Pro Yellow Laser

If you have been dealing with skin aging, pigmentation, visible red vessels, and other skin issues, then you might be interested to read more about pro yellow laser in solving skin issues.


Pro Yellow is a new laser approach that was specifically designed to help with anti-aging, skin discoloration, sunspots, sun damage, rosacea, red acne scarring, almost all vascular skin conditions, and more. Pro Yellow laser has only been around for 8 years, and the results it has achieved have been remarkable during that time.

This technique is mainly used for treating superficial vascular skin diseases. The reason the Pro Yellow laser can target these conditions so well is that it is able to pierce deeper into the skin tissues. This type of laser works so well because of the amplified specificity, which enables the laser to penetrate deeper into the skin and target all the areas that need help.

The specificity of the laser allows for less power to be used. It enables the procedure to be beneficial to a much wider variety of skin types, including dark skins that were previously unable to be treated with laser. Not only that, but it is also a pretty comfortable procedure, as the strength of the laser does not need to be as high, requiring much shorter healing times, resulting in less redness and side effects after the procedure.

The Pro Yellow laser’s wavelength is specifically set to 577 nanometers. This wavelength has been scientifically and clinically proven to be the best-suited frequency for absorption by blood vessels and for addressing visible lesions at deeper layers of the skin. It is the color itself at the set wavelength of 577 nanometers that enables this specificity.

Clinical Uses for Pro Yellow Laser

Pro yellow laser is used to treat various skin conditions; these include:

  1. Rosacea: The pro yellow laser targets the underlying dilated blood vessels that cause the redness in rosacea. The yellow light shrinks the vessel, which results in a reduction in redness and flushing, reduction of acne-like bumps, and more even-toned and symmetrical skin.
  2. Port-wine stains: These stubborn congenital vascular lesions need multiple sessions with great results and can be started as soon as possible after birth.
  3. Cherry angioma: Pro Yellow laser can reduce cherry angioma’s red marks by reducing the blood vessels in these areas.
  4. Superficial varicose veins: Pro yellow laser closes and shrinks the varicose vein and causes scar tissue within the vessel. This seals off the vein, which allows blood then to flow through other nearby veins instead. The session for this condition is advised to be done after treating deep varicose veins to maintain the results.
  5. Melasma: Thanks to the lower level of melanin absorption, the QuadroStar pro yellow 577 nm wavelength can effectively treat melasma without any mentionable side effects.
  6. Red, post-acne scars: Red acne scars take many months to years to fade away. However, with the pro yellow laser, immediate results can be seen.
  7. Poikiloderma of Civatte: Damaged skin due to sun damage can improve significantly with pro yellow laser.
  8. Skin rejuvenation: Pro Yellow laser’s energy is absorbed into the dermis layer to treat and improve the skin’s support structure. Skin will look brighter and feel tighter with as little as one treatment.
  9. Pyogenic granuloma: The pro yellow laser helps treat pyogenic granuloma by focusing the laser on the affected area to shrink the pyogenic granuloma.
  10. Spider naevus: This skin condition can appear on the upper part of the body especially due to pregnancy and liver diseases and it can be treated with pro yellow laser.

The Quadrostar Pro Yellow Laser has Two Different Hand Pieces

The device at our clinic contains two different handpieces, each for a specific category of skin conditions. These handpieces are:

  • The pointed pen for treating small lesions.
  • Scanner handpiece for proper field treatment.
  • Combining the usage of both handpieces is usually done.

What Happens During the Session?

If you are curious about how the pro yellow laser procedure might go, here is all you need to know about it:

  1. First, the dermatologist will clean your face.
  2. Most of the time, the doctor does not use anesthesia as the discomfort is minimal.
  3. Then, both the patient and doctor wear protective goggles.
  4. After that, the doctor starts the session by using the proper handpiece and proper settings that will be adjusted according to the skin condition the doctor is treating and depending on the response of your situation.
  5. Usually, patients notice direct effects right after the session.

Is There Downtime After the Procedure?

What distinguishes this device from other laser devices is the short to no downtime compared to other vascular lasers like PDL laser or KTP. Those two are well known to leave purpura (blue spots) at the site of the treatment, which can take up to 10 days to disappear.

However, patients should expect slight darkening of pigmented lesions that will become much lighter during the following days. Occasionally, minimal redness and swelling might occur; nevertheless, that will not affect the patient’s daily activities.

How Many Sessions Does the Patient Need?

This depends entirely on the skin condition. For example, for rosacea, we might need two to three sessions followed by annual sessions to maintain the result. As for port-wine stains patients, we might need a lot of sessions with an interval of 3 to 4 weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
