Dual Yellow Laser is one of my favourite laser machine in my clinic. It become common in the market too.
It has 2 wavelength which is Yellow 578nm and Green 511nm.
It has multiple indications according to its manufacture, but among those indications which i found it help my patients more are the indications for sensitive skin, different kinds of pigmentation reduction and acne reduction treatment.
Specific wavelength of the lasers means it only work on specific target. So it reduce collateral damage to surrounding tissues and skin, less damage, less downtime and less discomfort.
The results are visible and effective if it is done by well trained and experienced doctors. The given protocols cannot applied on all patients but the operator (doctor) need to adjust the setting and power of the laser machine for every patient with different life style, skin type, pigmentation problem, skin condition and gender.

Acne Treatment with Dual Yellow laser
The yellow light from the Dual Yellow laser destroys the P Acne bacteria, and shrinks the sebaceous gland to reduce the production of sebum. The Dual Yellow laser is the only laser which uses photodynamic therapy to destroy bacteria, without damaging surrounding tissue. It does this by activating Proto Porphyrin 9 (PPIX) which exists in P Acne bacteria. PPIX is light sensitive at 578nm.
This treatment helps in reducing active acne and speeds up healing time of existing acne.
Rejuvenation with Dual Yellow Laser
The yellow light from the Dual Yellow laser helps to generate collagen, the essential protein for giving your skin elasticity.
This happens because yellow light affects the collagen in a way that promotes regrowth; it also reduces pigmentation. So your skin will appear lightened and more youthful. With the extravasation and reabsorption of the microvasculature in the epidermisand upper dermis, skin appears refreshed, and the texture is improved with the generation of new dermal collagen.
Pigmentation Treatment with Dual Yellow Laser
The green light from the Dual Yellow laser targets the melanin, which is the principle component in the lesion. Surrounding tissue remains undamaged. You will see immediate change and in some cases the lesion will darken slightly, which is perfectly normal.
The pigment will then gradually come away over the following week. This method causes no damages to surrounding tissue
