Pro Yellow Laser
What is it?
The Quadrostar Pro Yellow Laser is a German-engineered device that utilizes visible yellow light to specifically target redness-related skin issues and treat inflamed and vascular conditions.
It generates a laser beam with a specific 577 nm wavelength that is highly absorbed by both the oxyhaemoglobin (red blood cells) in blood vessels and by the melanin (pigments) in the skin. This results in breakdown of pigments for that instant skin brightening effect and at the same time, a reduction in blood supply to the skin cells that are responsible for producing these pigments.
Unique to the Pro Yellow Laser, a skin brightening and glowing radiance, also known as the “Glass Skin Effect”, instantly develops following the treatment as a result of gentle yet effective breakdown of dead skin cells on surface of the skin, revealing healthy and clear complexion beneath.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long will the effect last?
The effect of the treatment lasts for about 1 month.
What is the treatment interval?
Depending on the condition being treated for, the treatment intervals can range from every 2-4 weeks.
For active acne, closer treatment intervals at every 1-2 weekly are advised.
It is recommended that you speak with our doctor who can then advise you the ideal treatment interval based on your concerns.
How soon will I see the effect?
The effect of skin brightening and glowing radiance is often seen immediately following treatment. The reduction in redness and acne will gradually improve over the next 3-5 days. As for pigmentation, slight darkening will be observed before the pigment scabs and sloughs off the skin.
Depending on skin condition, multiple sessions done on a regular basis are usually required to achieve good results.
How many sessions are required?
We recommend at least 4 to 6 sessions for see a good overall improvement. More sessions may often be required for stubborn skin conditions.
It is recommended that you speak with our doctor who can then advise you more accurately on the number of treatment sessions you will need.
What to expect during treatment?
The treatment uses 2 handpieces which will produce different sensations.
The focus handpiece generates a comfortable warm sensation on the skin whereas the scanner handpiece comes with a cooling tip that aims to minimize the prickly sensation felt during the treatment.
The treatment usually lasts for about 20-25 minutes.
Is there any downtime?
There is generally no downtime for this treatment. For treatment of vascular conditions, mildly flushed skin will be expected but typically resolves within a few hours.
However, in cases where pigmentation is the primary target to treat, slight darkening of pigmentation will be encountered for the first 1-2 days which later form scabs that eventually slough off over the course of 5-7 days.
Are the results permanent?
Acne, redness and pigmentation that has been successfully treated do not usually return as a result of cessation of treatments.
However, maintenance of clear skin with regular laser treatments, sun avoidance, sunscreen as well as medical grade skin lightening products still form the mainstay preventive factors to avoid formation of new pigmentation or acne on the skin.
What is the post-treatment care?
- Continue skincare and makeup as per usual routine
- Avoid taking alcohol on the day of treatment
- Apply cold packs or soothing masks to areas of redness or swelling, if any
- Avoid excessive sun exposure for the next 1 to 2 weeks
- If scabbing occurs, avoid the use of exfoliating scrubs, retinol based or AHA/BHA products until fully healed
- For areas where scabs form, do not pick on them but allow them to naturally slough off
- Start a skin lightening medical grade skincare product to achieve the best results
