Our schedules keep us busy and put a lot of stress on our bodies, which can become visible as common signs of aging like dark spots, uneven skin tone, rough skin texture, wrinkles, and dark circles under the eyes. But that hard work should be reflected in your paychecks, not on your face! That’s why so many patients choose to turn to non-surgical skin rejuvenation that doesn’t require the downtime of surgery but can still provide lasting results. In 2012, 432,496 laser skin resurfacing procedures were performed—a marked increase from years before—and the trend has only continued.
Today, there is a variety of laser skin procedures on the market, and it’s important to schedule a consultation with a trusted plastic surgeon to find the one that’s right for you. At Perfection Plastic Surgery and Skin Care, we frequently recommend treatments with the Lumenis M22 Laser, which offers a variety of different procedures from one powerful module.
What can the Lumenis M22 Laser do for your skin?
The Lumenis M22 Laser is not a single treatment method. There are several technologies integrated into one system to provide the specific results you’re after, depending on the issues you’d like to correct. The Lumenis system can treat scars, broken capillaries, and pigmentation issues, and some treatments even stimulate collagen production to return a smoother, tighter texture to your face and neck.
IPL Photorejuvenation treatment – M22 IPL Photorejuvenation is a common recommendation as an overall anti-aging treatment. It can target pigmentation, broken capillaries, age spots, and other issues that impact the overall appearance of the skin. It also stimulates collagen production, making it a two-in-one treatment to smooth fine lines and wrinkles and create a more even skin texture that looks and feel younger—talk about a win-win! Using Optimal Pulse Technology, IPL Photorejuvenation gently yet effectively targets skin imperfections to make a lunchtime treatment that has lasting results.
ResurFX treatment – ResurFX is a non-ablative fractional laser featuring a proprietary CoolScan scanner to help your doctor customize your treatment for optimal results. Unlike other fractional laser treatments, it only requires a single pass, which means it is easier on the skin and takes less time to complete. Because ResurFX is a skin resurfacing treatment, it can provide dramatic results with minimal healing time.
Why We Love It
We are excited to deliver Lumenis M22 Laser technology to our patients, because it provides so many treatment options in one reliable system that is customizable to each patient’s needs. It is a great option for lunchtime rejuvenation treatments that can have a dramatic impact without disrupting your schedule, so you can go back to your regular routine with better-looking skin!

Questions and Answers
How long does it take to see results?
It will depend on which treatment you have, but you will see nearly immediate changes in your skin with gradually improving results in collagen-stimulating IPL therapies.
There may be some redness and swelling following your treatment, but the treatment itself should be comfortable. You may feel some warming sensations or a feeling of flushness in the skin, but many patients report a smooth, painless experience.
Is laser resurfacing right for my skin?
Only your doctor or aesthetician can help guide you toward the right treatments for your skin, but if you are unhappy with the texture or pigment of your skin or you have visible capillaries and dark spots on the face and neck, laser resurfacing may be a good option.
