Dual Yellow Laser was specially designed to introduce the laser light into the skin with minimal loss and damage. It does not present an excess of energy that can potentially damage the skin surrounding the problem area. Instead, it offers the optimal wavelength for peak absorption for both vascular and pigment reduction while respecting the surrounding skin. With the Dual Yellow Laser, you get high penetration and accuracy with less heat, less damage and less discomfort during treatment.
It is recommended for treatment of the following:
How long will a Dual Yellow laser treatment take?
A Dual Yellow laser treatment will take approximately 30 minutes. Total appointment time will vary.

When can I see results with the Dual Yellow laser treatment?
Mostly the results are immediate, after the treatment, you will notice the disappearance of vascular lesions. However, some other lesions may take a week or so to disappear. In some cases, the pigmented mark may reappear. This usually happens if the treated area is exposed to sunlight after treatment. Therefore, sun protection is essential to ensure longevity of results and to prevent further damage when undertaking a course of Dual Yellow laser treatment.
How long can results last?
Results can last for months depending on age, skin condition and how the patient protects the skin. Therefore, the number of treatments is tailored to your concerns and skin care desires.
What is the recovery period following a treatment?
Immediately after treatment, you will observe a certain degree of redness and swelling on the treated area but you may proceed with your daily activities immediately after treatment.
