treatments: M22 photofacials/IPL

The M22 has proven to be extremely effective in treating a vast array of skin conditions, including:
• Lentigines (Liver Spots): These are benign lesions on the skin that typically appear with age. These liver spots can be addressed with this technology, restoring a more youthful look to hands, face, or other area of the body.
• Skin Rejuvenation: As skin ages, it loses its natural, youthful elasticity. This system can rejuvenate areas of the body with sagging, aging skin, restoring it to a smoother, fresher appearance.
• Rosacea: A common skin condition, that causes chronic redness & flushing, rosacea can be addressed and resolved with the M22, with beautiful results.
• Freckles/Sun or Age Spots: If you are unhappy with the abundance of freckles /sun spots  on your body, the M22 is a highly effective tool to leave you with clean, clearer, even-toned skin.
• Dyschromia: When the skin has areas of discoloration, either over- or under-pigmentation, it is called dyschromia. These areas of skin can be resolved through treatment with this system, with outstanding outcomes.
• Keratosis: If you have small, hard bumps under the skin, officially called "keratosis," this condition can be resolved with this advanced system.
• Spider Veins (Facial Telangiectasia): Spider veins can appear on areas of the face or other part of the body. The M22 can be employed to resolve these unsightly visible vein clusters. It provides pinpoint accuracy that won’t disturb healthy tissue.
• Active Acne or Acne Scars: This advanced treatment is extremely effective in treating active acne, or resolving acne scars from earlier breakouts.
• Warts: A wart can be an unpleasant and unattractive skin condition, easily treated with the M22.

This special treatment works with your skin to remove imperfections and stimulate collagen and elastic fiber production over a sequence of treatments. Some conditions such as shallow pigmentation and age/sun spots can be cleared with as few as 2-4 treatments! Typically 4-6 sessions are needed to achieve maximum results for deeper skin concerns. Treatments are administered at 3-4 week intervals.

Our Lumenis M22 does this by eliminating freckles, redness, and brown pigmentation. It reduces pore size and fine lines all with one device. Through a process called photorejuvenation, IPL is used to help restore the skin's youthful appearance and improves the appearance of photoaged skin. IPL gives the skin a smoother look and feel and a more even tone. As a sub-epidermal procedure, IPL skin treatments produce few side effects and requires little to no alteration in the patient's normal routine. The process is ideal for patients with active lifestyles because the procedure requires minimal to no downtime and has a low risk of side effects.

The gentle, non-ablative treatments use broad spectrum light to treat almost every part of the body including the full face, chest, neck and hands--virtually anywhere that sun damage shows.

IPL works by delivering a broad spectrum of light which is transmitted through a small, smooth, transparent handpiece which is gently placed over the skin. Cut-off filters in the hand piece change the wavelength range allowing it to be optimized for different applications and skin types. The light penetrates the tissue and is absorbed by either the blood, when treating vascular lesions, or the melanin when treating pigmented lesions damaging them. The body's natural processes then remove the injured tissue giving the skin a more even and youthful appearance.
