Laser Skin Rejuvenation

ProYellow

The main differences between the ProYellow and other skin rejuvenation lasers has to do with wavelength and the available pulse duration adjustments of each desired wavelength. In other words, different laser wavelengths (colors of light) target different skin issues, providing the physician can match the proper wavelength with the proper pulse durations to achieve the desired clinical endpoint without affecting the surrounding tissue.

Traditionally, the most commonly used laser wavelength for the treatment of pigmented lesions (such as sun spots & age spots) and vascular lesions (or unsightly veins) has been the 532nm laser, or green laser light.

Green lasers provide very good results in skin types I to III, but 532nm is no longer the ideal wavelength (or color) for targeting vascular lesions for skin types I-IV.

ProYellow is good for:

  • Sun Damage & Age Spots

    The ProYellow laser offers two options for treating unsightly pigmented lesions. Options include individual spot treatment for individual lesions, or fractional treatments for larger areas such as full face, chest and neck. The ProYellow laser can be used to treat both light & dark skin types and for a wide variety of problems, including:

    • • melasma
    • • age spots
    • • sun damage
    • • solar lentigines
    • • café au lait spots
    • • moles
    • • birthmarks
    • • freckles
    • • skin tags

  • Skin Rejuvenation

    The ProYellow laser is a unique wavelength for skin rejuvenation that treats uneven skin tones, brown spots and redness caused by fine vessels.

    Pulses of laser light are absorbed into the dermis to treat the aging support structure. Then the body’s natural healing process rebuilds skin tissue with fresh, new collagen and elastin — the crucial building blocks of smooth, youthful skin.

    The ProYellow laser can be used to treat both light & dark skin types and for a wide variety of problems, ranging from sun damaged skin to aged skin.

  • Unsightly Veins

    Traditional pulsed-dye lasers are used to destroy unsightly veins or blood vessels, which often result in bruising that can last for weeks after a treatment. Green lasers (532nm) are commonly used to collapse vessels without bruising, but are limited to lighter skin types. Alternatively, the ProYellow is able to eliminate unsightly vessels without bruising on a wider range of skin types and with patients returning to their daily activities immediately after treatment. The ProYellow laser can be used to treat both light & dark skin types and for a wide variety of problems, including:

    • • cherry angioma
    • • couperosis
    • • hemangioma
    • • poikiloderma of civatte
    • • port wine stains
    • • erythma post-acne
    • • rosacea
    • • spider nevus
    • • spider angioma
    • • telangiectasia
    • • venous lake

The ProYellow Advantage:

  • Light & Dark Skin Types

    The ProYellow laser is able to safely treat unsightly veins for both light and darker skin types, with minimal risk of side effects.

  • Immediate Results & Reduced Risk of Bruising

    The ProYellow can provide significant results in a single session, with little to no risk of bruising.

  • Quick & Comfortable

    Treatment sessions are fast and do not require as much energy as other lasers. In turn, treatments are more comfortable.

  • No Downtime

    Patients can immediately return to the daily activities after treatment.

How does ProYellow Work?

01

The ideal wavelength is 577nm, or yellow light and until the North American debut in 2014, a pure yellow laser of sufficient power for skin rejuvenation was not available. That is until the debut of the QuadroStar ProYellow laser, the industry’s first 577nm pure yellow laser for skin rejuvenation.

The ProYellow 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 a number of significant advantages, including:

  • Minimal risk of side effects, such as burns or pigmentation change
  • Ability to treat vascular lesions at much lower power than 532nm lasers
  • Ability to provide fractional laser scanning for rejuvenation on skin types I to V
  • Ability to safely treat vascular lesions on skin types I to IV
  • Ability to simultaneously treat both the VEGF and mid to epidermal melasma
  • Ability to safely treat pigmented lesions up to skin type V
02

The majority of visible unwanted skin spots, discoloration or redness (blood vessels), are rooted in a deeper vascular network of veins that 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 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.

Why is the ProYellow ideal for age spots & sun damage?

The ProYellow laser is an effective wavelength for treating pigmented lesions, as it has the ability to target both the pigment and underlying vessels for long-lasting results.

Am I a candidate?

The ProYellow treatment can be performed on both light & dark skin types. Please contact a provider to find out if you are a good candidate.

How long does it take?

A treatment typically lasts between 10-40 minutes.

Will it hurt?

The ProYellow laser does not require as much energy as other lasers. In turn, treatments are much more comfortable.

How many treatments are required?

Results can be seen in as few as 1-2 treatments, depending on the condition and desired result. Outcomes depend on proper diagnosis of your skin condition and chosen treatment parameters or laser settings.

When will I see results?

Results are typically seen within 5-7 days, with optimal results being seen over 30-days.
