In brief: Depends

The term "double layer herniated disk" is not commonly used.
Terms commonly used are contained, extruded, and sequestered. In cases with a disc recurrence after surgery, the MRI may show the new herniation encased in post-operative scar (a two layer effect). The treatment for each of these pathologies may vary depending on symptoms and the anatomy.
