What is M22 Laser Treatment?
The Lumenis M22 laser is an FDA approved advanced laser platform that offers the unique ability to treat various dermatological problems by performing various photo rejuvenation treatments in a single session. Skin rejuvenation, acne and acne scarring reduction, correction of vascular issues as well as excess hair removal can all be performed using this single laser device.
What Is Photo Rejuvenation?
Skin rejuvenation procedures rely on the body’s remarkable natural ability to eradicate hyperpigmentation, age spots and wrinkles. The deep dermal layers of the skin are home to collagen proteins, elastin fibres and a whole host of different growth factors. They each play an important role in providing structure, support and nutrition to the outmost layer of skin, the epidermis.
Photo rejuvenating procedures specifically target these areas using heat and light energy to stimulate deep tissue repair, remodelling and regeneration of the skin. This adds volume and tightness to the skin, breaks down veins and capillaries and reduces cells with an overproduction of pigmentation.
What Problems Areas Can M22 Laser Treatment Treat?
The customisable settings on the M22 Laser greatly expands the range of skin conditions and irregularities that can be treated in a single photo therapy session.
Treating Wrinkles And Ageing Skin
The typical signs of skin ageing can be significantly reduced with just one M22 laser treatment series. Various light pulses and laser energy frequencies can be configured to reach not only the outer layers, but also deep connective tissue layers of the skin. Collagen fibres are increased, pores are refined and the general tightness of the skin results in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.
Treating Pigmentation Disorders Such As Age Spots
The intensity of the laser energy can be selected to specifically target and destroy melanocytes, the cells that give the skin it’s colour. These destroyed cells are then naturally removed by the body resulting in a decrease in pigmentation in the area treated.
Treating Vascular Issues Such As Spider Veins And Rosacea
The Nd:YAG and the IPL modules of the M22 laser can be configured to target and selectively eliminate vascular issues such as broken capillaries and spider veins. The high energy waves pass through the epidermis, to be absorbed exclusively by vascular structures. The heat energy destroys these structures, leaving them to be naturally resorbed by the body as part of the healing process.
Excess Hair Removal By Laser
The Mss laser can provide permanent removal of excess hair by selectively targeting laser energy at the root of the hairs. This produces heat energy that permanently destroys the hair root, without affecting the surrounding skin.
Who Is A Suitable Candidate For M22 Laser Treatment
The vast level of customisable settings of the M22 Laser mean a whole host of skin conditions, types and complexions can be treated. A combination of areas can also be targeted in a single session.
