What is it?
Dual Yellow Laser 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.
How does it work?
The yellow light from this gentle laser destroys acne bacteria thereby eradicating active acne, at the same time promoting collagen growth, reducing redness and improving sensitive skin. Improvements are gradual and produce clearer and more even-toned surface and and an overall youthful appearance.

What other treatments do you recommend for acne?
Chemical peels are a simple and effective way to achieve cleaner and clearer-looking skin. Most individuals have minimal recovery time and are able to continue their usual activities after the chemical peel. Chemical peels can be done every 3-4 months on its own, or together with the Dual Yellow Laser treatments for more significant results.
Pearl laser, a laser peel that removes a layer of old damaged skin to reveal smooth, even-toned skin, is an effective option to stabilize those with sensitive skin that is dry on the surface, and oily & congested underneath. This treatment has a pore-stabilizing effect on acne-prone skin that is sensitive. There is a 5 day recovery time during which the skin looks mildly sunburnt. Most individuals need only 1treatment for visibly significant results.
How else can I care for my skin after treatment?
Having a good skincare regime is necessary for maintaining healthy clear skin. IYAC offers a comprehensive range of skincare products and cosmetics suitable for acne-prone skin. A salicylic acid-based cleanser to reduce surface dead skin, and a good moisturizer is a must for pimples to heal and marks to fade off quickly.
Choose mineral makeup like Jane Iredale's mineral makeup which is lightweight with coverage for red marks, does not clog pores and is good for your skin.
A healthy digestive system is key for well-being. Most acne-prone individuals benefit from minimizing sugar, dairy and wheat in their daily diet, and taking a probiotic supplement to promote great skin from within.
