ABOUT THE TREATMENT

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 dual wavelengths (578nm and 511nm) 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.

AFTER THE TREATMENT
