Dual Yellow Laser is very safe as it is non-invasive and does not wound your skin surface. Your skin will be brightened right after treatment and only some patients with sensitive skin will experience mild redness or swelling. Most of these will resolve within a few hours of treatment.
Improvements to your skin tone and texture will be gradual and become more visible after each treatment. Expect clear and healthy-looking skin. For best results depending on your skin condition, 3-4 treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart are recommended.

Following laser treatment, it is important to adhere to strict skin care and routine sunblock. Our patients are routinely recommended to consume sublingual glutathione (an anti-oxidant) to continue to inhibit melanin production.
