Unlock your skin’s potential with the Lumenis® M22 Intense Pulsed Light Photo Facial. This customizable energy-based light treatment brings your skin back to a healthy, even tone with minimal to no downtime or discomfort.  

The damaging effects of the sun’s UV rays and environmental factors such as pollution and free radicals can result in hyperpigmented age spots, sunspots, and broken blood vessels.  

The FDA cleared Lumenis® energy based light treatment works with your skin to remove these imperfections over a series of treatments, while stimulating collagen and elastin fiber production. 

Developed by the pioneers of aesthetic medicine, the Lumenis® IPL can even eliminate freckles, birthmarks, rosacea, and broken capillaries.

How does it work?

The IPL Photo Facial allows treatment of pigmentation and vascular imperfections, while improving overall skin appearance. 

Lumenis® IPL with Optimal Pulse Technology (OPT™) enables us to customize your treatment according to your skin type and desired results, with maximum safety.  Light pulses penetrate the tissue and create heat, targeting skin imperfections in a controlled manner. 

Your body’s natural process of “shedding” then removes the treated tissue, while collagen and elastin fiber stimulation occur, resulting in a visible improvement in skin tone and overall appearance.

What can I expect?

When will I see results?

Skin concerns such as shallow pigmentation or sunspots can be cleared with as few as 1-2 treatments.  Although, 2-6 sessions with 2-4 weeks in between are typically needed to achieve optimal results for most skin concerns. 

What will I feel during and after treatment?

To ensure your utmost comfort, our clinician will apply cold coupling gel on the treatment area.  You may experience a warm sensation as the light is applied to the skin, but the treatment is gentle and should not feel too uncomfortable.

Immediately following treatment, you may experience some redness, depending on your customized treatment settings.  The redness will usually disappear within a few hours. 

In most cases, makeup may be applied, and daily activities can be resumed within 24 hours.  You should avoid direct sun for a few days following treatment and always apply a sunblock.

How can I learn what treatment plan is right for me?

Whether paired with CO2 laser resurfacing for an even more customized treatment, or solely on its own, the Lumenis® IPL Photo Facial at Smith Cosmetic Surgery & Medical Aesthetic Center will have you feeling great about your skin’s appearance.
