Everybody dreams about having clear, smooth skin but sometimes genetics, lifestyle, medications and diet can get in the way of that. For mild conditions, prescription and over-the-counter creams and medications can help, but for more serious cases, more and more people are turning to laser treatments to help clear their complexion.
One of the more popular treatments is the Yellow Laser, a state-of-the-art laser procedure for skin rejuvenation. It can treat even the most complicated skin conditions with minimal downtime and discomfort, and is also safe to use on all skin tones. Before we get into what conditions this laser technology can treat, let’s look into what it is and what to expect during a treatment session.
Leading the pack in laser innovation, the popularity of the Yellow Laser is a result of it’s precision, results and ability to treat multiple skin tones. Due to its ideal wavelength of 577 nm, the Yellow Laser provides the best absorption when treating blood vessels which helps improve the look of a variety of different skin conditions. This wavelength can absorb blood at 40% more effectiveness than its competitors which means it requires less power to achieve the same results, while also minimizing the risk of burns. The Yellow Laser is a safe treatment with a targeted laser that doesn’t damage or disrupt surrounding skin or tissue.
Most Yellow Laser treatments start with an exfoliation or cleanse to ensure that the face is prepped for treatment. Afterwards, the Yellow Laser is applied all through the face, destroying bacteria on the skin’s surface while simultaneously encouraging collagen production. The process also helps reduce the appearance of red blood vessels and shrinks the sebaceous gland which helps reduce the production of sebum, a major cause of chronic acne. Once the treatment is done, patients are free to go about their day as there’s no downtime.
During the procedure, patients tend to feel a prickly sensation resembling an elastic band snapping on the skin or tingling throughout the face. With that said, the treatment is still very tolerable even for those with a lower pain tolerance. For those who are concerned about the mild discomfort, a topical anesthetic can be applied for a more pleasant experience.
The Yellow Laser has the ability to treat multiple skin conditions, which is wh fdy the treatment itself has grown in popularity in the cosmetic dermatology world. This treatment is ideal for those struggling with acne, skin sensitivity, skin redness, vascular lesions, unwanted blood vessels and more.
When it comes to results, many patients report having a clearer, smoother and brighter complexion. But in order to achieve ultimate skin goals, it’s highly recommended that patients purchase treatment packages of 3-6, that are used in 2-week intervals. Since results improve with every treatment, depending on the condition of your skin, patients will likely need more than one in order to see the results they want.
