1565nm ResurFX laser heats columns deep in the skin without any cutting. This is powerful technology for treating tone and texture issues in the skin including scars and stretch marks, while minimizing downtime. Traditional resurfacing lasers cut the skin, causing redness and sometimes bleeding. ResurFX, like Fraxel, heats the skin without cutting the epidermis, giving excellent results including tightening of the skin.
“The histology studies are what separates this device from the imposters,” says fellowship-trained laser and cosmetic dermatologist Michael Swann. “And the wide array of scanning options allow very even treatment coverage. This is not like a CO2 resurfacing in that a client may want this done once or twice per year to preempt photo-aging.” Before non-ablative fractionated lasers, people who made their living in front of the camera or in the public eye didn’t have a lot of options for quality treatments without taking serious time off work. This is a game-changer in no-downtime treatments that make impressive anti-aging strides.
IPL Skin Treatments use Photorejuvenation to treat the full face for a more even skin tone and an overall more radiant complexion. IPL provides gradual improvement over 4 to 6 treatments with very low risk and no “downtime,” and is safe enough for application on the neck, chest and hands. All IPL devices are not created equal and Lumenis brought IPL technology to market.
The M22 has Optimal Pulse Technology (OPT™), interchangeable filters and light-guides allowing treatment of a variety of cosmetic concerns including photorejuvenation. We have all of the filters to treat red discolorations, sun spots, brown discolorations, photorejuvenation, poikiloderma, veins, acne, and even hair removal.
Our 1064nm long pulsed Nd:YAG offers excellent safety while treating deeper blood vessels than IPL can accomplish. The secret to the safety is that the laser pulses are delivered as multiple sequential pulses, allowing the adjacent tissue to cool. This allows the most energy to be delivered to the target vessels and optimizes outcomes in fewer treatment sessions. This is a great addition to our Gemini long-pulsed Nd:YAG laser.
