What is M22 Lumenis?
The M22 Lumenis is a state of the art, multi-functional device, with applications to treat over 30 skin conditions including general signs of aging, birthmarks, acne scars, rosacea, and stretch marks. The wide range of functions within the device allow for the physician to tailor specifically to each patient’s needs depending on skin texture, color, and quality, in order to achieve optimal results.
How does M22 Lumenis work?
The M22 Lumenis is comprised of two different functioning systems: the IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) laser, and the ResurFx laser.
What’s the Difference Between IPL and the ResurFX?
The IPL uses Optimal Pulse Technology to administer varying wavelengths of light into the skin, which generate heat in order to treat pigmentation and vascular imperfections of the skin. The ResurFx uses fractional rejuvenation technology that stimulates deep collagen regeneration in order to improve skin texture, and quality, reducing the signs of aging.
Am I a candidate for the M22 Lumenis?
Dr. Day will meet with you in the office to evaluate your areas of concern and desired results. She will then determine if the IPL or ResurFX is the best treatment option for you.
What should I know before my treatment?
The M22 Lumenis requires you to have no active tan during the course of your treatments. As a precaution, and for optimal healing, Dr. Day may suggest pre medications prior to the treatment.
What should I expect during and after my treatment?
Depending on which treatment is being administered, topical numbing or cooling gel may be applied, in order to maximize patient comfort. Immediately following the treatment, redness and swelling may occur. Swelling will subside in a few hours but the redness may last for a few days. Direct sun exposure should be avoided immediately following the treatment.
How many treatments do I need?
Typically, 3-6 sessions are required to see visible improvement. Depending on the treatment, as few as 1-2 sessions may be required, though the total number of treatments can vary depending on individual patient needs. Additional treatments are scheduled at 4-6 week intervals. Final results are expected to be seen 4-6 weeks after your final treatment.
