What is the M22 IPL Laser?
If you are seeking a broad and versatile treatment option for a wide variety of skin concerns, look no further than Laser & Mohs Dermatology of New York and the M22 IPL laser. M22 is relatively new to the cosmetic dermatology market and is extremely effective at treating an array of skin conditions.
The Lumenis M22 IPL laser combines state of the art IPL treatment with a safe and effective non-ablative, fractional laser with a YAG laser all in one system.
The IPL mode uses a continuous cooling system to keep patients comfortable during their treatment. This laser is proven effective at minimizing the appearance of uneven pigment, skin tone, unwanted hair and vascular lesions.
The ResurFX mode uses non-ablative laser to stimulate collagen below the skin’s surface and correct the appearance of uneven pigmentation, age spots, dark spots, wrinkles, acne scars and uneven texture. Learn more about ResurFX here.
The Nd:YAG mode uses pulses of energy to treat vascular lesions, spider veins and even wrinkles.
Unlike any other system on the market, the M22 IPL Laser offers the ability for patients to tailor their treatment to a variety of skin care needs with one visit and treatment system.
Am I a good candidate for M22 laser treatment?
Any patient that is healthy but would like to dramatically improve the appearance of their wrinkles, dark spots, spider veins, or uneven skin texture is a great candidate for M22 laser treatment. If you have a dermatological condition or other concern regarding your ability to receive M22 laser treatment, be sure to discuss this with your physician prior to treatment.
