QUADROSTAR PRO YELLOW LASER
The German-engineered QuadroStar PRO Yellow Laser is a version of the commonly used Dual Yellow/Combination laser.
Due to its specific wavelength of 577nm, the Pro Yellow Laser is ideal vascular treatments such as vascular lesion removal and vascular laser for rosacea as well as epidermal pigmentation treatments such as depigmentation of skin. It has been used to target both pigmentation and underlying vessels for good results.
The main difference between the PRO Yellow Laser and other skin rejuvenation lasers is its wavelength. Compared to the Dual Yellow/Combination laser, the PRO Yellow Laser has a specific wavelength of just 577nm, instead of a mixture of 532nm (green) and 577nm (pure yellow light). This specific wavelength of 577 nm means that the Pro Yellow Laser is known as the laser treatment for acne and can also be used to safely treat various conditions such as pigmentation, rosacea, uneven skin tone etc, as the wavelength of 532nm is believed to leave Asian skin more susceptible to hyperpigmentation.
After a session, the patient’s facial skin might be slightly sensitive and appear a little pink. However, there is no real downtime and the patient can resume daily activities immediately after.
In general, for most cases of rosacea and melasma, you will require anywhere between 4-6 treatments with around 3 weeks rest period between each treatment session for the condition to fully clear up.
Before proceeding with the PRO Yellow Laser skin rejuvenation treatment, patients should avoid excessive sun exposure for a week. The same goes after undergoing the said laser treatment. Patients should also avoid exfoliating and scrubbing for a week as the skin gets sensitive and vulnerable after each procedure.
After each treatment session of PRO Yellow Laser skin rejuvenation treatment, visible results such as healthier-looking and glowing skin will start to appear. It is highly recommended to undergo six sessions of PRO Yellow Laser treatment with three weeks interval to achieve ideal results. After completion of the required sessions, patients can request maintenance treatments for continuous and longer-lasting results.
QUADROSTAR PRO YELLOW LASER
The PRO Yellow Laser not only treats the visible spots on the face, but also the underlying vessels. This helps to ensure long-lasting, quick, and safe results. Data from recent research suggests blood vessels are the primary cause behind persistent brown lesions such as sun spots and melasma. It is safe in darker skin types, where traditional lasers are limited to only treating lighter skin tones. It is especially suitable to treat:
Common places for melasma to occur include: Nose, Cheeks, Forehead and areas around the upper lip. More than 90% of melasma cases occur in women above the age of 30. Women that live near the equator where UV exposure is higher are at a greater risk of developing melasma. Hormonal and genetic factors play a role in many cases. At times, other lasers such as Pico Laser and the Fotona Laser can be used in combination in a multi-prong approach to treating difficult melasma cases.
Vascular (Blood Vessels) Conditions
Because of the dilation of the skin’s blood vessels, redness of the face can occur. There are various vascular skin conditions and such include rosacea (redness), Telangiectasia, cherry angiomas, and facial veins. With PRO Yellow Lasers, their yellow light energy wavelength thickens and coagulates the blood vessels which will then lead it to collapse. As this happens, minimal bruising may occur. This process has the ability to fade away rosacea and other vascular lesions.
PRO Yellow Laser fights and kills the acne bacteria that is causing acne breakouts. As this happens, the procedure helps to reduce inflammation which is also causing visible redness. Proyellow Laser is also an effective procedure to reduce the size of sebaceous glands that exerts sebum or oil, which is also the cause of acne breakouts.
PRO Yellow Lasers has the ability to boost collagen growth and improve the skin’s appearance as the yellow light laser energy wavelength absorbed into the skin improves the skin’s support structure. After a few sessions of PRO Yellow, patients may expect rejuvenated and glowing skin condition.
With the inclusion of preparation time, each treatment session will last around 45 minutes. This treatment is generally well tolerated and is quite mild. Often, patients don’t even need the application of a topical numbing cream. The laser has been said to give a mild prickling sensation. Patients with a lower pain tolerance can be given a topical anesthetic cream.
CARBON LASER PEEL
The Carbon Laser Peel is a revolutionary and safe laser treatment that has minimal-to-zero downtime. It is highly beneficial for people with oily skin, blackheads, enlarged pores, dull skin and acne on the face. It is also an excellent way to exfoliate and refresh your skin, providing an instant refreshed appearance and leaving skin feeling softer, smoother and firmer.
Carbon peels should be supplemented by a good skin-care routine and daily use of a good quality sunscreen. Noticeable results can be experienced after a single treatment, but for maximum long-term results our clinic recommends regular treatments.
The benefits of the treatment include:
Cleansing: Carbon has the ability to absorb oil and contaminants from deep within the pores. When the laser is passed over the treatment area it targets and destroys the carbon particles, taking along any absorbed material with it.
Exfoliating: As the carbon is targeted by the laser, it blasts away dead skin cells, blackheads and effectively exfoliates the skin. The result is softer, radiant skin with reduced pore size and a more even skin tone.
Rejuvenating: Carbon peels also target the deep layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production, which in turn produces firmer skin, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and leaves skin feeling tighter and glowing.
The Q-switched laser emits a beam at a specific wavelength of 1064 nm and works by fractional photothermolysis.
At 1064 nm, the dermis, which lies 1-2 mm below the skin surface, is specifically targeted which can promote new collagen formation. The superficial skin layer, the epidermis, is spared and hence, the Q-switched laser is non-ablative.
Rather than just a single laser beam, the Q-switched laser is broken up into many smaller beams (i.e. fractional), which then leaves tiny areas of healthy skin that can help speed up recovery of the area being treated. Q-switch also refers to the technique of delivering the laser in very short pulses.
Common skin conditions such as facial pigmentation, wrinkles, acne scars, birthmarks and spider veins can thus be treated. Hair and tattoo removal can also be achieved with the Q-switched laser.
Essentially, the laser delivers heat directly to damaged cells, blood vessels and pigments and all skin types can be safely treated.
Are skin imperfections bothering you, giving away your age, or making you look older than your actual age? At Miiren Aesthetics Clinic, we can help you say goodbye to skin imperfections.
Dual Yellow Laser is an FDA-approved multi-wavelength laser treatment – the green and yellow light is effective for targeting skin concerns such as skin pigmentation particularly melasma, and acnes and redness, as well as other vascular lesions such as seborrheic keratosis. It is a copper bromide laser that helps to reduce acne, melasma, redness and sensitivity. With just 3-6 treatments at 2-3 week intervals, this laser treatment aims for maximum benefits with minimal discomfort and side effects. Improvements are gradual as clearer and healthy-looking skin is more visible after each treatment. For best results, 6 treatments, spaced 3 weeks apart is recommended. Thereafter, maintenance treatments can be done once every 2 months or as require.
Moreover, Miiren uses Pro-Yellow Laser which is a more advanced and improved version of the commonly used Dual-Yellow laser. Using a special wavelength of 577nm, the Pro-Yellow Laser is able to effectively kill acne bacteria and shrink sebum-producing sebaceous glands. The yellow laser also promotes collagen growth and reduces small red blood vessels (facial capillaries). This has an overall tightening, firming and rejuvenating effect on skin.
This new technology allows for fast and effective treatment of benign pigmented lesions and all treatable tattoo colors. Achieving a more youthful appearance without the typical discomfort is now possible with the Dual-Yellow Lasers.
Dual-Yellow Laser is suited for all pigmentation types like Lentigo, Freckles, Melasma and Café Au Lait Spots. It uses proprietary technology to effectively convert the laser energy into gentle pressure waves.
These waves activate cell signaling and initiate an enhanced inflammatory healing response. This leads to increased collagen and elastin but without the thermal injury of other lasers. This ground-breaking technology is designed to harness the body’s natural healing processes to restore youthful skin.
ERBIUM FRACTIONAL LASER PRO
A fractional lasers promoting faster recovery and Ideal for treatment for issues such as acne scarring, sun damage, hyperpigmentation and wrinkles.
Traditionally, ablative lasers have yielded the best results for skin resurfacing but require a much longer recovery time as the surface skin cells (i.e. epidermis) are vaporised.
Fractional lasers are broken up into many smaller beams so that the treated area retains a portion of healthy skin that can promote faster recovery through the formation of new collagen. It affects just 15-20% of the surface in a pixelated manner with no down time and inflammation.
By combining the proven effectiveness of ablation with less down time afforded through the fractional method, the Pixel™ Pro can be used to treat acne scarring, sun damage, hyperpigmentation and wrinkles on the face, neck, chest, arms and hands.
