not only treat melasma, it also reduces the production of melanin so as to lower the recurrent rate.

Dual Yellow Laser for skin redness and rosacea

As we age, fine blood vessels start to appear on the skin surface. This causes us to flush easily. Genetics and race are some other factors determining why some of us experience red, sensitive skin more than others. In particular, rosacea, a common skin condition, is a chronic, relapsing skin condition characterised by facial flushing and even pimple like lesions. This can be very disruptive to our daily lives. Yellow light at 578nm emitted from Copper Bromide Laser is designed specially to target the oxyhemoglobin present in our blood. As a result, it shrinks the capillaries to effectively reduce the appearance of red patches on the face. Skin conditions associated with excessive vasculature such as rosacea, sensitive skin, telangiectasia, cherry angiomas, Poikiloderma of Civatte are all effectively treated with Copper Bromide Laser.

What else can Dual Yellow Laser do?

SKIN WHITENING The yellow light helps to increase the production of collagen and also reduces pigmentation. It is also effective for treating scars and stretch marks, achieving an overall skin brightening effect.

SKIN GROWTH Skin conditions such skin tags, moles, raised pigment can be treated effectively and painlessly with the green and yellow lights. Unlike traditional resurfacing lasers, Dual Yellow Laser removes skin growths easily without causing any bleeding or any damage to the surrounding skin.

ACNE Yellow light can also destroy acne-causing bacteria and shrink the sebaceous glands to reduce the production of sebum.

Is the treatment painful?

Unlike most other laser treatments where micro-wounds are created on the skin surface, Copper Bromide Laser is a gentle laser treatment that does not break the skin surface. This makes the treatment very comfortable, even without any numbing cream. Furthermore, heat is scattered and dispersed at the skin surface, leading to a vast reduction in discomfort.

Does Dual Yellow Laser Treatment have any downtime?

The downtime is minimal as it is a non-invasive treatment that does not break the skin surface. In fact, you will notice that your skin becomes brighter after the treatment.

Are there any side effects or risks of the treatment?
