About:

Lumenis® M22™ provides an Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment—also known as a Photofacial treatment—designed to gently and effectively treat a wide range of skin conditions, including: Skin discoloration and blemishes (sun/age spots and freckles) broken capillaries, acnes, and visible signs of aging.

Benefits:

A fast, yet gentle treatment that visibly improves:

  •       Pigmentation

  •       Age/sun spots

  •       Acnes

  •       Broken capillaries and

  •       Overall skin appearance by stimulating collagen and elastic fiber production.

How does it work?

Lumenis M22™ IPL with Optimal Pulse Technology (OPT™) enables your clinician to customize the treatment according to your skin type and desired results, with maximum safety. Light pulses penetrate the tissue and create heat, targeting the skin imperfection in a controlled manner. The body’s natural process then removes the treated tissue, while collagen and elastic fiber stimulation occurs, resulting in a visible improvement in skin tone and overall appearance. It is a complete solution to skin rejuvenation tailored to address the early signs of aging, pigmentation, age/sun spots, texture and overall skin appearance.

HOW DOES IT FEEL?

 

A cold gel is applied to the area to be treated. The cooling sapphire tip of the IPL handpiece is gently applied to your skin and pulses of light are applied. You may feel a slight sting, like the snapping of a small rubber band.

WHAT TO EXPECT? 

Immediately after your treatment the skin will feel like a mild to moderate sunburn for a few hours. To ease redness, apply over-the-counter Hydrocortisone 1% cream which works like magic. Use of cold compresses      or cold (not frozen) gel packs helps alleviate the heat sensation.

Some skin concerns such as shallow pigmentation and age/sun spots can be cleared with as few as 2-3 treatments. Typically 2-6 sessions with 3-4 weeks in between are needed to achieve optimal results for most skin concerns. However, you may continue to see improvements for up to six months following the treatment. The majority of patients are able to resume their daily activities within a day after treatment, which is why this is often referred to as a “lunch time” solution.
