Pro Yellow 577nm
Treatments from $180
What is Pro Yellow Laser effective for?
- Vascular Lesions (Red spots) – rosacea, post-acne redness (post-inflammatory erythema), telangietasias
- Pigmented Lesions (Brown spots) – melasma, lentigines
- Skin Rejuvenation
How Pro Yellow Works?
The yellow wavelength (577nm) provides the best absorption when treating blood vessels.
Compared to the standard green wavelength (532nm), the yellow wavelength is able to produce 40% higher absorption in blood. This translates to less required power during treatment, which in turn provides the following advantages:
- Greater comfort during the procedure
- A shorter healing period, less downtime and swelling
- Reduced risk of side effects such as blisters, burns or pigmentation change
- Ability to safely treat darker skin types, which is not typical for most lasers
- Ability to safety treat sensitive skin types such as those with rosacea or eczema
Some traditional lasers that have been used to destroy the blood vessels or improve redness such as in rosacea or in healing scars, commonly resulted in bruises that would last for weeks after a treatment.
The ProYellow laser coagulates the blood within a vessel thus causing it to collapse with minimal bruising and blistering. As such, patients can return to their daily activities immediately after treatment.
The ProYellow laser utilizes a unique wavelength that treats uneven skin tones, brown spots and redness caused by aging and sun damage.
The Pro Yellow laser not only treats the visible spots on the face, but also the underlying vessels. This helps to ensure long-lasting, quick, and safe results.
Data from recent research suggests blood vessels are the primary cause behind persistent brown lesions such as sun spots and melasma. It is safe in darker skin types, where traditional lasers are limited to only treating lighter skin tones.
The Pro Yellow Difference
The majority of visible unwanted skin spots, discoloration or redness/blood vessels, are rooted in a deeper vascular network of feeders or reticular veins that extend beyond the treatable depth of traditional green (532nm) lasers. Not addressing these areas can result in recurrence and the inability to effectively treat deeper pigmented and vascular issues.
The ProYellow 577nm laser penetrates deeper than standard green lasers, simultaneously addressing both visible lesions and underlying vessels. This also allows for safe treatment of a wider variety of indications for both light and dark skin types.
Frequently Asked Questions
How many treatments are required?
For vascular or pigmented lesions significant results can be seen in 1-2 treatments. Outcomes depend on proper diagnosis of your skin condition and chosen treatment parameters or laser settings.
Is the treatment painful?
The Pro Yellow laser does not require as much energy as other lasers. In turn, treatments are more comfortable. Topical anesthetic can be used prior to treatment to make the laser procedure very comfortable.
How long is a treatment?
A vascular or pigmented lesion treatment typically lasts between 10-40 minutes. Skin rejuvenation treatments typically last 15 minutes.
When will I see results?
The Pro Yellow can provide an immediate effect on vascular lesions. Visible results with pigmented lesions are typically seen over 5-10. As well, continued improvements can be seen over a 30-day period or longer.
